Churchill also drank

I was not going to post on the hacking of the Bush email account, but it has been pushed in my face by none other than the vanity press of Bill Kristol's son-in-law, so fuck it.

The paintings demonstrate a command of line and color that is rarely seen in the modern-day “art” world. Former President George W. Bush appears to be influenced by such painters as Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet. The portraits also clearly capture the personality of their subject.

 Winston Churchill also painted.
As Charlie Pierce writes, "It's the Churchill line that makes it art. Truly."

And, by the way, for those of you keeping score at home, the snowpocalypse dumped about 14 inches here, we suffered no loss of power, and the snow plow guy did get here by 3:30 this afternoon...early enough to get out to bolster the dangerously dwindling bourbon supply.
