America’s Greatest Artist Depicts Obama Burning The Constitution

by Jim Newell

This is unrealisticOur old pal Jon McNaughton, the hero behind such paintings as 2009′s One Nation Under God (The Jesusy-Constitution one) (Don’t forget the Blood Remix!) and 2010′s The Forgotten Man has produced this new masterwork, One Nation Under Socialism, which you can purchase for a mere $345. What does it mean, this work of paintery in which Barack Obama is just stone cold lightin’ the Constitution on fire? Jon McNaughton will answer all of your questions.

McNaughton has provided an actual Answer Sheet to explain the painting. Oh boy!

So there ya go: Pottage and whatever. Buy it NOW!

Someone should paint a picture of me burning a McNaughton painting.

sullivanst March 21, 2012 at 6:36 pm

That's a subject for photography, not brushwork.

Or perhaps video would be better…

Nostrildamus March 21, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Good topic for an investigative kegger.

FraAnima March 21, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Or burning McNaughton…

figuratively speaking, of course.

Fare la Volpe March 21, 2012 at 7:12 pm

With votes!

Negropolis March 21, 2012 at 11:29 pm

I swear, those things you see on my piece of work are surveyor's marks.

sewollef March 22, 2012 at 9:21 am

I saw what you did there…

NYNYNYjr March 21, 2012 at 8:05 pm

And then he would paint a picture of White Jesus burning THAT painting.

Pat_Pending March 21, 2012 at 8:11 pm

And then a Margaret Keane painting of a sad girl burning the White Jesus burning DrunkIrishman burning the McNaughton painting…

tessiee March 21, 2012 at 10:00 pm

At which point Thomas Kincade would arrive and spoil everybody's fun.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 21, 2012 at 10:29 pm

You'd have so much fire and flame at that point, and so much absurdity, that Kincade might be just the man to do it.

Pat_Pending March 22, 2012 at 12:02 am

OOH! But Bob Ross could add some happy little trees!

YasserArraFeck March 22, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Tommy K could piss on it and put the fire out.

Dashboard_Jesus March 22, 2012 at 3:10 am

hey now, I'm not only the Jesus but also a Drunk Irishman (at least right now, @ 3 AM)

FROTHY March 22, 2012 at 4:00 am

Dood, you're even LATER to the party than I am!

Us night owls should start a conversation among ourselves.

starfanglednut March 21, 2012 at 10:55 pm

A picture of you burning a McNaughton painting, of you burning a Mcnaughton painting.

Toomush_Infer March 22, 2012 at 8:51 am

send me a photo…

glamourdammerung March 21, 2012 at 6:27 pm

This "artist" has such a vivid imagination and clear mental illness.

It is a shame that neither seems to make his work any good.

nounverb911 March 21, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Needs more lobotomies.

Paging Nurse Ratched!

FraAnima March 21, 2012 at 7:13 pm

I know, right? His POV might be excused if his work had any power. Instead, it's just mediocre dreck.

dubyatf March 21, 2012 at 7:43 pm

You're not kidding. That doesn't even look like Obama. I thought it was Robert Downey, Jr.
Apparently this McNotanartist character got his artist credentials from the back of a comic book.
Maybe we can all chip in our daily liquor allowance and commission him to paint a picture of George W. using the Constitution to wipe his ass. And yes, by "ass" I mean Dick Cheney.

dubyatf March 21, 2012 at 7:49 pm

I'm so ashamed of myself for posting that last sentence.
Allow me to correct myself: Dick Cheney is not an ass. He's what Bush wiped.
Fixed.

tessiee March 21, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Well, Dick Cheney uses George W. to wipe *his* ass, so it all works out.

Blueb4sunrise March 21, 2012 at 8:16 pm

….chip in our daily liquor allowance …

uhhhhhhhh, no.

dubyatf March 21, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I knew I was treading on sacred ground.
How about if we chip in the kids' college savings? Oh, wait. Same thing.

Dashboard_Jesus March 22, 2012 at 3:17 am

thanks, I just posted that to the moron's FB page (curious to see how long it stays on?)

FROTHY March 22, 2012 at 4:02 am

Why would he even *have* a FB page? It's just another way to let all the hatey-hatey people c'mon over and hate all over his wall.

Fare la Volpe March 22, 2012 at 9:26 am

His haters are his motivators.

Crystal meth, also.

neiltheblaze March 22, 2012 at 7:21 am

Exactly. Look what it did for Van Gogh. Wait – that was syphilis.

Toomush_Infer March 22, 2012 at 8:54 am

I think you mean Gaugain, leaving his mark on Tahiti….

johnnyzhivago March 21, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Jon McNaughton, report to your local Post Office or Amtrak station for immediate boarding on the next FEMA Death Train.

BTWBFDIMHO March 21, 2012 at 10:27 pm

johnnymeatworth March 21, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Hitler too, don't forget….

Chichikovovich March 21, 2012 at 7:03 pm

He could paint an entire apartment in one afternoon. Two coats!

Chet Kincaid March 21, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Goddamn it!

FROTHY March 21, 2012 at 8:51 pm

Something tells me increased funding for the arts might be a good investment. Imagine if that Little Corporal had found a job, any kind of job, maybe hand-lettering sentimental dreck. How much better the world would have been!

Negropolis March 21, 2012 at 11:31 pm

To think, a shitty postcard artist from Austria (Redneck Germany) ends up taking over Europe. You couldn't write shit like this.

Dirt_Dog March 21, 2012 at 6:37 pm

I think you just missed a chance to say "you know who else wanted to be a painter?" and have the answer actually be the short-mustached one for real.

nounverb911 March 21, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Charlie Chaplin?

Chet Kincaid March 21, 2012 at 7:24 pm

RadioStalingrad March 21, 2012 at 7:38 pm

He was a clown too!

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 7:42 pm

And he was a Clown. Two strikes. Well, three, with all those murders and all.

RadioStalingrad March 21, 2012 at 8:08 pm

He was a serial murderer too.

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 8:16 pm

We can never forget these things. Thank goodness we have Michele Bachmann to remind us that "… just like John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa." and she will carry on the tradition: "That's the kind of spirit that I have, too"

I know that I'll sleep better tonight.

DustBowlBlues March 21, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Thanks for the meringue tip. And I need to find trampdirt and thank her or him, or them.

And very big thanks for the ricotta recipe. I had no idea.

See? Some of us thought that when a woman bought "our" wonket that the most potty mouthed and funniest political snark anywhere in the internet tubes would also be a recipe exchange.

Barb March 21, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Just wait until Sara Benincasa comes back and hosts a quilting bee.

FROTHY March 21, 2012 at 8:53 pm

I'd bee happy to be hosted in a quilt with the scrumplicious Ms. Benincasa.

flamingpdog March 21, 2012 at 10:06 pm

HEY, my imaginery girlfriend!!!

OK, you got me back for saying "Hitler" earlier today.

flamingpdog March 21, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Or you could go to Red State and be part of a recipe for disaster exchange.

FROTHY March 21, 2012 at 8:50 pm

About as well, yeah.

Ever see his clown paintings? Pretty bad, but an excellent diagnostic tool. I'd say this guy has some "issues" too.

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Stop it. you're frightening me.

FROTHY March 22, 2012 at 4:21 am

Apparently, you can't even say intreegued! No, that's not a typo or a misspelling, it's an oversensitive scriptbot scripted to catch any mention of Toad's youngest child.

And all I did was call you babycakes and ask what could possibly have frightened you!

C_R_Eature March 22, 2012 at 5:41 am

Stop talking about the Clowns. You know how I get.

And no trying to get around the Script Censor, either. It's there for our own protection.

Sassomatic March 21, 2012 at 6:29 pm

When you burn the Constitution it turns into shit? Or is that santorum. Must be santorum.

tessiee March 21, 2012 at 10:46 pm

"When you burn the Constitution it turns into shit?"

No, when you burn the Constitution, the *country* turns into shit.

FROTHY March 22, 2012 at 4:22 am

For reasons known only to Mel Brooks, I now have that delightful church scene from Blazing Saddles playing in my head with accompanying song, specifically the line: "Our town is turning into shit."

MaxUdargo March 21, 2012 at 11:51 pm

Whatever it is, Evil Obama wants to make sure we notice it.

Evil Obama doesn't sneak up to the Constitution, strike a match and light it, and then quickly dart away, hoping nobody saw him do it. No, Evil Obama grabs the Constitution by the scruff of its preamble, lights it on fire, and then stands there holding the Constitution in your face, staring you straight in the eye while he points at the flames. "Yeah, I did that, mother-fucker. You see what I did? That's your precious Constitution going up in flames right there. Mother-fucker."

Evil Obama doesn't even need a goatee.

Sassomatic March 22, 2012 at 2:43 am

Honey badger don't give a fuck.

FROTHY March 22, 2012 at 4:23 am

I don't think our Hopey *can* grow a goatee. He seems to have very little face-n-body hair.

memzilla March 21, 2012 at 6:30 pm

I'm waiting for the Cthulhu version… again.

CommieLibunatic March 21, 2012 at 7:20 pm

I'm tempted to start making one, myself. Except I don't think I have the genius to match the last one.

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Sorry, Cthulhu eats the Constitution. Or so I've heard. Shhhhhhhh!

FROTHY March 21, 2012 at 8:54 pm

I just nibbled the edges, a little

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Not yet! You have to wait until Nyarlathotep gets here. You know this!

I'd like to see him do a lithograph of Sarah Palin's pants on fire, if you know what I mean.

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 7:43 pm

That one's hanging in her Gynecologist's office.

Loaded_Pants March 21, 2012 at 7:48 pm

That's not a painting. That's a photographic warning to the ladies as to what will happen if they don't take care of their lady-parts.

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 7:52 pm

"Don't let this happen to You!"

On the other wall is a photo of the Duggar family and an ad for Lo-Ovral.

dubyatf March 21, 2012 at 8:44 pm

OT but do you suppose it's mere coincidence that, in the wake of all the forcible rape by transducer legislation recently passed, that I (who have been looking for a job for almost 2 years, and of course, the interwebs know this) should have received an email solicitation from "ultrasoundtechnicianeducation" inviting me to "learn how to be an ultrasound technician" and encouraging me to "get a glimpse into a new life."? And do you suppose the irony in that last sentence is unintentional?
I will have to investigate whether this program is funded by the socialist government and if so start a petition demanding that my tax dollars not be used for the rapey purposes whatsoever, even if it WOULD positively impact the unemployment numbers. Amiright?

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Woah! So, all this Pudendal Probing Legislation is merely a Jobs Program in disguise? Who knew! I just assumed it was the end product of the religious fanaticism that's taken over one of our major political parties over the last 25+ years.
I'll bet there's no Government money in this program, if you look. I think it's funded by some nice Churches and Church organizations, like the Westboro Baptist Church and Operation Rescue.

tessiee March 21, 2012 at 10:13 pm

Right, because the bible thumpers would never take everyone's tax money to further their agendas.

flamingpdog March 21, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Oh thanks, Barb, I just had a mental image of Sarah Pee in hot pants.

Oh, never mind, personal responsibility and all that – obviously a product of my own brain damage.

C_R_Eature March 21, 2012 at 10:20 pm

STOP THAT IT'S DISGUSTING

Sassomatic March 21, 2012 at 6:30 pm

CommieLibunatic March 21, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Oh, for fuck's sake.

AbandonHope March 21, 2012 at 6:36 pm

You know, that's basically my response too… I can't drum up any snark here.

Edit: …Yet.

dubyatf March 21, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Or, in Santorum Speak, procreation: The ONLY thing that can sake a fuck.

memzilla March 21, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Say, you know which other right-wing nutjob was also a failed painter… ?

user-of-owls March 21, 2012 at 6:36 pm

Joe was a 'plumber,' not a 'painter.' Easy mistake.

FROTHY March 21, 2012 at 8:54 pm

You must not have kids. They ALL start out by fingerpainting with their own shit.

Fare la Volpe March 22, 2012 at 9:56 am

Are you a step-padre, or do you have brats darling angels of your own?

Leonardo da Vinci?

Negropolis March 21, 2012 at 11:34 pm

Yeah, but he liked the boys, so he doesn't count. Plus, he was sciency and shit.

Antispandex March 21, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Um…..one of the Nixons, maybe?

dadanarchist March 21, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Glenn Beck was a failed finger painter.

Loaded_Pants March 21, 2012 at 7:05 pm

That wasn't finger paint he used.

dubyatf March 21, 2012 at 7:55 pm

Begging your pardon, but that wasn't his FINGER he used.

Loaded_Pants March 21, 2012 at 8:06 pm

That would explain why the strokes were so small.

dadanarchist March 21, 2012 at 8:00 pm

poop

FROTHY March 21, 2012 at 8:55 pm

RadioStalingrad March 21, 2012 at 10:58 pm

Or he cut off his right wing.

BaldarTFlagass March 21, 2012 at 7:18 pm

George W Bush? Oh wait, coloring books don't count, do they?

YasserArraFeck March 22, 2012 at 4:04 pm

coloring inside the lines is good, but it hardly counts as painting, except maybe in the Thomas Kinkade school

glamourdammerung March 21, 2012 at 7:37 pm

This guy is a painter?!?!

FROTHY March 21, 2012 at 8:56 pm

No, no, it's a misspelling. He's a POINTER. See? He's got some strange man in a pitcher POINTING at something.

Loaded_Pants March 21, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Then Romney's your 'bot!

tessiee March 21, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Or a musician with fingers of steel, for bluegrass guitar, banjo pickin' and such.

user-of-owls March 21, 2012 at 6:33 pm

I bet it makes a lot more sense after a mess of pottage.

DustBowlBlues March 21, 2012 at 8:06 pm

Do you like the way he drops a reference he thinks shows he's smart?

sullivanst March 21, 2012 at 8:17 pm

It's not to show he's smart, it's to rope in the talibangelical rubes. Yes, it really is that easy to do.

Spurning Beer March 21, 2012 at 10:19 pm

If he really were smart, he would discuss the semiotics of political discourse, and refer to a "pot of message."

johnnyzhivago March 21, 2012 at 6:33 pm

McNaughton is so right about gubbermint intervention. When GOD sends his whirly death funnels to the midwest thousands of souls end up unjustly escaping because of the socialist Weather Service Tornado Warning entitlement program.

AbandonHope March 21, 2012 at 6:46 pm

I really want to see a "Whirly Death Funnel Warning" appear on the screen now.

Chet Kincaid March 21, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Is that a warning for funnel cakes at the State Fair?

Gleem McShineys March 21, 2012 at 8:38 pm

IF THAT DAMN MICHELE OBAMA GETS HER WAY!

FROTHY March 21, 2012 at 8:58 pm

Negropolis March 21, 2012 at 11:36 pm

If not, they should definitely come with warnings: May make your ass explode.

FROTHY March 22, 2012 at 4:35 am

Shouldn't that be "ASSplode"? In the interest of, you know, accuracy and shit.

PubOption March 21, 2012 at 7:31 pm

He might think that the government was starting to get the message. Illinois has been refused FEMA aid to cover the recent tornado damage.

DustBowlBlues March 21, 2012 at 8:08 pm

WTF? The dumb okies who don't believe in the government doing anything but protecting their gun rights have gotten boat loads of tornado damage.

Wilcoxyz March 21, 2012 at 6:33 pm

Can't believe Thomas Kinkade didn't beat him to it.

Guppy March 21, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Not enough light!!! when your president is blah.

tessiee March 21, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Probably because he got stuck on a long line at the 7-11 while trying to buy PBR and the latest issue of "Gigantic Asses".

Yeah, but can he do it on an Etch a Sketch?

dubyatf March 21, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Etch-a-Sketchers do it exclusively with the opposite sex. They're SOOO straight.

flamingpdog March 21, 2012 at 10:16 pm

Uh, from the looks of his latest painting, I think he'd be more likely to use a Retch a Sketch.

FROTHY March 22, 2012 at 4:36 am

You forgot the Dubyuh.

outragedcitizen March 23, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Probably not, but that stage hand from the old "Friends" series could.

Callyson March 21, 2012 at 6:35 pm

"Our federal government has been moving in the direction of socialism for over one hundred years"
Roughly coinciding with the rise of the US as a great power…
What was the problem again?

CommieLibunatic March 21, 2012 at 7:09 pm

My question is "Why did he wait until a blah person took the presidency to get upset if it's actually taken that long? HEHHHHNGG?"

Chet Kincaid March 21, 2012 at 7:29 pm

Exactement!

Loaded_Pants March 21, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Where was the great American artist Jon McNaughton back in 1910?

dubyatf March 22, 2012 at 1:53 am

HEHHHHNGG is my new favorite word! Omg, you are AWESOME. And I mean that in spite of the fact that I just hehhhhngged the mucousy contents of my nasal passages all over my iPad.

True … some perfectly good paint went into that thing.

Slim_Pickins March 21, 2012 at 9:55 pm

McNaughton uses only lead-based paints because its socialist to use lead free.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 21, 2012 at 10:33 pm

Can you picture (so to speak) this wingnut being forced to put EPA and CPSC warning stickers on his canvases?

nobodyssweetheart March 21, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Bammers is putting his finger right up into the flames and then pulling it away at the last second, going "fffffttt…. hothothothot."

EmileZoloft March 21, 2012 at 8:54 pm

No way, he's going Full Liddy on that fire.

evan7257 March 21, 2012 at 6:35 pm

I sure hope the president doesn't hurt his hands from the fire. Fire hot!

anniegetyerfun March 21, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Satan isn't bothered by flame; flame is bothered by Satan. Sort of like Chuck Norris.

Wait a sec… has anyone ever seen Chuck Norris and Satan together, in the same place?

Fare la Volpe March 21, 2012 at 7:15 pm

One of them's not real, and the other one is Satan.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 21, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Well, doh.

Antispandex March 21, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Hot damn! (pun intended) I have been wondering what to get the in-laws for Jesus' birthday next year! I hope they don't think he is just trying to get someone to put the fire out. That would totally spoil it!

johnnyzhivago March 21, 2012 at 6:36 pm

The part about separation of Church and State is crayoned over in that rendition.

Oh for fucks sake. Fucking enough already.

slowhansolo March 21, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Hey, now, speak for yourself!

sewollef March 22, 2012 at 9:28 am

Whoa…. "Oh for fucks sake. Fucking enough already."

Speaking personally, I know I haven't fucked anything like enough.

Maman March 21, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Shouldn't there be scary music too?

BaldarTFlagass March 21, 2012 at 6:51 pm

Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor. You know, like in the original Rollerball.

That could work, too.

tessiee March 21, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Is there some kind of music that's simultaneously rap AND heavy metal?
If not, this ought to do very nicely:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE-rD8vcY4U

FYI, for those who enjoy this sort of thing, go to youtube and type "Requiem for a Dream Nicolas Cage". Four minutes of Nicolas Cage losing his shit montage.

Chet Kincaid March 22, 2012 at 12:24 am

Rap metal came and went 20 years ago.

BTWBFDIMHO March 21, 2012 at 10:30 pm

Any Meatloaf song?

Well, yes. Unfortunately, though (and by "unfortunately" I mean "THANK YEW JEEZUS"), Celine Dion is recovering from vocal cord surgery.

A little pity for the guy, eh? No matter where he goes in the room, Barry's eyes are always following him, following him, following him…

dubyatf March 22, 2012 at 2:13 am

I was going to belittle you for implying that one is to be pitied if Barry's eyes followed one around the room, because I, for one, would be pleased as punch to labor under such a happy delsuion. Then I remembered that the guy in this picture resembles Obama about as much as the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary resembles sanity. So never mind.

I will admit it is one of the better black velvet paintings I've seen.

Yeah, fairly decent brush technique for being as utterly shitfaced on Black Velvet like McNaughton gets.

JackDempsey1 March 21, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Did Barack light the Constitution on fire? Because then it could just be an accident, he was smoking, dropped a match, etc.
Or did he just touch it, and it spontaneously combusted?

AbandonHope March 21, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Nothing about this painting suggests that Obama started the fire. In fact, Obama looks like he's pointing at the fire with the look of a really pissed-off parent, and saying, "Here, see this? This is fire. Did you do this, George? Did you? Do you have any idea how long this is going to take me to clean up!? That's it, you're grounded. Go to your state and clear brush. And I don't want to see you hanging out with those delinquents Willard, Ricky and Newton ever again.

Good point, Abandon.

Or like Patton Oswalt put it, jumped over the Bill of Rights with Dick Cheney in the General Lee on a weekly basis.

glamourdammerung March 21, 2012 at 7:40 pm

The caption should be, 'where the fuck were you when your precious Dubya and his cronies were wiping their asses with this?"

Not sure he has the artistry to paint telling people that had valid disagreements with the Bush regime to "go move to France" in between impotent threats.

UW8316154 March 21, 2012 at 11:20 pm

Maybe he could just notate it with explanatory comments, like he did with the other ones.

dubyatf March 22, 2012 at 2:26 am

Maybe he could paint Bush holding a container of Freedom Fries in one hand and a bottle of Viagra in the other while Cheney, in the background, dips his pen in the bloodied open leg wound of an American soldier in order to sign the Halliburton contract that made him even more rich? No?

FROTHY March 22, 2012 at 5:16 am

I can certainly see Thomas Kinkade's influence on McNaughton.

Next in the series is a nostalgic piece featuring Hillary Clinton urinating on a bible, future subjects will include Michelle force feeding arrugula to a crying child, and a special portrait of the president paying the forger for his birth certificate. Other series include "Jew Bankers that took us off the gold standard", "Joseph McCarthy walking on water", and a quite popular series: "The Affairs of Martin Luther King", featuring the civil rights leader in compromising vignettes with various heroines of the left. The Artists' early works focused on variations on an Elvis theme with airbrush on imitation velvet.

That would require McNaughton to know something about art beyond what he learned from his Malen nach Zahlen kit.

DonnyKerabotsos March 21, 2012 at 6:48 pm

As I always ask when offered the opportunity to acquire 'fine art:'

Can it be acquired on velvet?

And what is pottage? Is that some measure of the potency of marijuana? Like wattage for electricity?

The answer sheet doesn't seem to cover this.

sullivanst March 21, 2012 at 6:52 pm

I don't know what pottage is, but it sure sounds French to me. Soup-eating slander-monkey, that McNaughton!

You gotta keep your wits about you or they'll imply mind control and brainwash on you by controlling grammar, also too.

You'd probably not even go into the house, being warned away by the fetus jars on the window sills and the confederate flags hanging on the doghouse.

His Twitter profile says "If my paintings cause one to think and feel something…then it is successful."

Well, they cause me to think he is a reactionary loon. And they make me feel, well, it's kind of a mix of pity and bewilderment. So, bravo, good sir.

dubyatf March 21, 2012 at 8:11 pm

His paintings cause me to think and feel that the artist probably lost his virginity to a sock puppet, whereas his prose makes me think and feel that it's small wonder he's an artist.
Maybe I'm shamelessly flaunting my elitist bent but gee dammit, NOUN AGREEMENT ain't rocket surgery.

flamingpdog March 21, 2012 at 10:48 pm

But wait, he's only half a Negro. But then, up until they rescinded the law in 1982 (!), in Louisiana, you were legally a Negro if you were genetically 1/16 a Negro. So, let's see … math … Obama is actually a minimum of eight Negros! But then under the Constitution (King Newt UnRevised Version), the 8-Negro President is only 4.8 people, which still makes it crowded at times in the Oval Orifice.

NOTE: I did these mathematicular calcumalations without benefit of a single drop of alcohol. Also with benefit of math.

That's a copy of the original constitution, right? The one that said it was A-OK that people with his skin color could be bought and sold as chattel, and even, through the 3/5 clause, gave disproportionate political power to the drivers of men? The one that (according to Chief Justice Taney) precluded people like Obama from even becoming citizens?

Well, no wonder he's burning the thing! The new one is way better.

That's precisely why William Lloyd Garrison, the great abolitionist, burned a copy of the US Constitution before the Civil War.

Hmmm, going towards horrible 'socialism' for 100 years and it didn't become evident until we had a black President.

Here's a suggestion for McNaughton: paint the Edmund Pettus Bridge as it was on Sunday, March 7, 1965. That's an actual example of 'We the People' demanding the rights the Constitution is supposed to provide.

Tundra Grifter March 21, 2012 at 7:43 pm

I think McNaughton's work ranks up there with the finest paintings by Rafael, Michelangelo, Leonardo,or Donatello.

Of course, it's hard as heck to paint a decent work of art when you've got stubby little green arms and a giant hardback shell.

Tundra Grifter March 21, 2012 at 7:46 pm

There is another way to look at this work of art.

Well, work of Jon.

Mr. Obama is holding the US Constitution left by President George Bush and his minions on January 20, 2008. And our President is not the least bit happy about it.

To me, it looks like Obama did not light the Constitution on fire, but is merely pointing out that it is on fire, which is a good thing to do.

To save money, the guv'ment want to close it all but 2 days a week so these idiot rural Republithugs might have to drive an extra 20 or 30 minutes to pick up their federal handouts. Needless to say, the local deficit hawks got their Carharts in twist and passed around petitions to keep the place open 5 days a week.

"Those who are familiar with my work know I like to use symbolism and metaphor to engage the viewer."

Fukui-sanYesOta March 21, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Look, it's got chains! That's deep, man.

Also a chicken for some reason.

Chichikovovich March 21, 2012 at 9:24 pm

According to his helpful annotations, that's a rooster, because something, something Peter denied Jesus three times before the cock crowed something something.

I have to hand it to M'Naughton for this whole "hammer the metaphors home" thing. Primo idea. Van Gogh didn't have the internet and pointers, or otherwise he would have posted a .jpg of "Cornfield with Crows", and if you put the pointer over the road it would say "This road ends partway through the cornfield because it is life" and on the crows "I chose crows because they make people think of death. And also of that Poe guy who talks about death all the time."
The whole artistic experience would be way better with something like that.

Also I've always thought the duck rabbit picture would be better if somebody had drawn some tiny webbed feet and feathers, make it a bit clearer what it is.

Fukui-sanYesOta March 21, 2012 at 10:55 pm

It's only art if you have to explain the already painfully obvious allegorical meaning in your daubs.

As Mondrian said: "It's a load of fucking lines and colours and that, innit"

MilwaukeeKent March 21, 2012 at 9:29 pm

The chicken's the only one not in chains, besides the Prez. I think McNaughton is advocating free-range chickens, probably as one of the "six keys" (to free us from debt) symbolically hidden in the painting.

his target audience…
and-uh…
OK, then.

DerrickWildcat March 21, 2012 at 10:41 pm

I think the description was very helpful. It's like when the paper or the news station shows a picture of a cat when they have some kind of a story about a cat thing for people that not be familiar with what a cat looks like.

He's not wrong. We have become more socialist, because as a community we agree that there are some things we will not do. We will not see chlldren starve, veterans die in the streets, generations of uneducated children.

It is also true that the encroachment on our civil liberties and privacy and a host of other things is constant and we get it from all sides.

But, it's pretty damn stunty of him to use President Obama in this manner and incrediably infammatory and irresponsible and a very very disingenous and dishonest portrayal. President Obama is hardly the worst offender. All administrations and all legislative branches and all governments in all the lands since the beginning of time do this.

Mr. McNaughton:

If you are perchance available for commissioned work, I would pay handsomely for an Obama hitting the Statue Of Liberty from behind.

This is treason.

Man0nTheStreet March 22, 2012 at 2:41 am

Teabaggers *wish* it was Potent enough or Important enough to rise to the level of Treason; however, it's just a different media-format of the same-ol' scrawled, illogical end-of-america-communist-UN-negros-are-coming-to-kill-us paranoid mutterings/leaflets of nutjob street-preachers.

MadBrahms March 22, 2012 at 2:28 am

This is the first in a series. In the paintings to follow, Obama will burn the Declaration of Independence, the Magna Carta, the Bible, and of course The Birth Certificate.

These are the same fucks who think Föx is soft on Communism. e.g.:

If there is an election! You forget that he has us under Martial Law right now, which postpones any and all elections indefinitely. Executive Orders do not get ratified by Congress; in fact Congress has no say one way or the other. So technically he has already bypassed the elective process. Be warned, America, we are seeing the beginning of the Communist reign of terror. Make no mistake about it.

Stay armed and ready… Lets hope our Military and Police forces love the free America more than taken orders form a dictator/ Marxist!!!!

C_R_Eature March 22, 2012 at 5:17 am

there are UN troops stationed throughout the US and they will be the ones as well as his "civilian army".

Awshit, Doc..they're onto us! Now we'll have to move up the timeline. Those camps are nowhere near ready – not all of the Immobilization and Reeducation Theaters have fully tested brainwave generators. Ah, well, you go to war with the camps you have, not the ones you wish you have…

McNaughton is to fine art what Mallard Fillmore is to comics.

Barry didn't burn it. He is holding it while yelling:

"Look bastards, THIS is what happened when you elected a Texas village idiot as president you chump."

Man0nTheStreet March 22, 2012 at 3:28 am

I just remembered that I know a 94 year-old Faux-watcher who passes her time with paint-by-numbers things that she then proudly displays to guests…. she'd lurve THIS piece o' crap! Does McNaughton sell paint-by-number sets, or is that too challenging and sophisticated for his intended audience?

That's just Day 1 of Constitution Law 101 at Univ. of Chicago Law School. By the end of the semester there is flag burning, sharia-compliant lesson plans and mandatory student participation in Hezbollah rallies.

Looked at this piece of shit again: Is he really saying: "Who's the N*****r now, white boy?….'cause it looks like it…

What I like best about this artist is his subtlety. Really makes the viewer think, you know?

elburritodeluxe March 22, 2012 at 9:10 am

Thank God its still just burning the boring parts down the bottom. Quick, put it out before it gets to 'promote the general welfare'!

Remember the make-believe art schools that used to advertise on match book covers "If you can draw this this you can become an artist!"

If he really wanted to make Obama look threatening, he should have put him in a hoodie.

I think I see what's going on here. Bush decided to prank Obama, fashioned a sack out of the Constitution, filled it with Bo dung, and lit it on fire on the White House doorstep. Obama is all scowly as he hears Bush's muffled giggles off in the dark.

Nesnora March 22, 2012 at 10:39 am

I take it as: "Really? Really? You fuckshits set the constitution on fire with the Patriot Act and now you want me to stand here and put it out while blaming me for setting it on fire in the first place?! And I'M the asshole…"

Sure, it's art. But it's no Mallard Fillmore.

portermelmoth March 28, 2012 at 7:47 pm

President B. H. Obama DID NOT START THAT FIRE. He is simply being presidential in solemnly showing that indeed, the document he holds (which I think is only the Preamble) is aflame, and WILL SOMEONE NOT HELP HIM before his fingers are fried? Somebody, please, HELP HIM!

But it’s not really that big a deal. After all, Moses busted up the 10 Commandments. From God hisself. We can get another copy, people.

barto April 9, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Did ya notice Rick's holdin' that bible the same way Nobama's holdin' the burning constiturion in the McNaughty fin art? Burn, bible, burn!

Wait, I know there's Wonketteers who don't drink, they probably have monies.

We spend it on hookers instead.

Or so I've heard.

Toomush_Infer March 22, 2012 at 8:53 am

Nope, sorry….and I barfed on my last hooker (in lieu of payment), so I'm kind of down to the streetwalker type, the type Livingrock or whatever his name was, warned us about…

It's all true because, RELIJUS FREEDUMB. It's in the Constitushun. The Man in the Brown Suit said so on Teevee, so it must be true. I just wrote him a nice check out of Junior's College money.
