Anger as library makes exhibition of Bush
Authors of Iraq war made 'suspects' in New York
Rightwing bloggers cry foul over doctored photos
Ed Pilkington in New York
http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,,2224234,00.html

A series of six black and white prints on display in an unassuming corner of the New York public library have sparked controversy on the airwaves and blogosphere quite out of keeping with the dark, marble-lined corridor in which they are hung.

The prints show the mugshots, in the style of police arrest photographs, of main members of the Bush administration in the first few years of his presidency. There is President Bush himself, scowling into the camera, and a fierce, finger-pointing Dick Cheney.

Each of the "suspects" in Line Up, as the display is called, carry placards bearing a date. The artists, Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese, have chosen the dates to refer to key speeches in which they believe the politicians incriminated themselves in front of the American people.

An audio tape runs beside the prints and plays the speeches as the prints come up in a slide show.

4. Genius in its simplicity
And now that there is "controversy" it will get a lot more attention. Controversy, also called "free publicity". :D
