Here, cartoonist Thomas Nast condemns Republican presidential nominee James Blaine and his most vocal advocates, New York Tribune editor Whitelaw Reid (left) and Congressman William Walter Phelps of New Jersey (right), for being shameless. Blaine is a thick-skinned rhinoceros, impervious to ethical understanding, criticism, or ridicule, as he lumbers about in the circus-ring (a common metaphor for politics). Reid and Phelps are shameless for endlessly justifying their candidate's every moral misstep. The title is taken from St. Paul's letter to the Philippians, chapter 3, verse 19, in which he condemns those "who set their minds on earthly things."
