A comic illustration of the "death" of President Obama's "good ideas". Relating to the current events in the U.S. governments political power struggle. the artist caricatures the death of elephants with a sign post marking the elephant graveyard and an armadillos death being run over by a truck. Sargent shows Obama(who is identifiable by his thin body, ears, and haircut) bringing plans for his "good ideas" to the door of the senate, which is seen as a medieval dungeon door. This is a comical way to present the idea that the senate is a place where "good ideas" die. The artist doesn't make a villain of any political party, but criticises a entire senate.
