* Bill Mauldin, who is remembered more for his wartime strips than for his Pulitzer-winning postwar political cartoons. The most famous is a picture of the Lincoln Memorial sobbing after JFK's assassination.

* AccentuateTheNegative
* AnthropomorphicPersonification

to:

* AccentuateTheNegative
AccentuateTheNegative: A left-leaning cartoonist will always conjure up more attacks on the right than praises of the left, and vice versa. Centrists generally portray both sides of the political spectrum negatively, although lately they've gone after the right more often.
* AnthropomorphicPersonificationAnthropomorphicPersonification: Democratic Donkey, Republican Elephant, Wall Street Pigs, etc.



* ChildrenAreInnocent: A child is often displayed to be the victim of dangerous political policies.



* HeManWomanHater[=/=]StrawMisogynist: A common caricature of right-wing politicians.
* HypocriticalHumor: A politician accusing the other side of doing something immoral while doing that same thing as well. Or a politician denying a claim about him while demonstrating otherwise.
* TheKlan: Portraying Republicans as Klan sympathizers is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Ironically, the KKK were actually affiliated with the Democrats.



* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: Generally the portrayal of the U.S. President will be anything but sympathetic.



* RippedFromTheHeadlines

to:

* RippedFromTheHeadlinesRippedFromTheHeadlines: Virtually every major story is going to be covered, from every political turn in an election, to major legislation passed, to deadly tragedies, to even flash-in-the-pan fads (i.e., there were dozens of Ice Bucket Challenge cartoons when it was popular).


Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanU: "Berzerkeley" tends to be more focused on, as it's a far more common theme. Right-wing
* VerySpecialEpisode: A cartoon about a deadly tragedy or a solemn holiday will usually be completely humorless.

Most British newspapers still have political cartoonists on the strength. A typical example would be Steve Bell, who draws both editorial cartoons and a long-running daily political strip called ''ComicStrip/{{If}}'' for the [[BritishNewspapers Guardian]]. Cartoonists of other political hues are also available.
