The Republican Party Down to Date—
Republican Party (U.S. : 1854- )
Ink drawing published in Art Young and Heywood Broun’s The Best of Art Young (New York: Vanguard Press, 1936). In this cartoon, Young criticizes Republican president Calvin Coolidge by comparing him to Lincoln. Lincoln is depicted as a tall, classical bust, while Coolidge is comically small and dressed in a business suit. This suggests that the leaders of the Republican Party have deteriorated from heroes like Lincoln to unremarkable men like Coolidge.
