road kill

Much has already been made of this new, very real, not-a-joke-I-swear-it, “wide stance” logo for next year’s Republican National Convention (for instance, do those at the RNC know that an elephant only stands on his two hind legs for one reason?), but I just can’t get over that this pachyderm in profile looks flat and dead. I know that cartoon shorthand more often uses Xs to connote a character’s demise, but, to my eye, that star really does have the same effect. Combine that with the skid marks on its back, and what else am I supposed to take away from this image?

You can’t make metaphors like this up.
