George W. Bush's painful 9-inch ball

Laura Bush invited members of Congress to ask local artists in their constituencies for help decorating the White House Christmas tree. She probably had some lame Thomas Kincaid hacks in mind. Instead she got a swirly spheroid of hate.

Washington state artist Deborah Lawrence drew visual inspiration from her Congressman, Jim McDermott. In between the candy-apple red stripes on her ornament, Lawrence applied strips of text praising McDermott's support for a resolution to impeach Bush.

To her credit, Laura Bush accepted the ornament and invited the artist to attend a White House reception. Is it a Christmas miracle? Or is it the Xanax talking?
