I found this picture intriguing



It's not quite right somehow. I rather suspect the presidents have had a whole range of skin tones. This doesn't seem super helpful to me.

Yeah, I think it's fishy too. Since when have presidents worn white suits?

I do like the 1st amendment, and its attendant freedoms. I like the way this piece evokes strong feelings. I like its un-PC-ness. I like it calling white privilege into question, and of course, I like Obama, and because of him, at last, am becoming a US citizen - impossible for me under Bush. The artist here didn't do justice to Bush's extreme ugliness, nor to Obama's incredible good looks.

I'm glad you're home darling one!

Thanks to the posted video, I know the names of all the presidents in order. The pictures of some of the last dozen were not that on target. Franklin Rosevelt, for example, was not close. :-(

JFK deserves a little rosary - he's still the only Catholic.

Except for Jed Bartlett.

I think it's a great picture. It's not trying to say everything you can say about US Presidents. But what it does say is says very well.
