John Martinek Editorial Art Republican Party
The Grand Old Party Has Departed
12 x 13
August 2018

The burning carcass of the Republican Party, symbolized by the Trojan elephant figure in the center of the image, sits abandoned by those who have finally discarded the veneer of integrity and of service to we the people. No longer do they hide behind any feigned set of principles. Instead they supplicate themselves to an idiot criminal president in exchange for wealth and power. They purposely destroy democracy to prove their assertion that government cannot work. Vultures spring from the fire and smoke and stand guard on either side of the carcass of the capitol building below. They are feasting on the remains. Everything is happening right before our eyes. We must vote to defeat every single one of them before we are consumed.
