Bill Clinton. Bob Dole. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Newt Gingrich. For John R. Rose, it’s politics as usual. His editorial cartoons illuminate, enlighten, and tickle the funny bone. His is a special brand of political cartooning: hilarious, yet oftentimes poignant and moving.
In Cartoons That Fit the Bill: An Editorial Cartoon Collection about Washington and Beyond, he lampoons the antics of Pres. Bill Clinton and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich with equal fervor. No Republican, Democrat, or Independent is safe from the wit and pen of Rose.
National issues are not the only ones he tackles. He also offers his commentary on local issues that create a national interest such as Disney’s proposed American history theme park in his native Virginia.
Cartoons That Fit the Bill is just the ticket (no pun intended) to take a light-hearted look at the cast of characters in the political arena.
