PAT OLIPHANT is a threat to the american political system…if I was in the white house, I’d lock him up and throw away the key – ART BUCHWALD said about PAT OLIPHANT, my favorite american political cartoonist. he was born in australia and came to the U.S. in 1964, where he soon became one of the most circulated political cartoonists. he is winner of the pulitzer prize and the prestigious reuben award. it is not just his sarcastic humor I like so much, it is his ability to caricature everything, from the smallest detail in the environment, to the most unimportant people standing around. and all that in his very personal aggressive style.
