The "old" dealer
1 drawing. | Three-panel cartoon shows an older man (labeled "G.O.P.") attempting (and failing) to shuffle a deck of cards (labeled "Patronage"). As he picks up the cards, he complains of being out of practice for 20 years. Reflects Republican inexperience in handling political patronage as they return to power in January 1953.
