"The Party Line"
How does ones mind end up following a party line in all ways? Difficult question. In any case, that’s the title of the above aquarelle, which features Democrat in Chief Howard Dean feeding Becky Tuch, editor of the Review Review. In supine position is courtjester poet Ian Thal. The sketch was influenced by Goya’s “Las Chinchillas.” Tuch had written a politically-correct inspired negative review of an issue of The American Dissident. I'd met Howard Dean briefly, while I was protesting in front of the Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts during the Concord Festival of Authors. He was guest speaker and refused to even take a flyer. A partir de la marde, la creativite! Merci, mademoiselle Tuch et cie.
