BREAKING: George Bush Uses Common Images To Paint Portraits!

OMG! The humanity! If you didn't hate George Bush before this discovery, surely you will now!

George W. Bush's solo art show "The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy" has just opened at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas, Texas. Moving on from paintings of dogs and bath time, the exhibit features 30 oil-on-board paintings of world leaders. It appears as if they are all lazy reproductions of some of the first Google image search results.

Here's an example of the blatant, STOLEN artwork of which Bush is accused by this left-wing investigative journalist:


Oh, wait! That isn't it. Forget you saw that one. It is this one:


OH, THE HORROR! I can't believe Bush has a hobby painting portraits of world leaders and he has the audacity to use existing, popular pictures!

A real President would have loaded up a Presidential plane with a full security detail and flown - at taxpayer expense - to each country and had the leaders sit for their portraits. And then sent the wife and kids to another country for a vacation.

1 If George Bush walked on water and raised the dead, bigots like Marina Galperina would find in those actions proof that he's an idiot.

So, Marina Galperina's opinion does not count.

2 Greetings:

Aren't "oil-on-broad" paintings part of the "war on women" ???

3 Sheppard Fairey got sued for appropriation of the AP image (and settled). Do you think GW Bush should get sued for appropriation as well?

4 Reminds me once long ago at the Met in NYC I saw a student artist copying a picture, and commented on the odd hues he was using for the flesh. He explained that his instructor said just to do the shape and that human skin tones (getting them realistic) are usually the hardest thing to do.

5 For your amusement :

I forget how many decades ago I found that website.

The captions are fairly amusing, also.
