Makes Puck Tattooed


EDITORS COMMENTS
1. Title: "The New Tattooed Man: Theodore Roosevelt's Unconventional Campaign Promise" This intriguing illustration, published in Puck magazine on April 10, 1912, presents a surprising image of Theodore Roosevelt, the former President of the United States. In this cartoon, Roosevelt is depicted as a tattooed man, with intricate designs covering his body, and the text "Under no circumstances will I be a candidate" entwined around his form. At the time, Roosevelt was considering a third-party run for President against the two major party nominees, Woodrow Wilson of the Democrats and incumbent President William Howard Taft of the Republicans. The illustration, created by an unknown artist, was likely meant to poke fun at Roosevelt's potential candidacy and his perceived unconventional approach to politics. The title "The New Tattooed Man" is a playful reference to the popular sideshow attraction of the time, "The Human Cabinet," a man named Martin C. Bates who had his body covered in intricate tattoos and made a living by exhibiting himself to the public. By comparing Roosevelt to a tattooed man, the cartoonist was implying that the former President's political ambitions were just as unusual and unwelcome. Despite the playful tone of the illustration, the political implications were serious. The cartoon reflects the political climate of the time, with Roosevelt's potential candidacy seen as a disruptive force in the two-party system. Ultimately, Roosevelt decided against running as a third-party candidate, but the image of him as a "new tattooed man" remains a fascinating snapshot of American political history.
