Starting Political Parodies

Dali paintingWith the ascent of Herman Cain in the polls of republican presidential candidates, I felt that I should include a parody of Mr. Cain. After much thought, I felt that poster for movie 9Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory, painted in 1931, would be an appropriate stark landscape with its lipid watches replaced by pizzas. To represent his 9-9-9 tax proposal, I combined Dali’s painting with the poster used to promote the Shane Acker’s animated movie 9.

Herman CainTo be perfectly truthful, I am not much of a political fanatic. I consider myself an independent with leanings toward the left. I have voted for both republican and democratic candidates in the past, but have been prone to vote democratic recently.

If you bump into me at Starbucks, I probably would not be interested in discussing politics. I am a “techie” and more interested in programming, photoshopping, oils and acrylic painting. I have been doing some of the tutorials on programming xcode for creating iPhone apps. I took some time out to learn WordPress so that I could create this interactive website. I hope to add these other topics to my website in the future.

I don’t know if anyone would be interested in commenting on my website. I know the eventually, I will have to fight off the spammers. In any case, I reserve the right to delete offensive and/or inappropriate comments. However, I welcome comments from the entire political spectrum and would be interested in your thoughts about my political parodies gallery which features parodies on Romney, Gringrich, Santorum, Cain, Perry, Bachmann, Obama, Clinton, Palin and others.
