In 1954 during his campaign for President, Nixon traveled throughout the country throwing around accusations that the Democrats were being soft on communism. Herblock noted the similarities to McCarthy and depicted Nixon crawling out of a sewer reminiscent of a similar cartoon portraying McCarthy. After Nixon saw this cartoon he canceled his Washington Post subscription, the newspaper in which it was published, and once said he needed to “erase the Herblock image.”
