Blaine Eating Crow

Above, the centerspread cartoon from the November 26th, 1884 issue of Puck magazine, by artist Bernhard Gillam. Titled, Thanksgiving Day, 1884 — “Let Us Be Thankful!”, referring to the nation being thankful that former Speaker of the House, James G. Blaine, had failed in his bid for the Presidency.

We can also be thankful, that poly-faced liar Mitt Romney failed in his bid for the White House. His comments this week past — delivered to an audience of his rich donors, once again recorded without his knowledge — reiterated & reinforced his earlier “47%” diatribe. Romney’s remarks this time, in my opinion, are racist and sexist as well, and take his initial perverse analysis of America, even further. It makes crystal clear, to even those who denied he meant what he said when was recorded the first time, that he views most Americans as a worker chattel slave class, who, by asking for a second bowl of gruel, are stealing from the plutocratic elite that by right should own everything.

Click on the above cartoon, to view it in far greater detail, and to be able to read its captions.
