Bush's Rorschach Test

Today's Lesson: Art imitates life, and life, being divinely inspired, returns the favor.

Slate recently ran several columns about the logistics of the First Family's move into the White House next week, including one story on redecorating. In it, they write:
For the Oval Office, George W. Bush chose a painting called A Charge To Keep. He often tells visitors that it depicts Methodist circuit riders—missionaries who spread the Good Word across the Alleghenies in the 19th century. It actually depicts a horse thief fleeing a mob.
How appropriate.
