Walt Kelly's Pogo: Taking Over the White House

In a 1960 Pogo comic strip by Walt Kelly, Fremount's mother explains to Pogo some ambitious plans for taking over the White House and then actually moving the executive mansion. The 1960 Presidential election was Nixon vs. Kennedy, but as far as I'm aware neither of them proposed moving the White House to the Riviera.

Thomas Haller Buchanan is one of several bloggers who inspired me to start my own blog in 2011. His Whirled of Kelly blog here is publishing a special 'zine called Delineated Life tomorrow as a tribute to the great Walt Kelly on what would have been his 100th birthday.
