Rep. Jim McDermott wrangled an invitation for a local artist in his district of Washington State to create an ornament for the White House Tree. The liberal artist, Deborah Lawrence chose to make a mockery of this honor by creating an insult to STANDING President George Bush. Being asked to create an ornament includes an invitation to the White House which Ms.Lawrence received and said it nauseated her. But later decided to attend.
Upon further reflection it has been decided to not use her offering which has little strips of typed text arranged in glued on swirls saying that President Bush should be impeached. In addition to the insulting message, it looks really amateurish to me and unprofessional.
You can read more about it at these two links. I hope you will leave a comment at the Columbian.
