  • Short Description
The two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist shreds the GOP’s record of backward policies and abysmal leaders: taking aim at the NRA, foreign policy, Trump, Bush, Ted Cruz, and the abhorrent policies around women’s rights, COVID, and more.

A two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist shreds the GOP’s record of backward policies and abysmal leaders. Luckovich takes aim at the NRA, Trump, Bush, Ted Cruz, and more.

The Twisted History of the GOP is an editorial cartoon exploration into the ongoing crack-up of the Republican party. Once a proud, competent counterbalance to the Democratic party, the GOP began to change in the ’90s with the arrival of Republican representative and future House Speaker Newt Gingrich to Congress, assisted by radical radio host Rush Limbaugh and a new television network, the right-wing, propaganda-spewing Fox News. In the years that followed, they were aided by Mitch McConnell and the George W. Bush and Trump administrations, in transforming the GOP into what it is now: a fascist, racist, anti-science, pro-conspiracy cult, in thrall to the twice-impeached conman and former president, Donald Trump.

These cartoons will shock and delight you, and you won’t be able to look away from Luckovich’s witty editorial wisdom. Combining a rapier wit alongside exceptional caricatures, The Twisted History of the GOP will make you laugh until you cry.

“If my old boss, President Gerald R. Ford, came back to life, he wouldn’t recognize the modern GOP and its ongoing perversion of democracy. It would repulse him. What he would like is the work of the brilliant cartoonist Mike Luckovich who paints rabid right-wing Republicans into a corner on every page. His vicious take on the Trump era alone is worth the price of admission. Mike is both a master artist and a political commentator. That is bad news for the GOP and good news for everyone else. President Ford would buy this book.” — David Hume Kennerly, Pulitzer Prize–winning photographer
