Title

Just Who is Head Mahout Around Here?

Description

The term “mahout” is used in South/South East Asia to refer to a person who works with or rides elephants. The symbol of the G.O.P is also an elephant. Ron A. Lewis here makes an ironic illustration on the uncertainty of who will be the “head” rider of the Republican party, as in 1940 there was not a strong candidate for the presidential election.
