That is what the oppressed in the world do, they revolt to get equality, you idiot.... Just be glad it is just an artist for now... a few more shooting blacks for driving and well don't be surprised if you see real pictures of tea party wars. Those confederate war pictures of the reality of people wanting and fighting for slavery are very sick.

remember the founders revolted and killed via ambushes and terrorist acts like the tea party because of taxation of tea. Not for being anything as in-human as making people slaves.

I think the union can survive an oppressed population revolting in art.

Personally, I don't like the portraits. But, there is a lot of art I don't care for. But, I'm not afraid of it either.

I don't like the original paintings of Judith and Holofernes either all that much. But, in the context of representing the story behind them I get it. An artist should be provocative at times. So, Obama hired an artist who painted provocative recreations of earlier works of art.

Oh my! The sky has fallen.

The classic man-spreading posture (which women hate) on the throne, with very, very long fingers, with an extra one added to his left hand. When put in context along with all those other official portraits, it really makes it look like a cartoon. But I really like it, for alternative reasons, I hope it is never replaced.

The portrait shows Obama's true nature. He might as well be taking a dump.

man trump won this district with 73 or so percent what a major major flip.... in KY...



https://www.vox.com/2018/2/20/17034262/kentucky-special-election-linda-belcher

Democrats just flipped a Kentucky state legislature seat in a district Trump won by 49 points

Quote:
Democrat Linda Belcher was just pronounced the winner of the special election in Kentuckyís House District 49, a seat that Donald Trump carried by a 72-23 margin in 2016 and that went 66-33 for Mitt Romney in 2012.

Her 68-32 victory represents a ridiculous 45-point improvement on Hillary Clintonís performance. In fuller context, itís a little less ridiculous than that. Belcher had previously represented this district in the state legislature, lost a very narrow 50.4-49.6 race in 2016; then the man who defeated her, Dan Johnson, killed himself while under a cloud of sexual assault allegations. The GOP nominated Johnsonís widow and Belcher reclaimed her old seat.

Still, Belcher improved by 18 points on her own margin from just 15 months ago ó a very clear sign of Democratsí down-ballot recovery in the Trump era.

Democrats are cleaning up in special elections
According to an extremely useful comprehensive spreadsheet compiled by Daily Kos, across 70 special elections in 2017, Democrats ran 10 points ahead of Clinton and 7 points ahead of Obamaís 2012 results. Those numbers have accelerated into 2018. Across 14 races, Democrats are running 28 points ahead of Clinton and 14 points ahead of Barack Obama.

Historically speaking, special election results usually are somewhat predictive of midterm general election outcomes, though I donít think anyone believes itís realistic for Democrats to obtain a nationwide 45-point swing relative to Clintonís numbers.

Meanwhile, the special elections are already having real-world impact.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has decided to leave a number of formerly GOP-held seats vacant rather than schedule special elections his party might lose, national Republicans are pushing the panic button on an upcoming special House election in Pennsylvania, and GOP leadership is letting scandal-plagued Rep. Blake Farenthold stick around in his seat rather than risk a special election.
