Mitt's Georgia O'Keefe

"Jack-in-the-Pulpit IV." My Mitt's art gallery series is mildly amusing, but pointed in its one point. A couple of conservatives I know take the bait. Why, I don't know.   They react like I'm terribly unfair.  I'm not taking words out of context or manipulating statistics.  Something effective here.

Effective it is. Even I am struck by the proportion of meaning that your posted images have. Art is my religion, and you have created a message that says to me, there are people who are repulsed by what I believe to be the true source of truth and beauty in our global lives. Your gallery is an extended metaphor for our political landscape and small-mindedness. Your gallery makes me think, and feel the meaning behind what I believe in. I think this is why some people might be offended by. Thinking and feeling on a gut level is alien and repugnant and perhaps even impossible for some.
Inspired by an account of Mitt's two years in France as a Mormon missionary,
