Dr. Seuss was Awesome

I did a post recently at The Astute Bloggers on editorial cartoons by Dr. Seuss. I just posted one cartoon there but planned to do a more expansive post on his cartoons here. My friend Joia is the one who originally lent me the book, Dr. Seuss Goes to War by Richard H. Minear. Then, since it was taking me forever to sit down and look at the book she found this website with a goldmine of all his editorial cartoons.

It is amazing how these cartoons totally apply to the appeasers of today. You hear how this war is so different than other wars (except Vietnam) and yet there have always been Neville Chamberlains to whine about "talking" with the enemy.

Seuss was actually a Democrat but he was one back when Democrats still cared about national security.

If you go to the website you learn that he did editorial cartoons during World War II from 1941-43. He created over 400 editorial cartoons during that time.

It seems enemy propaganda was a problem during World War II also.

Check out the rest here!

Wordsmith has posted a bunch of them as well!!
