My previous post stands as a general matter, but I pass along something I noticed by happenstance while throwing out old magazines.
My May 21, 2007 issue of the quality journal, "The Nation," has a full-page, full-color illustration by one Lynn Randolph titled "Scenes from Hell."
It literally "demonizes" Pres. Bush and members of his administration (Cheney and Rumsfeld are recognizable -- others may be Rice, Rove, Gonzales, etc).
Bush is blood-spangled, riding a "hound of hell" -- others have tails, red skin, cloven hooves, are impaling and killing innocents, etc.
Obviously designed to be "hip-ironic" references to Brueghel!
Here's the link, under the heading "Fine Art"
