the fuck?



I appreciate these guys trying to come up with an appropriate Obama bumper sticker for all 50 states, but this is not it! For one thing, they make them both look kind of pissed off. For another, deconstructing the iconography intended by Wood with the Obamas mixed in gets pretty weird.

Or maybe it's just me. I read everything I could find on the Internet about Grant Wood a couple years ago, and believe me he was not the cheerful rustic people imagine.
