Via Althouse, picture worth a thousand words about a topic that has exactly zilch-point-jack worth of originality to offer:
Cecilia, of course, was the little old lady who did a special makeover of Jesus. Say what you will of Jimenez’s work. Having been to the Basilica of the Annunciation, which has a full spectrum of Madonnas holding the Christ from around the world, I’ll cop to a shockingly liberal view of such efforts.
Now that “trashing” famous works in this fashion is a meme, one is reminded of #OccupyResoluteDesk. Obama’s chief trick is to take something recognizable, e.g. the Mona Lisa, turn it into crap, and sell it as Hope & Change. He’s been a smashing success smashing the pillars of Western Civilization.
Barack’s triumph of style over substance should not have been so hard to detect. Hence the fact that John McCain called Obama ‘eloquent but empty‘. And the re-election campaign has been a study in intellectual vacuum, a happy face on a George Washington portrait.
Romney wins the election by subtly forcing Barack to reveal that he is the political equivalent of Oakland, CA.
Update: Soopermexican comes at the point from a slightly different vantage. Lacking the raw sack of Neil Armstrong, Obama instinctively attempts to co-opt him. But the the attempt to attach BHO to N.A. is N/A. This is just a variation on the theme of Seal Team 6; find courage, insert self.
