Synopses & Reviews
You can tell where he stands, tell that he thinks it out. It's satire in the Jonathan Swift tradition of satire. He really believes it--there's fire in his stomach. --Cartoonist Mike Peters
With the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning to his credit, Tom Toles is one of the most known and loved (and occasionally reviled) editorial cartoonists working in America today. My Elected Representatives Went to Washington is his cartoon collection, featuring his sometimes whimsical, sometimes scathing, always insightful representations of today's political scene. My cartoons are me, says Toles. They are not detached illustrations of the events. They are less objective but more than unfair. They are my best appraisal of a situation presented in the funniest or most compelling way I can.
