10 Ways of Looking at John McCain: DADT Filibuster Art Therapy Special

We had a lot of feelings today when that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell shit happened and we thought the best way to express these feelings was through art. The power of art is a powerful power, just like the power of assholes. Namely, John McCain. And his bullshit. He’s got a lot of power going on there.

In this photograph, John McCain is giving what is known to be a ‘shit-eating grin’ but without showing his teeth. That’s how the ancients do it.

So everyone from the team was invited to demolish a photograph of John McCain. We might be adding to this post as we acquire late submissions. Look forward to that.

    Just amazing.

    I was going to say can this be followed up by a pop-psych analysis of “what your McCain graffiti says about you” but I think that’s all pretty obvious.

    I think my version would have General Gaga, with 6 million troopers behind her, quietly informing McCain that his time is short.

    Also, does this mean Taylor is back? Autostraddle seems weirdly out of balance without the technofixes.

    My favorite is Robin’s. AMAZING!

    Also did I totally have that “The Kiss” poster in college? MAYBE BUT ONLY BECAUSE MY SLIGHTLY CLUELESS BUT WELL MEANING FRIEND BOUGHT IT FOR ME

    Thank you for some much-needed levity in a really frustrating time. Also, what’s up with the sarahbanners at the top o the site? Are we supposed to practice making our art projects on that one?

    So McCain is what I imagine my father to look like in another 27 years- creepy old guy who looks remarkedly like a primate. For real. And I’m at a toss for who I’d like to throw sharp pointy steel tips at. I think I’m gonna create a dartboard with both their faces on it.
