US congressman John Nance Gardner served as President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s vice president starting in 1932,  but broke ranks during their second term, when he considered going up against Roosevelt if he went for an unprecedented third term (Roosevelt did and won). Hirshman used his nickname “Cactus Jack” to portray the snow-white haired Texan with a face of the prickly plant common in his home state. Hirshman meticulously populated his self-made cactus with nearly 100 sharp protruding thorny-like toothpicks and nails. Garner was despised by another Hirshman caricature, labor leader John L. Lewis, due to the politician’s anti-strike views.

Note: The only documentation of the piece is a black-and-white photo. The current location of the piece is unknown. If you have any knowledge of the caricature, please use the contact page.

    Excellent creating is important in a treatise. Nevertheless, excellent writing can certainly not make up for a scarceness of ideas or even principles. Quite the contrary, a very clear presentation always leaves open weaknesses. Each technical condition used in an argumentation must be defined either through a reference to an earlier released definition (for conventional conditions with their common definition) or even by an accurate, distinct meaning that shows up just before the phrase is made use of (for a new phrase or even a common condition utilized in an unusual technique).
