Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I start every day with the Tom Toles cartoon in the Washington Post, and consider him to be the Nation's poet cartoonist laureate. I've taken to buying his books as well, for cheer, for reflection, as gifts, and as a collector's item.

The publisher has done this book a real dis-service by not using Amazon's "about the book" information upload capabilities. The table of contents, for example, not provided by the publisher, is provided here to demonstrate that this is a "serious" cartoon book that is both hysterically funny, and poignantly pointed at REALITY. The contents, as organized by the author:

Politics and the Election
Gays and Religion
Law and Regulations
Press and Media
Health and Education
Science and the Environment
Social Security
The Economy and Budget
Security
WMD and Beyond

This is, quite simply, a sensational book. I will end by noting, somewhat pointedly, that Tom Toles' human wisdom as displayed across all these topics, makes a great deal more sense to me than the idiot "banana words" of most Republican and Democratic candidates for any elective office. Tom Toles for President! (I smile--he's too good a man for the job, unless we change the way we elect Presidents).

Consider also Googling for his web site and sharing his daily cartoons with others--Tom Toles is as close as we get in America to the Solidarity movement and samizdat freedom thinkers that broke the back of communism--now we need to break the back of ideological extremism and predatory capitalism, and that can start with the sharing of Tom Tole's great work.

"Now Who Do We Blame" (2005), the most recent collection of Tom Toles' feisty editorial cartoons, focuses on the first three years of George W. Bush's presidency. (A few date from 2002, the year Toles succeeded Herblock as the editorial cartoonist for the Washington Post).

Toles begins the book with a disgruntled reader's complaint that your " portrait of [ President Bush] makes him look like some kind of little animal. I think this is highly disrespectful . . . . His ears are in his head in the same place everyone else's are." Toles reponded by noting that the photograph of Bush included with the letter "looked just like my caricature, to me." Both of them are right. The reader, because GWB does come off looking "like some kind of little animal. Toles because there's no mistaking that it's GWB he's caricaturing.
See the accompanying illustration of the book's cover.

Toles takes no prisoners. President Obama's ears are every bit as exaggerated in a Toles' cartoon as the Bush ears in the Bush years. The first cartoon in " Now Who Do We Blame" is titled "Drawing Lesson" It demonstrates "how many tunings you can draw with just this straight line" - an inch long horizontal line. One of the examples given "Electrocardiogram of the Democratic Party." It reflects a party with no pulse at all.

Toles does something with his cartoons that is, if not unique, distinctive. He often uses several bubbles in one cartoon to develop his point. Take his cartoon for July 25, 2004. It employs six bubbles, in two rows of three. In the first GWB declares "I'm a War President." In the next, showing the President holding a golf club, "I mean I'm a Par President; " next "I mean I'm a Pear President" (here he is shown teeing up a pear).
