Story highlights

  • His most recent work -- "The Wizard of Iz" -- is modeled after L. Frank Baum's "The Wizard of Oz"

Sumter, South Carolina (CNN)

In the center of town where the bureaucrats dwell
And the housing projects emit their own unique smell
    And there's nothing to buy or even to sell
    Lies the corpse of the beaten Gorax.
    Thus begins the self-proclaimed anti-environmentalist parody book "The Gorax," copies of which were floating through the line of supporters waiting to hear Donald Trump at a South Carolina rally.
    Also discovered by CNN in line: Dr. Truth himself. Loren Spivack created these Dr. Seuss-themed tales for the Republican set and uses the nom de plume, which sort of rhymes with Seuss.
    "The Gorax" is one of three Dr. Truth books written in verse and illustrated by Patrick Fields.
    "There are about 20,000 of these in circulation," Spivack said. "It's pretty good for a book that's in zero bookstores."
    The first, written in 2010, is modeled after Seuss' classic "The Cat in the Hat" and lampoons the Obama administration. Spivack said he followed the initial printing with five new editions over the years. He followed with "The Gorax," which targets former Vice President Al Gore. Gorax. Gore. Get it?
    His most recent work -- "The Wizard of Iz" -- is modeled after L. Frank Baum's "The Wizard of Oz" and substitutes former President Bill Clinton for the not-so-wonderful Wizard of Oz and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for the Wicked Witch of the West.
    Spivack, the father of six children, says that while his political humor is probably beyond the target audience of Seuss books, his older children are his biggest critics.
    "I show them the drafts, and they're like, 'That rhyme has got to go,'" Spivack laughed.
    While he travels the country attending and speaking at conservative conferences and campaign events and CNN discovered him in line for a Trump event, Spivack is officially neutral for the primary season and says he will support whoever becomes the GOP nominee. He tries to write books that all Republicans can rally around.
