Hillary Bust at The Museum of Sex - too good to let pass

Not much I can add to this other than a picture of her bust, but Blogger is having one of its periodic hissy fit, so I will have to add it later.

Believe me, I would not ever make this up:


Senator Hillary
Clinton’s Presidential Bust To Be Unveiled at the Museum of Sex


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.”...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.”
