PUCK MAGAZINE: THE POLITICAL JANUS

puck joseph kepplerJanuary is an appropriate month for this latest post about Puck magazine (1871-1918). Here at Balladeer’s Blog I’ve long made clear my fascination with that political humor magazine. Puck political cartoons – especially from the covers – are still much sought-after and I own a few myself.

There is no language barrier to satirical political cartoons, so even Americans who spoke no German could follow the editorial drift of those humorous illustrations. In 1877 Puck began publishing both English AND German language editions. Here’s a cartoon from its pro-Theodore Roosevelt heyday depicting the wildly different opinions of the bombastic, “rock the boat of political corruption” T.R.

For newbies, I had been a Democrat for much of my life until Obama’s disastrous and damaging presidency helped motivate me to become an Independent Voter. His callous, clueless, comfortable and uncaring supporters helped, too. I distrust both the Democrats and the Republicans. Trump is a de facto Third Party President.

POLITICAL CARTOONS: A RECENT ROUNDUP
