I guarantee each one of those responders would have laughed their butts off had it been Bush. After the Game of Thrones Bush Head thing, I posted on a message board that although I wasn't offended personally, I understand why people would be, and I know, not just think, that had it been Obama's head there would have been a huge uproar, and it would have been called racist. Most respondents denied that (it's easy to deny you'd do something if you know you'll never have to prove it) and said I needed to get a sense of humor (did they miss the part where I said I personally wasn't offended?). However, a few said they would be upset if it was Obama because "Obama doesn't deserve it. Bush does." And that's...just...I have no words.

Hey, it was A-OK for the National Endowment for the Arts to fund the infamous Andres Serrano "Piss Christ."  Submerging a representation of the Messiah in a jar of excrement and then taking a picture of it is "art," and museums have an obligation to "challenge the public," you see.

But don't dare even think about placing a representation of the Obamessiah in a jar of beer, calling to mind that famous piece of "art" -- because then guys like Michael Moore will get all "wee wee'd up" (in the President's memorable formulation in another context).  Avert your eyes,...
