"The image of a hanged black man is a lot more intense than the image of a hanged white woman, for our country and the history of our country."
Some laugh and others just stop and stare...it's a Halloween decoration showing a mannequin dressed as vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hanging by a noose from the roof of a West Hollywood home.
The mannequin is dressed in brunet wig, glasses and a red business suit. Another mannequin dressed as John McCain emerges from a flaming chimney.
Chad Michael Morisette, who lives in the house, told KCBS-TV that drivers and bus passengers have been stopping to snap pictures of the macabre scene.
Morisette says the effigy would be out of bounds at any other time of year, but it's withinthe spirit of Halloween. He tells KCBS "it should be seen as art, and as within the month of October. It's Halloween, it's time to be scary it's time to be spooky.
How "artistic" would it have been to hang a mannequin dressed like Obama or Hillary by a noose? Would liberals have taken it "within the spirit of Halloween?" I would like to think not.
