Conflict of authority

Keppler, Udo J., 1872-1956
A donkey recklessly drives an automobile labeled "Democratic Party," bearing down on the Republican elephant labeled "G.O.P." standing in the middle of the roadway. An arm labeled "Standpatter" reaches out from the left and an arm labeled "Insurgent" reaches out from the right. Each grabs the Republican elephant and pulls it in opposite directions. Caption: Both -- Quick! Come this way, dearie!
