Romney and Gingrich Campaign Posters January 27, 2012

Posted by Mary W. Matthews in Politics.

A day or two ago, I had a lot of fun putting together this “campaign poster” for Newt Gingrich, the poster boy for sociopathic pussy-hounds, who was convicted of more than 84 crimes, resigned in disgrace, and is baaaaaaaaaaack:

In this morning’s Tampa Bay Times, one of my favorite pundits, Dan Ruth, pointed out that Mitt Romney looks exactly like Peter Boyle’s Monster in Young Frankenstein. (Ruth also commented, “What irks me is that these pols think we’re all a bunch of gullible half-wits.”) Which led me to have some fun making this “campaign poster” for Mitt Romney, the poster boy for Pottersville:

. . . If you think of a better caption, please leave it in the comments section. It will be easy to generate the same poster with a new “campaign slogan.”

I had and idea similar to this ( the Romney poster ), after the finish of the debates tonight, especially as it now suggests a particularly valid point:

“A Startling New Experiment in Political Reanimation – From what was once an Inarticulate Mass of Dead Issues… Presenting a cultured, sophisticated, Man-About-Town: Ritz Romney!”

Problem is, what will he do ( as a “all-businessman” leader of a nation ) if something “unexpected” happens? Businesses very often fail by falling prey to the unexpected.

But, I am amazed that you hit upon this idea so early in the year! Especially now, as even Paul Ryan looks slightly ( but strikingly ) a little like Marty Feldman’s Igor.

Honestly, if it hasn’t already been done on tv yet, you could sell this bit to Letterman!

Great Work!

Just wanted to add that this has inspired me to attempt my own!

Here is a quickly edited cut & paste depicting Mr. Ryan as Igor ( Marty Feldman ) in the “brain-depository” scene. The tentative title is: “What Hunk?”:

I think it well illustrates the point above!
