Don't It Make the Red States Blue

If there were nothing else interesting at all about this election, it would still go down in history as having inspired the best campaign art EVER.




And this is just a small sample. Art has power.

P.S. You should have seen Harlem last night! The plaza in front of the state offices was thronged with crowds of cheering people, peppered with police and photographers and general merry-makers. There were fast-food vendors doing brisk business and reporters gauging feelings as everyone watched speeches and poll results on a huge outdoor screen. E and I ran up onto our roof and watched the helicopters, marchers, horn honkers, cheering crowds, fireworks, and other jubilant expressions that lit up the night until the wee hours. This was quite an election!

I will agree with you on the art. There has been some great artwork that has come out of the election. Hopefully this will be indicitive of the next four years.

Wow. I hadn't even seen most of those posters - seriously fabulous.

There was no partying at the ranch. I kind of wish I had been there to see it all :) Was there someone selling Poland Springs water bottles for $3 each?
