Executive Mansion and Capitol Building Spar (in a cartoon)

Yesterday's post reminded me of this cartoon by Eric W. Dennis, Jr., which appear in the Insight Newspaper in (if I labelled it correctly) October 2012, at the time of the induction of the new congress. using the Executive Mansion and the Capitol as symbols of the Ministry of State and the Legislature. Nice use of…metonymy? Funny detail of the streetlamp in front of the mansion, but odd that the face comes out of the side instead of the front. Nice dialogue too, including the popular African proverb,“When two elephants fight, the grass suffers.”
