    Are there any paintings showing Jefferson in the same self-important, I don’t give a rat’s putootie about the laws kind of pose?  Maybe, but it might have come out by now.

          sabawa:  I can guarantee you that there aren’t.  No self-respecting painting would have done that.  I’m willing to believe, though, that there are satirical newspaper cartoons that were unflattering to Jefferson, especially given the rumors about his mistress.  But no, even as a joke, the Founders wouldn’t sink so low, since they were very image conscious — their image, as national leaders and gentleman, was dignified.
