Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as The Munsters

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as The Munsters by David Flaherty

David Flaherty is a New York-based illustrator and designer. Maybe it’s the GOP’s threats to the NEA and PBS or perhaps it’s simply because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan look an awful lot like Herman and Eddie Munster. Inspired by Munsterized photos that have been circulating online since the summer, Flaherty created this nicely stylized rendering of the frightful candidates. A snippet from the original Munsters medley:

If you should meet this strange family,
Just forget what some people have said,
The Munsters may shake your hand clammily,
But they’re not necessarily dead.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but to qualify as “being alive,” a person has to have a working heart, right? Guess that rules out Romney then…
