Overview

It's been a good year for Pat Oliphant; election years always are! Then again, this astute political observer hasn't had a bad spell in more than 35 years. "Cranky when he wants to be, fiercely independent, relentlessly individualistic," according to the New York Times, Oliphant deftly skewers the political issues of the day-and its ruling elite.From the current campaign craziness to airplane safety, international trade to OSHA regulations, Irish peace to medical malpractice, Oliphant leaves nothing of importance unexplored. In the process, he manages to offend nearly everyone, from presidents and kings to CEOs and the police. Now We're Going to Have to Spray for Politicians will collect the best of the past year, right up to the last minute of chaos surrounding the 2000 elections. Through it all, Oliphant's wry pundit, Punk the penguin, provides a way for the creator to add a witty postscript to his timely political and social commentary.

Editorial Reviews

Pat Oliphant is one of the most experienced and entertaining political cartoonists of our day. Now We're Going To Have To Spray For Politicians is the latest compilation of his insightful, witty, occasionally iconoclastic political cartoons lampooning the Republic and Democratic campaign shenanigans; governmental agency buffoonery, and international political insanities. Oliphant's work is the real-world example and documentation of that old expression that a picture is worth a thousand words — especially in politics!.
