I found this a clever visual commentary by photographer Brooks Kraft, illustrating the diminution of the Republican Party.

Titled “On View,” it captures a room off the lobby of GOP headquarters in D.C. housing a collection of party memorabilia. Since the memorabilia broadcasts the largest and grandest moments of the party and the central feature of the tilt-shift photo is a lonely podium, there’s a sense here of the party as reduced to midgets.
