Additional Information: 

This anti-Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) political button is styled after the mascot of Mad Magazine, Alfred E. Neuman.  Neuman often appears on the cover of Mad Magazine above his catch phrase, “what me worry?” and his image has been repeatedly used in political cartoons to invoke stupidity.  

LBJ became the 36th President of the United States after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.  He campaigned for President in 1964 and won with the 61% of the popular vote (the widest popular margin in American history) against Barry Goldwater.
