How to use creativity to irk the Left and beat them at their own games

Milk vs. MILF

One of my major peeves about conservative art is that so much of it is unsophisticated and kind of hokey.
There's nothing wrong with the Walmart crowd and their enthusiasm for the red, white, and blue. But, in a lot of urban areas that kind of art is not taken seriously. We need to beat them at their own game by bringing more sophisticated, subtle, and less "in-you-face" patriotic art to the masses. So, whatever we do art -wise should be fun and clever. If there are iconic images in your area, use them. Just twist them to suit your purposes. For many years the left has "owned" the art world, so let's turn their "art" against them. -- -- Hillbuzz

Your Say

I hate Thomas Kinkaid. I hate him. I do. Really, really hate him. A lot.

Comrade Red Square at The People's Cube has been working hard at doing just that.


(I just found out that he's going to be speaking in Easton, PA, about an hour away from me, on Friday night. I'm going to try to make it there.)

I'm jealous ricki. This would only be about an hour drive for me too (coal region), if I wasn't stuck in CA for work. Enjoy.

I'm about an hour from Easton, but it might as well be in CA. Enviously awaiting any update you care to post here, rickl.
