I apologize if I can't treat this bust of Hillary Clinton on display at New York's Museum of Sex with the cold-eyed clarity it so obviously deserves. Instead: Bleaaaauuurrrrrrgh.
Please, can't we look at a press release or something?
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- New York, NY- July, 26 2006--- A presidential bust of Hillary Clinton is set to be unveiled at the Museum of Sex on August 9, 2006 at 10 am. Accentuating her sexual power and bolstered by the presidential seal, The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America will be officially open for public viewing on August 9 for a limited six week run.Then why make her look like Dr. Manhattan before all of his skin came back?
Artist Daniel Edwards describes this new sculpture as capturing Clinton "with her head held high, a youthful spirit and a face matured by wisdom. Presented in a low cut gown, her cleavage is on display prominently portraying sexual power which some people still consider too threatening."
