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, she shows us magician Mitt Romney sawing the government in half. "It's magic!" But the results are, uh, a bit bloody? The animation, as always, was written, animated and acted by Zina Saunders.
