- Andy Lunde's humorous whirligig shows the former vice president trying to walk over a selection of his infamous quotes, including "We are on an irreversible trend towards democracy---but that could change," and "Hawaii---part of the U.S. that's an island." The upside-down American flag and the four frowning Uncle Sam figures complete Lunde's parody of American politics.
