Yuletide Bipartisanship

An “impeach Bush” Christmas tree ornament will hang at the White House?

When Laura Bush asked members of Congress to pick local artists to decorate the White House Christmas tree, Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) turned to a local arts organization who assigned the task to Deborah Lawrence. The Seattle-based artist said, “I was at first nauseated, then realized it was an opportunity to highlight Jim McDermott because he’s a hero of mine.” So Lawrence, who frequently combines politics and satire in her work, covered a nine-inch ball “with swirly red and white stripes — and, in tiny glued-on text, salutes the Democratic congressman’s support for a resolution to impeach President Bush.”
