    Description

    Unusual 1948 Truman Anti-Republican "Crying Towel". 20.55" x 18". An example of turning your opponent's talking points back on them, this bar towel or "Republican Crying Towel" is captioned with several Republican barbs at the Democrats including "The Donkey is the only animal that can't reproduce it's [sic] kind", "That's not a dime, that's a Democratic dollar", and "I'm happy to pay taxes but I'd be just as happy paying half as much", and several other pithy sayings and caricatures. There's a 2.5" long separation at the basting on the edge of the towel and it is slightly faded, otherwise it is in very good condition.
