The Mocking of the President: A History of Campaign Humor from Ike to Ronnie (Humor in Life and Letters)
by Gerald C. Gardner (Author)
Nearly every president and would-be president (and their veeps) have left behind a trail of inconsistencies, embarrassments, and downright absurdities. Naturally these have not gone unnoticed by columnists, humorists, cartoonists, and rival candidates. In this book, Gardner ( All the Presidents’ Wits ) examines three decades of poking fun at presidential hopefuls and concludes that the relief it affords voters is a psychological necessity. He presents examples of the clever, sometimes malicious remarks commentators have made. A few of those represented are Art Buchwald, Mark Russell, Johnny Carson, and Jules Feiffer. One broad smile from start to finish, this book should appeal to a large audience. A.J. Anderson, G.S.L.I.S., Simmons Coll., Boston
