Post-Election Desperation on the Right
This image was made by photographer Scout Tufankjian not this week but in Iowa last summer.* This week, however, it acquired notoriety because the Obama campaign included it in a celebratory - "Four More Years" - tweet and plastered it across their Face Book page.
kicked the snot out of the hapless Republicans. And they did so under far from auspicious economic circumstances. The right - including not just the usual talking heads but the editorial board at The Economist - seem not to have noticed. I hope the new Obama administration does notice and that they press their political advantage rather than embracing a supine bi-partisanship.
* I found this at Tufakijan's web page: "NOTE: Scout was not employed by or affiliated with the Obama campaign in any manner, shape, or form. She was a journalist covering the campaign." It is important to underscore that disclaimer because of the potentially misinterpret-able statement in the report to which I link above. It states "Tufankjian has been a campaign photographer with President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign since the beginning."
