From Benjamin Franklin's drawing of the 1st American political comic strip in 1754 to modern cartoonists' blistering assaults on George W. Bush and preliminary love-affair with Barack Obama, editorial cartoons were part of American journalism and politics. American Political Cartoons chronicles the nation's highs and lows in an intensive selection of cartoons that span the full heritage of yank political cartooning."Good cartoons hit you primitively and emotionally," stated cartoonist Doug Marlette. "A comic strip is a frontal assault, a slam dunk, a cluster bomb." so much cartoonists delight themselves on attacking truthfully, if ruthlessly. American Political Cartoons recounts many direct hits, recalling the ache of the cartoons' targets?and the pride in their readers.Through skillful mix of images and phrases, cartoonists provoke public opinion for or opposed to their matters. within the method they've got printed truths approximately us and our democratic approach which were either embarrassing and ennobling. Stephen Hess and Sandy Northrop notice that now not all cartoonists have worn white hats. Many have perpetuated demeaning ethnic stereotypes, slandered sincere politicians, and oversimplified complicated issues.
