"On Tuesday, Glenn Beck focused his unique brand of criticism on the world of classical and modern art. In an effort to criticize political art while emphasizing the freedom of artists to express their beliefs and values, Beck put a President Barack Obama figurine in a jar of urine.
On his Blaze TV program, Beck went through a number of works which he either found offensive for political reasons or simply did not appreciate for aesthetic reasons. While he defended the various artists constitutional rights of expression, he insisted he found many works offensive. He noted that the right of expression is a two way street.
Beck proceeded to take a pallet of oils to the artworks on his wall, adding a pair of thong underwear to one nude subject and jeans and a sweater to another.
Finally, turning Beck turned to political art. In an effort to satirize the famously offensive ‘Piss Christ,’ which featured a crucifix in a jar of urine, Beck made a political statement of his own. To accomplish this, he put a bobblehead doll of President Obama in a mason jar of what he claimed to be urine.
UPDATE: Beck attempted to auction off “Obama In Pee Pee” on eBay, but the online auction service has removed that listing." [Source]
I swear some people will do anything to stay relevant.
Honestly, I can't believe that conservatism has come to this.
Finally, it seems that Mitt's people aren't so upset about the elections, because apparently the people whose votes really mattered to them delivered on Election Day.
"Mitt Romney's former chief strategist Stuart Stevens in an op-ed published on Wednesday touted wealthy, middle-class and white voter support as several of the silver linings to Romney's loss on Nov. 6.
In a Washington Post editorial titled, "Mitt Romney: A good man. The right fight," Stevens wrote:
On Nov. 6, Romney carried the majority of every economic group except those with less than $50,000 a year in household income. That means he carried the majority of middle-class voters. While John McCain lost white voters younger than 30 by 10 points, Romney won those voters by seven points, a 17-point shift.
Romney won over seniors with entitlement reform, raised more money for the GOP than the party itself and championed ideas that connected Americans and made them think, Stevens argued.
"Yes, the Republican Party has problems, but as we go forward, let's remember that any party that captures the majority of the middle class must be doing something right," he wrote." [Source]
You have to feel sorry for guys like Stuart Stevens; the country is changing and they just can't bring themselves to change with it. He really believes that Mitt Romney ran a good campaign even though he lost. I suppose that getting the white middle class votes was a victory in his mind.
Folks, this is the kind of thinking that causes people to put a doll of the president in a bottle of piss to raise money for charity.
