Special thanks to the eagle eyes at Wonkette, who’ve spotted a big one.
Extraordinarily cheezeball artist Jon McNaughton has brought forth a gathering of greats, as the ghosts of presidents past hover around sullen, stand-offish looking Barack Obama, variously annoyed or aghast at his literal TRAMPLING ON THE CONSTITUTION!
McNaughton is the kind of crank who rambles along in incoherent Founderspeak for numbered paragraphs, passive aggressively concluding:
Cramming all these figures into the frame seems to have skewed McNaughton’s perspective. Small but perfectly formed James Madison is so upset at Obama’s boot-heel to our liberties that he’s bent over pleading, but appears to be almost Obama’s height. The Forgotten Man is a giant seated on a toy town bench. Such is the occasion that Franklin Roosevelt walks.
McNaughton’s painting doesn’t leave much to chance, featuring ominous clouds, flags at half staff, and an accompanying video lush with piano chords of doom.
Meet Mike Crapo. He’s Idaho’s “other” senator, the one who isn’t Larry Craig.
Crapo & Some Guy
Mike wants you to visit our nation’s capitol, but for a guy from the Rocky Mountain West he seems awfully interested in steering you to Confederate tourist spots.
Crapo’s “Silver Mouse Award” winning Senate website alerts interested visitors that the capitol area is alive with history, mostly in the form of dead white men’s houses.
“Four of the first five U.S. presidents made Virginia their home. Within a few hours’ drive of Washington, DC, you can visit several homes and sites that were significant in the lives of George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and other founding Fathers. You will find information below on Presidential homes as well as other historic homes that may be of interest.”
Fox News has rushed to embrace all things Founding Father-ish, proudly affirming it’s own targeting alongside the great dead whites by beloved Chicago minister Jeremiah Wright.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Wright’s speech at a weekend funeral, and it was noteworthy for stating the smokin’ hot non-controversial obvious.
“… while Wright made no mention of terrorism, he did revisit the topic of America’s mistreatment of blacks, saying America’s founding fathers “planted slavery and white supremacy in the DNA of this republic,” and adding that Thomas Jefferson wrote, “ ‘God would punish America for the sin of slavery.’ I guess that makes Thomas Jefferson unpatriotic,” he said to the cheers of the congregation.”
“Rev. Jeremiah Wright told a congregation in Norfolk, Va., on Sunday that reporters sneaked into a private funeral service a day before, in which he blasted America’s founding fathers for slavery and white supremacy and received standing ovations for attacking FOX News for covering his anti-American sermons.”
The Richmond Virginia Chamber of Commerce says the town needs a vision, and one key to putting it all together is …..brace yourself….A PRESIDENTIAL MUSEUM!
Sadly, Richmond At The Crossroads is silent on exactly which president[s] to museum- ize.
“Make increasing tourism a major priority by  developing the James River, 
building a presidential museum and monument to religious freedom, and 
enhancing the convention center with surrounding night life and public safety.”
