My old friend Harry Weininger took it into his head to run for public office, which I thought was just about the dumbest thing he'd ever done in his life. So, when he asked me to design a campaign poster for him I did, but I have to admit that I had mixed motives. I didn't precisely want him to lose, but if he won I didn't precisely want it to be my fault, either. So, you may notice that this blockheaded public official is hiding one sinister hand with the other, making some sort of secret deal with himself. The clock reads quitting time, but he's still on the job, tireless in the pursuit of blind power. Harry didn't win, which was a good thing for us and a good thing for him, too. As Alphonse de Lamartine remarked in 1850, "The more I see of the representatives of the people, the more I admire my dogs." And I'm not even that fond of dogs.
