The only things I find truly offensive about it are its attempts at being thought provoking

there is a widespread perception that modern art is some sort of put-on, yet the arts need government and private funding to survive. high profile crap like this just reinforces that stereotype.
bamboozled by modern art.
bamboozled by modern art. We didn't land on modern art???modern art landed on us.
What pole did u take?.
How many people bothered to read the artist's statement? http://www.theassassinationofbarackobama.com/TheAssassinationofBarackPR.pdfAlso, I find it so richly ironic to hear the Strut, of all places, argue over the merits of "good" vs. "bad" art and whether it should be funded. Replace "modern art" with "music" and I think people would suddenly be rethinking their position.
