Hanging in Effigy

Out on the left coast, someone made a "halloween" display consisting of John McCain arising out of a burning chimney, and Sarah Palin being hung in effigy.

Because she is a white woman, this "display" is being called "art". The secret service has investigated, and it was deemed "no threat".

More like no taste.

If however, I was going to make a halloween display on my front lawn, hang Obama from a tree and make Joe Biden emerge from the fireplace (with his hairplugs on fire), I'm sure I would be charged with a hate crime.

UPDATE:Effigies of Barack Obama were hung on the University of Kentucky campus and outside a home in Indiana after authorities said an effigy of Sarah Palin in California was offensive, but not a hate crime.

This is just getting stupid, people.
