Of course a depiction of this arrogant snob stepping on the Constitution isn’t quite being embraced by the Obama zombies.
Sales soared for a painting depicting Obama trampling on the Constitution after a story CBS Las Vegasproduced last weekend went viral.
John McNaughton’s “The Forgotten Man” sold in one day “what we would sell in three months.”
The amount of traffic the story generated even crashed his website.
“I hate to think of the sales I lost with the site being down, but I’m pleased that the message got out,” he told CBS Las Vegas.
His webmaster needed to increase the amount of bandwidth for the site four times before it went back up Saturday night.
While sales of the painting went up, McNaughton said he got reactions from a “mixed bag of people” over the story.
“People really loved the painting and some were really angry,” he told CBS Las Vegas. “Our country is really divided and emotions run high on both sides of the aisle.”
Because of the delicate subject matter raised in his art, McNaughton was often accused of racism.
Delicate subject matter because, um, the object of his ire is half black?
“I think racism is a legitimate issue. But I think if you want to speak out against Obama and his policies is one thing, but being called a racist gets tiresome when it has nothing to do with the painting.”
The stormtroopers are sure to make his life miserable.
