Senator Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Bust To Be Unveiled at the Museum of Sex
National Review ^ | July 26, 2006 | Kathryn Jean Lopez

Posted on 07/26/2006 10:26:09 AM PDT by dangus

(If you're thinking what you're thinking is just a joke; you might be horrified to know that any play on words in the original title is intentional.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- New York, NY- July, 26 2006—- A presidential bust of Hillary Clinton is set to be unveiled at the Museum of Sex on August 9, 2006 at 10 am. Accentuating her sexual power and bolstered by the presidential seal, The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America will be officially open for public viewing on August 9 for a limited six week run.

Artist Daniel Edwards describes this new sculpture as capturing Clinton “with her head held high, a youthful spirit and a face matured by wisdom. Presented in a low cut gown, her cleavage is on display prominently portraying sexual power which some people still consider too threatening.”...

Artist Daniel Edwards describes this new sculpture as capturing Clinton “with her head held high, a youthful spirit and a face matured by wisdom. Presented in a low cut gown, her cleavage is on display prominently portraying sexual power which some people still consider too threatening.”...

...Edwards’ inspiration for the piece was derived from actress Sharon Stone’s controversial quote earlier in the year about challenges that would most likely be encountered should the Junior Senator from New York run on the ’08 ticket. “I think Hillary Clinton is fantastic,” Stone said. “But I think it is too soon for her to run. This may sound odd but a woman should be past her sexuality when she runs. Hillary still has sexual power and I don’t think people will accept that. It’s too threatening.”

“Displaying a sculpture to encourage discourse about the sexual power debate surrounding the possibility of a Hillary Clinton presidency is very much in line with our mission as a museum,” noted Daniel Gluck, Executive Director. “We are wholly dedicated to the exploration of the history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality. Historically, leaders are often expected to possess an exceptional amount of virility or fertility with displays of that sexual power often tied to their success. The artist’s portrayal of Hillary Clinton as a president who also happens to be a sexual being conveys the message that a woman need not squelch her sexuality in order to succeed as leader of the free world.”

Someone at NR noted she looked like Jimmy Carter. I agree.

A museum of sex? Why on earth would we even need one of those? Any decent person would never allow their image to be placed in a place like that.

Thought it was Peace Mother Sheehan following her "fast" but then realized the breasts were still located above the naval.

No arms--she can't heave any "presidential" lamps at him.

"Artist Daniel Edwards describes this new sculpture as capturing Clinton 'with her head held high, a youthful spirit and a face matured by wisdom.'"
Ohhhh; is THAT what they now call facial wrinkles....? "a face matured by wisdom...."...? I think this has got to be one of the ugliest pieces of "art" I have ever seen...! No wonder "Slick Willie" strayed from the nest...

Each paragraph more barf producing than the last. The author ended where he did because he carefully matched the word count with the alimentary volume of the average adult male.

Now I have to do a little home electroshock therapy to make me forget that I ever saw that statue. < shudder! >

Wasn't it implied in the words "Hillary Clinton’s ... Bust ... Sex"

Do you also need a "Do not pet the kitties!" sign at the tiger cage at the zoo?

ESPECIALLY if you are a Clinton of any sex...and any sex is the key phrase here... ESPECIALLY if you are a Clinton.

I've heard that a great scultor can get past the skin and expose the soul of his subject... which in Hillary's case is uglier than the skin.

...now, now......... let's not be so unfair to the back end of a horse..... in any cross between "Mother Sheehan" and a horse's hind quarters, the latter would only improve the looks of the former........!!
