In that spirit, I will now have to point out that our ex-President Bush was the worst president we have ever had and deserves to be in prison for life, along with his henchmen Rumsfeld and Cheney, for lying us into war. The charge: mass homicide. Colin Powell should be serving a sentence too. Lying to the U.N. like that! And then coming around and expecting respectable people to forgive and forget. What a nerve. And Bush should also receive an added sentence for criminal negligence in his treatment of the Hurricane Katrina disaster and should lose all his property and possessions. That would be justice served!
Furthermore, Bush is an absolutely riviting outsider artist. His paintings totally reveal his alienation and lack of affect. I've seen work similar to his among other criminals I've known, such as the prisoners in an art class we had up at Kulani Correctional Facility. There. Come and get me, goons! There's no way you can touch me legally, thanks to Bush appointee Justice Roberts.
More: It occurs to me that we may be seeing a new genre. Retired people often take up painting. Perhaps some of them are really outsider artists. There is (was?) a fashion for faux outsider art by serious artists, but true outsider art is never self-aware or ironic. This kind of art, also, is not like naive art or folk art. I have written about outsider art here. I was wrong in saying that it is "historical," no longer done, and basically European. And since we assign money value to everything, this art will sell because Bush painted it. Think of it. Bush has restored and commodified an entire art genre, now carried forth by American retirees. He really is a world changer.
