Continuing our Election 1912 coverage, we have a page of cartoons on Senator Robert La Follette, whose challenge for the Republican Nomination for President, was pretty much over by the time these cartoons were reprinted in the April 1912 issue of Cartoons Magazine. Like Newt Gingrich, however, La Follette was similarly self-delusional about his chances, and is shown in a couple of the above cartoons, attempting to drag his campaign out of the grave, and insisting that he wasn’t dead. The principal reason for his campaign’s death — Teddy Roosevelt — is also pictured in most of the above cartoons (though, for all we know, he might have not stood a chance, anyway).
Click on the picture, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.
