When I Followed the Elephant offers a glimpse of dodgy American
ideals shortly before the rise of Barack Obama and Obama-mania.
It's an uncertain time that preludes the explosive growth of the
controversial Tea Party Movement. America is entering into yet
another grim cycle of extreme religious and political polarization.
The year is 2007 and the Presidential Primaries are right around
the corner. America is electric with a new sense of political
fervor. Our disconnected hero is Desi Marquiso, a hard-line
Republican who watches Fox News, listens to dicey conservative talk
radio, reads Time Magazine, despises Radical Islam, and mixes his
religious faith with his ideological politics. Desi's also a
conservative theology teacher at a very liberal Catholic high
school. Foolishly convinced the entire faculty and staff is
devoutly left-wing, Marquiso finds himself alone throughout his
school days. This only helps fuel his anti-Left politics. But
that's not all of Desi's troubles: he hasn't had sex in a very long
time; he's experiencing major car issues; he's in the process of
purchasing his first home; he and his wife are expecting their
first child; and he becomes convinced his wife is cheating on him
because he stumbled upon a strange nose hair trimmer in the bedroom
bathroom. Soon enough, Desi's life alters for the worse. Desi
fundamentally becomes an insurgent of his own personal convictions.
But there's hope. Unlike many religious and political extremists of
today, Desi becomes aware of his misguided convictions and soon
realizes that atonement is not too far out of reach.
