The latest political figure to become Ozzified: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, of course, in this cartoon by Paul W. Berge.
"Emeraldine"? I'm guessing Mr. Berge is unfamiliar with Winkies or any other terms for various residents of Oz he could have used. Of course, even if he were, references to the books would be too esoteric for most people to get. In any case, it's a somewhat clumsy metaphor. I mean, Munchkin isn't a gender. I might have had that sign say "witches and wizards" instead. That would at least make more sense than conflating gender with nationality or city of origin, but then again, I wouldn't necessarily expect that loon Greene to know the difference anyway.
