Getting Political / by Kyle Darnell

Political cartoons are pretty important. Throughout history they have been used to shine light on a dark subject or even further propagate the opinion of the either a government or a news paper. Linked below is a pretty brief history of political cartoons. There are several pages, they don't take too long though.

Your job is to find a political cartoon, past or present, and write a little bit about it. Also post a link so everyone can see. Don't just type in political cartoons either. There is a lot of information out there and several famous artists even contributed throughout the year. For example, did you know that DR. Seuss was a very successful political cartoonist? Did you also know drew anti Japanese propaganda cartoons for the US government during ww2? Thats what i'm saying, dig around a little.
