Mitt Romney was supposed to sew up the Republican presidential nomination after the South Carolina primary. Instead he was badly beaten by Newt Gingrich in that primary. Also, Romney has been attacked by his fellow candidates and their brutal super PACs. Hence my parody of Romney as the damaged GOP elephant in a cartoon by Thomas Nast. Of course, Romney’s recent release of his 2010 tax return shows that he is definitely NOT financially poor!
You can see the original Thomas Nast cartoon vs. my parody on Romney’s 2012 campaign in my political parodies gallery.
