New York Observer -Primary Color

JANUARY 12, 2012

Here's a relatively quick turn around piece I did on the eve of the New Hampshire primary. Lauren Draper from the New York Observer called asking for a spoof of National Lampoon's Vacation, with the candidates in the beat up station wagon. The GOP elephant on the roof is a nod to the story of how Mitt Romney would put the family dog in it's travel case and strap it to the top of the car when the family would head north to their New Hampshire lake house.
This has been a surprisingly fun, entertaining primary season. I hope Mitt doesn't wrap it up too quickly.  Ronald Reagan's 11th commandment of " Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican" has devolved into a Tarantinoesque Mexican standoff, with capiotalism, shockingly, being one of the weapons aimed against Romey. What a soap opera.
Here's how it looks in print.
