The Economist Likes Mariachi Music

The April 20th issue of The Economist published an opinion piece on American Politics. The picture has a group of Democratic leaders dressed in Mariachi suits and carrying assorted musical instruments. The image includes actor George Clooney.

At the front we see Al Gore carrying a guitar which is a traditional instrument in Mariachi music, but what about Kerry with a banjo? Towards the back we see an image of former Pres. Clinton with a saxaphone an instrument he is known to play. Does Kerry play the banjo?

Perhaps the image is meant to tie into this nations heated debate on immigration, but the article does not address that specific issue.

Michael Shaw of The Huffington Post provides his take on the article and the image here.
