Man of Leisure, King George

Washington artist Kayti Didriksen's painting 'Man of Leisure, King George' depicts President Bush in the well-known style of Manet's 'Olympia', as he is presented with his crown by a depiction of Vice President Dick Cheney. The cartoonish painting has been taken down from the wall at the City Museum of Washington, awaiting a more welcoming venue. (AP Photo/Artomatic, Jim Tretick) Posted by Hello

A picture is worth a thousand words. Seems to me Bush has had too much "lounge" time on his hands as it is. Cheney should have his tongue hanging out salivating over the crown, because that's all he does is lap at Bush's heels. Leadership & initiative seems to be two things this administration lack. I'd like to thank the artist for putting this adminstration in the light it deserves to be in.
