* TooQualifiedToApply: Discussed during the arc where Zonker goes into training for the Gerald Ford Biathlon: golf and tanning. Zonker hired Bernie as his personal coach, during which Bernie asked why a black man wouldn't outright clinch a tanning competition. Zonker points out that it's a matter of gradient: melanin levels at the outset versus at the conclusion. Bernie starts grousing that it's another form of institutionalized racism, to which Zonker replies, "Man, don't spoil it for the rest of us."

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Politicians, mainly Presidents, routinely appear in this strip, but are either depicted as meaningful icons (such as a [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton waffle]], a cartoon [[UsefulNotes/NewtGingrich bomb]], or a floating [[UsefulNotes/DanQuayle feather]]), or simply represented as speech balloons coming out of the Capitol or the White House.

The series began as a college satire (featuring nerdy Mike Doonesbury and his perpetual helmet-wearing jock roommate B.D.) in 1970; within a couple of years the main cast expanded to feature Zonker Harris (a hippie slacker), Mark Slackmeyer (left-wing radical), JJ Caucus and Barbara Ann "Boopsie" Boopstein (Mike and B.D.'s respective girlfriends), and Zonker's uncle Duke (who was a stand-in for writer HunterSThompson). While it had its genesis mocking Ivy League college life, the series found its footing when the strip expanded into full-blown political satire. B.D. joined the military (to escape having to write a term paper) and Uncle Duke got himself an ambassadorship to China, which led to him getting his own sidekick, the long-suffering Honey Huan.
