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.
It's been said politics makes for strange bedfellows. In this case, those fellows just happen to be furry. In Dog vs. Cat: A Nation Divided, cartoonist Don Asmussen creates a fun and fluffy mix of politics and pets that's outside the box. The litter box, that is.
It has become ever apparent in recent years that divisiveness is poisoning our national debate. Discussion and compromise have been replaced by name-calling, bullying, and veiled hate speech. Never in our history has our country been so fractured between these two groups . . . dog lovers and cat lovers.
Using metaphors from the political scene of both yesterday and today, Dog vs. Cat humorously parodies government silliness and squabbles through the eyes of a cartoon canine and kitty. Humorist Don Asmussen takes us behind the scenes for an investigative look at the controversial Spot vs. Mittens election-one that nearly scratched and clawed our country apart. The media gets accused of cat bias in its coverage of Mittens's affair with JenniPURR Flowers. Meanwhile, Spot's dog license is called into question at the Cat National Convention.
Perfect for the pet owner who keeps an eye on the political arena, Dog vs. Cat scoops the stories-and then the yard-of all the funny, quirky things that cat lovers, dog lovers, and elected humans can do, all in the name of creating a pet-ter tomorrow.
