    Just saw this while perusing the news. The artist that Obama admired enough to select to paint his official portrait, Kehinde Wiley, also painted this horror:

    But but but the flowers were of a kind from his home country, Kenya. You know, Kenya. Where he was born.

    The painting of her looks better than she ever has, or will ever look, in real life.

    I think it will look great hanging on the wall at any or all of the Chucky Cheese restaurants.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the other end of the sow.
    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    He has an extra finger on his left hand or the artist put his thumb on the wrong side. The distance from his wrist to his fingertips is longer than his forearm. Also his left butt cheek must be hanging off the chair or the chair has no arm, but it is slightly showing between his left arm and body so it must be there.

    These were all criticisms of the picture that I read today.

    People are talking about how out of proportion his hands are to the rest of him. Subliminal message?

    It's embarrassingly bad. So far I haven't heard one positive comment, but maybe I should run over to Moveon.org to really appreciate the exquisite beauty of that fine work of art.

    It is rumored that she was dressed to appear on RuPaul's Drag Queen show. I don't know, it could be just my failing eyesight, but based on past rumors and the painting it appears she/he meets all requirements.

    Didn't she star in some Star Wars movies as Han Solo's buddy?

    Once the truth finally comes out about his African birth, will this comic book portrait be taken down and put in the two-holer out back that will be his unPresidential Library?

    Kehinde Wiley also painted this; ( Yes that is a white womans head in her left hand) I am quite sure if a white artist would have shown a white woman with black womans head it would be all over the news.

    Seriously, both of them look pretty amateurish. I hope we didn't pay much for them, and I'm afraid that we did.
