    No, not the "art" film about assassinating President Bush.

    This morning, a Boston-born performance artist, Yazmany Arboleda, tried to set up a provocative art exhibition in a vacant storefront on West 40th Street in Midtown Manhattan with the title, “The Assassination of Hillary Clinton/The Assassination of Barack Obama,” in neatly stenciled letters on the plate glass windows at street level.

    It's illuminating that we don't have to resort to hypotheticals to see how an "assassinate Bush" art piece would be received.

    Of course. He obviously picked the wrong target(s). The DUmp monkeys will predictably agree with the police action.

    Where does one apply for a "performance-artist" position? I still see an artist as someone who has mastered a craft so well that people will pay money to own and/or experience it. Can this person generate income with his, or her "art" ? I doubt it.
