White House Impeaches an Ornament
Posted on Dec 2, 2008
When Laura Bush oversaw the White House’s Christmas tree decorations, she failed to notice a shiny red-and-white ornament with the message “Impeach Bush.” The orb has since been removed, but the artist who created it still got to party with the Bushes.
Seattle, take a bow. Seattle’s Deborah Lawrence collaged a stream of political protest messages into her swirly red-and-white patterns. Most prominent among them is the imperative to Impeach Bush.
It hung on the tree along with ornaments featuring lovingly painted state seals and state scenery till the Washington Post pointed out that it differed substantially from its fellows.
