Well, they can try and censor, but now, we all have the ability to see it on the internet. Censorship by the state can be defeated when there are alternative ways to express. Thanx Al Gore...

Will they come for Dave Reichert too? Please?

I hate to be a killjoy, but this is what the Secret Service is supposed to do. If they think you're encouraging assassination attempts against the people they're protecting, they WILL shut your shit down. It's their job to be somewhat paranoid, and if you give your art installation an inflammatory title you should be prepared to deal with that.

I look forward to the day Dave Reichert is dragged to GITMO for some 24/7 waterboarding for his threats against Clinton and Obama.

The nitwit needs to figure out that it's ART. It means what it means to OTHERS, NOT what he WANTS it to mean.

Maybe some time in jail would teach him that communication is all about the responses you get.

@ 10: How very Seattle of you. If we can't get 100% agreement on an issue, we must do nothing. If a single person is offended by a work of art (or two lesbians kissing at a ballgame) it must be removed immediately. It is because of this forced conformity that something like the "Assassination" exhibit would never happen here.

Ugh...that is some really, really shitty "art". But, as a performance piece about censorship and government control it's...wait, no, it's still shitty.
