dc.descriptionA political rally scene featuring a pol waving small American flags, with a stethoscope around his neck. Text exclaimed from his mouth reads "Hooray fuss sons uv birches." Nikita Khrushchev and Adolf Hitler sit at the lower left, while Benito Mussolini and Francisco Franco sit at the lower right. The strange satirical scene, where the central figure resembles Franklin Delano Roosevelt, is influenced by a distorted version of patriotism championed by the John Birch Society. It is similar to Rex et Lex [CMA 2001.034.264] and Five Cent Candy Bar [CMA 2001.034.422].en_US
