Is he Riding a Donkey?

Russmo (the only libertarian cartoonist I know of) has an awesome cartoon (via The Statrix):

This is probably one of the most apt representations of the current brand of Republicanism I’ve seen. But it got me thinking about how best to parody the Democrat/Republican mess we’re in, so I came up with this description (I can’t draw) for a libertarian political cartoon that chastizes both parties in one fell swoop:

3/4 angle of airplane from the outside viewing into the cockpit. The view inside reveals an elephant in the pilot seat with his hands over his eyes wearing a hat that reads “pilot,” a one donkey in the co-pilot seat with a hat that reads “co-pilot,” and another donkey behind him with a hat that reads “U.N.” covering the co-pilot’s eyes. In front of the plane (below it) is a dark, jagged mountain that has the following items: social security, medicare, budget deficits, war, nanny state, and bigger government. Behind the plane, in fluffy clouds that are lighter than the rest of the image read the following items: limited government, free trade, balanced budgets, economic prosperity.

Dunno, just an idea I’d like to see. If anyone has some drawing skills, I’ll post it here.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
