The most influential cartoonist now working." -The New York Times
Neither Democrat nor Republican is safe from the influential paintbrush of political commentator and cartoonist Pat Oliphant. A master of what he calls "confrontational art," Oliphant spares no one as he covers Bush's tenure in office-drawing comparisons on the war in Iraq to Vietnam, Kim Jong Il's nuclear antics to a circus act, and President George W. Bush's time in office with the reign of The Little King.
* Oliphant is the most widely syndicated political cartoonist in the world, currently published in more than 500 newspapers and magazines worldwide, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the New Yorker.
