The Doonesbury strip is part editorial cartoon and part comic strip.

The candidate in question is Uncle Duke, of Doonesbury fame.
CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG:
"Well, obviously, there are a lot of raw feelings on both sides of the issue, so what I would do is cut the Confederate flag and the American flag in half, and sew a new flag from half of each. I might not make much sense from a design standpoint, bit I think it solves the problem of honoring both those who fell in battle defending a controversial labor practice and those who didn't. I'm glad you brought this up, by the way, because I'm a healer. I just want people to get along. I dream of a day when the redneck will sit down in peace with the gang banger and share, you know, some barbecue or something. That's my dream.'
