Show Summary Details


The fact that liberal satire found much of its support from Upper Bohemians and exurbanites—those Americans who became “flaming liberals,” as critic Vance Packard caustically observed, “in the safety of their patios and favorite bars”—was not lost on the more politically astute, critically inclined satirists. This chapter demonstrates how Monocle and the Outsider's Newsletter, Jules Feiffer, and comedian Mort Sahl began to realize the critical potential of liberal satire during the early 1960s.
