WHAT THE OBAMAS SHOULD HAVE BORROWED
by Charlie Finch
 
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN (ANDY WARHOL)
He’s the first metrosexual president.

A BASKETBALL HOOP WITH CANDLES (DAVID HAMMONS)
But don't shoot!

VIR HEROICUS SUBLIMIS (BARNETT NEWMAN)
That's Barack, of course.

THE ROSE (JAY DEFEO)
Because the Presidency is a heavy, heavy job.

BARBRA STREISAND PROFILE (DEBORAH KASS)
She was good enough for Bill Clinton.

DICK AND BALLS SCULPTURE (LOUISE BOURGEOIS)
To ream the Republicans.

ANYTHING BY KARA WALKER
Nicely matches the new interest in Michelle's genealogy.

SUNFLOWER (JOAN MITCHELL)
Like Obama, she had a nicotine habit.

GOING BACK IN (STEVE MUMFORD)
Now, it's Afghanistan.

THE SOLAR ANUS (RON ATHEY)
Even the Sun King must sit on the pot.


CHARLIE FINCH is co-author of Most Art Sucks: Five Years of Coagula (Smart Art Press).
