Steven Mufson. "Field of Schemes: A Crude Case For War?" The Washington Post. Sunday, March 16, 2008; Page B01.

A Presidential Rogues Gallery: Satirical Posters 1960-Present
The humor and artistry of protest posters offer powerful commentary on political issues.

Lampooned or lambasted, these presidential posters hold our political leaders accountable for social ills, make fun of their foibles, and act as a call to spur activism around a wide range of causes. If you can laugh at someone, you can also challenge him.

Whether mobilizing against war, criticizing social policy, or revealing hypocrisy, this exhibition targets both Republicans and Democrats.
