Unless you really, truly have mastered the skill of avoiding the relentless onslaught of election coverage that is all around us, you're well aware that Mitt Romney is having a phenomenally terrible week, and that it comes on the heels of the awfully terrible week he had last week.

About the artist:

Lalo Alcaraz is perhaps the most prolific Chicano artist in the nation, according to his own bio. Lalo has been busy for over two decades chronicling the political ascendancy of Latinos in America and vigorously pushing the boundaries of Chicano art in the Post Chicano Art Era.

An award-winning journalist and illustrator, Lalo is also an author, faculty member at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles, and radio host. He is also the creator of the first nationally-syndicated, politically-themed Latino daily comic strip, “La Cucaracha.”

Lalo’s most recent project is a re-boot of the famed Pocho.com, his pioneering humor, satire and cerveza webzine/blog/news site.
