The Christmas Ornament That Roared

We already hit on this years' Bush Grindhouse Christmas Ornament rhubarb.

It seems, though, that the Right Wing Freak Show got a little huffy over it.

Kathy, from Comments from Left Field notes;

Mary Katharine Ham administers a scolding to Deborah Lawrence [emphasis mine]:

What are these people going to do for a muse when their “terrorist-in-chief” is gone? Even their protest art, fueled by such all-consuming righteous indignation, has proven banal and predictable at every turn, fraught with hackneyed Hitler imagery and the occasional bodily fluid. How very 1990s.

The latest fruitless artistic tantrum comes from Seattle artist Deborah Lawrence, who was asked by her local representative, Jim McDermott and Laura Bush to decorate an ornament for the White House Christmas tree. Each representative commissioned an ornament from a local artist of his choosing.

Spurning the honor bestowed upon her, the good will encouraged by the season, and any manners her mother ever taught her, Lawrence set about creating an impeachment ornament, featuring pictures of McDermott and thanking him for his backing of another fruitless tantrum— the effort to impeach Bush. How festive!


… The cranky collage artist, apparently unimpressed by the rather rare opportunity of having her elementary arts and crafts admired by foreign dignitaries and heads of state, refused to allow her paste and magazine clippings to work in the service of American hegemony.
Mary Katharine Ham?

The former Townhaller (now sitting in Little Billy Kristol's playpen?) who is completely unaware of Google and Wikipedia?

Oh, I thought it was somebody who actually had something important to say.

Kathy added that "Imagine that. Doesn’t everyone yearn to serve American hegemony? I mean, it’s like refusing an opportunity to eat a double stack of banana pancakes smothered in butter and syrup."

Hmmm ...

I wonder if Ms. Hamm believes if that Obama Waffle Mix is part of the "American Hegemony?

Back to the Christmas Ornaments, we have news this evening that another was accepted;

White House Tree Ornament in Honor of Tim Russert

Start the cutting the squares for the office poll ... There's three more 'Meet The Press' programs before Christmas ...

Which one, perhaps with son Luke in studio, will close out the show with a feature on it?
