Striking a satirical blow against the political lunacy that has seized America, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist David Horsey has gathered his best cartoons from the Obama Era in a book aptly titled "Refuge of Scoundrels." Also available in classic black and white, this premium version of the book has a few less cartoons, but features every one of them in full color. Horsey starts with Obama's inauguration in 2009, hits the highlights of the 2012 presidential campaign and chronicles the clash between the Democratic president and the Republican House of Representatives. He takes on the greedy Wall Street financiers who brought the U.S. economy to its knees, then goes after the shrill propagandists at Fox News, the mendacity mongers on right wing talk radio and Tea Party Republicans with their wealthy industrialist backers. Horsey mulls over the tough issues, like climate change and the expanding gap between the super rich and everyone else, but also takes a wry look at many of the lighter aspects of American life, from iPhones and porn stars to Black Friday shoppers and befuddled bloggers. If a cartoon book can be an act of patriotism and still a lot of fun, this latest book from David Horsey is it.
