Four More Wars!!! is a collection of political cartoons by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Mike Luckovich. These simple black-and-white sketches, most of them single-panel, exquisitely capture governmental foibles and follies with unforgettable twisted wit. Collecting cartoons that appeared in newspapers from 2001 to 2006, Four More Wars!!! is especially critical of governmental mistakes in handling the Iraq War--one attributes the words "The Almighty's guiding me" to President George W. Bush while an onlooker comments, "God's lousy at postwar planning"--but also touch upon ethics violations at home, nominations of questionable candidates, and there are even a few private sketches Luckovich drew of White House personnel. A vivacious albeit bitingly critical collection of the most mockworthy moments in new millennium American politics.
