A Cartoon Flip-Flop After New Hampshire’s Primary

NEW YORK Hillary Clinton may have turned the Democratic presidential race upside down when she won last week’s New Hampshire primary. Meanwhile, editorial cartoonist Bob Englehart definitely turned New Hampshire upside down.

Englehart, of The Hartford (Conn.) Courant and the Cagle Cartoons syndicate, did a four-panel drawing last week about Clinton’s victory. In the last panel, the “Live Free or Die” state was flipped.

When contacted by E&P, Englehart replied: “Hah! I made a mistake. I was so focused on making a vertical state fit a horizontal space that I didn’t even notice I had made it upside down! Most people didn’t even notice.”

And he quipped: “I hear New Hampshire is changing its slogan to ‘Live Right Side Up, Or Die.'”
