    My point about left/right is that here in NY we have lots of Anti-Bush/Cheney things all over the city.

    Posters, billboards, murals painted on walls.....it's ok when the right is portrayed as murdered or evil (like the bush's with the forehead bullet holes that are in my subway station)....but apparently you can't do it against figures on the left.
    My impression was that the art was more pro-leftist than anything; that the artist was sympathetic to Obama and Clinton, rather than portraying them as evil:

    Later, Mr. Arboleda, who is 27, said in an interview: “It’s art. It’s not supposed to be harmful. It’s about character assassination — about how Obama and Hillary have been portrayed by the media.
    YMMV, it's not entirely clear, but I didn't get the impression that this was an anti-left exhibit that was being shut down.
    If you reveal your secrets to the wind you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.

    If they arrested him just for being a street performer, I get that. They're almost as bad as mimes!

    I think the face of experience on of Hillary is pretty witty.
