Barack Buries Britney's Beaver

Not only that, he apparently hates Jeff Spicoli... Art and politics collide at event:

Before the Illinois senator spoke Tuesday night at a Richmond art gallery to about 500 Democrats, an Obama advance woman asked the gallery to cover one painting deemed potentially offensive and to remove another.

Artist Jamie Boling said he first was offended by the censorship but now has mixed feelings. In today's political and cultural climate, the pictures could have been used against Obama, he said.

The painting that was removed was one of a woman wearing a T-shirt that read "Kill Lincoln," an homage to the 1982 movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

The one that was covered was a 6-by-10-foot oil reproduction of a widely circulated pop culture photo showing pop star Britney Spears, sans underpants, getting out of a car, with Paris Hilton in the driver's seat. The Boling piece blurs the nudity.

"I wished we could have had a good dialog about freedom of speech," Boling said, but added, "I understand that a politician would want to avoid being photographed in front of Britney Spears' crotch."

So what Jefferson was saying was "Hey! You know, we left this England place because it was bogus. So if we don't get some cool rules ourselves, pronto, we'll just be bogus too." Yeah?



Censorship by public officials! Say it isn't so!

Speaking of censorship, remember when Attorney General Ashcroft had the Art Deco statues of Justice covered with sheets because of their naked torsoes? Supposedly, it was none other than Monica Goodling who drove that decision:


Why are we so scared of our bodies? Especially naked lady bodies? Don't we know that God made us in His image?

Jake? You have a naked lady body? That IS scary.

Yes, I keep it in my refrigerator.

So that he'll always have an on hold skeezer.

Well Jake. Finally an answer to why your ice always tastes so "fishy".
