Please sign Quincy Jones' petition to have Obama create a Secretary of the Arts position in his cabinet.

...but shouldn't we call it Art Tsar? Who wouldn't want to be the Art Tsar?

Terrific interview on Carson Daily last night.

It's interesting to note that the US and Germany are the only countries in the UN that don't have a position like that.

Well, Germany has Hasselhoff, so he pretty much does that job, gratis.

I know it's OT, but I'd like to see a Secretary of Peace first.

Just what I need. Another rich liberal telling me I don't fork enough money into the arts. And doing it on my dime to boot.

Well, my dimes have apparently been paying for people to be imprisoned without trial or due process, and tortured to boot...so turnabout is fair play I guess.

I'm pretty sure I spent a few dimes so that AIG execs could have some lavish parties too. But art and peace, that's just too expensive and wasteful. FUCK!

I'm talking about the 20% who are so blinded by their ideology that that they still support the party line and deny that as a result of this "war", people have been "imprisoned without trial or due process, and tortured". I'm from a very, very dark red part of the country. And, even here, most Republicans I meet (even the really kooky ones who think that Bill Clinton had people murdered) will acknowledge obvious things like this.
