Hoovervilles: 1932 Do-Nothing Economics

Snark is not a new invention, apparently. I like the two-tone color scheme and the lettering style. Not really sure what’s going on with the “v” in “vote”, though. It looks a little like a caliper or some barbaric surgical instrument. Whatever it is, I don’t want to be on the wrong end of it. Maybe that’s the point: vote for Hoover and get this thing applied to you in the least pleasant possible way.

Last thought: Hoover’s do-nothing policies were the wrong way to go, but we better make sure that we’re doing the right thing to address the current economic crisis. It isn’t immediately obvious how supporting the same financial “experts” who got us into this mess will lead us back into prosperity.
