GOP Vote on Obamacare… Again

The House Republicans have scheduled a meaningless vote on Wednesday to vent their anger at Obamacare, yet again. I thought I would draw a giant GOP elephant pooping in a pop-top Capitol toilet. It seemed appropriate.

I worried a bit about how to draw the Capitol as a pop-top toilet, particularly when the Capitol dome would need to be the toilet and the elephant would obscure much of the building. My solution was to pay little regard to the rules of perspective and just go with it – if people don’t get that the Capitol dome is hinged to the back of the toilet tank, well, it’s close enough.

I’ve gotten away from posting my sketches here and I’ve had a couple of requests to do it again, so here’s the rough pencil sketch.

Here is the finished line art. This is how most people will see the drawing in the newspapers that still typically print the editorial pages in black and white.

And here it is in color. Newspaper editors don’t like cartoons with potty themes; I’m not sure how much this one will be reprinted.

BOB L. Like all Republicans they think they can buy everything like they bought the presidency of Pres. Shrub from Texas who created the mess over W of MD that everyone said weren't there. Now they want to buy it for MITT. NEED ANOTHER PUPPET I GUESS FOR BIG BUSINESS. At 81 I pray it can't happen again trying to cure unemployment by sending them to war. Military industrial complex make more fortunes.
