A side-by-side, two-panel cartoon:

Panel 1, labeled "Democrats 2020 Presidential Election Strategy"
Inset: "Immediately after 2016 Election"
Image: Ancient, toothless Pelosi, Schumer and Hillary Clinton racing madly in their wheelchairs, following a "This Way to Get Trump!" arrow sign towards a cliff, chased in turn by millions of lemmings labeled "Democrats". At the bottom of the cliff are jagged rocks sticking up out of the ocean labeled "Political Irrelevancy".

Panel 2, labeled "Democrats 2020 Presidential Election Strategy"
Inset: "New and Improved!"
Image: Ancient, toothless Pelosi, Schumer and Hillary Clinton racing madly in their wheelchairs after Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and a maniacally grinning, lobotomy-scarred Alexandria Occasio Cortez, following a "This Way to Get Trump!" arrow sign towards a cliff, chased in turn by millions of lemmings labeled "Democrats". At the bottom of the cliff are jagged rocks sticking up out of the ocean labeled "Political Irrelevancy".

IMHO, that's golden! You really need to offer that idea to one of the conservative political cartoonists.

Your Panel 2 concept reminds me of the photos and videos of Sen. Ed Markey standing next to AOC when they rolled out their "Green New Deal" bs:


This could be titled "Clueless and the Cadaver".

Nancy Pelosi as the Wicked Witch of the West, hiding a key behind her back, saying "Fly, my pretties, fly!", urging Flying Blue Monkeys Jerry Nadler and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, together holding a "Bill of Impeachment", but who are both straining against ankle chains padlocked to a block of stone labeled "2020 elections", to attack a pigtailed-and-ginghamed Trump.

(By the way, as famous as that line is, it apparently never actually appeared in the movie. The WWotW only said "Fly, fly fly!" to her Flying Blue Monkeys, and refered directly to Dorothy as "My pretty." Somehow the two lines have become conflated over the years.)

Great idea for a cartoon...too bad it won't be published in the New York Times. They recently announced that the Old Gray Lady will no longer publish editorial cartoons. Sigh.
