Editors' note: Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week's animation, just in time for the Iowa caucuses, she details the dangerous side effects of voting Republican. The animation, as always, was written, animated and acted by Zina Saunders, with thanks to Patrick B for the inspiration. Sound effects courtesy of freesound.org.
