American Gothic

Date: July 14, 1981
Type: Political cartoon

A man and woman are shown in the style of the "American Gothic" painting. The woman is meant to be Sandra Day O'Connor, the man Jerry Falwell. A sign in the back says, "The Jerry Falwell Church of the Moral Pejorative - A Tax-Free Organization." Caption: 'Supreme Court, indeed! Get back in your place, woman!' Another character says, "Would that be in the kitchen, sir? Or barefoot and pregnant, perhaps?"
