Assassination Fascination, Pt. 2

Another moron, unhinged liberal who thinks he's an artist:

Artist Michael McDonald, 55, routinely displays art in his front yard. One of his latest pieces is a cardboard representation of President George W. Bush being impaled by a knife.

The cutout shows painted blood running over the president's eyes and down the bridge of his nose.
Here's a picture of the "piece" that was "intended to spark discussion about controversial topics:"

Now that you've seen the "art," I'll quote the opening article of this story:
An Alameda artist got a surprise visit from the U.S. Secret Service last week for displaying artwork some people thought was threatening to the president, NBC11's Jodi Hernandez reported.
Mainstream media bias, anyone?
"The knife is used as a hook, basically to bring you into the piece," McDonald said.

McDonald said the Secret Service grilled him for 90 minutes about his art and his beliefs, Hernandez reported. They also asked him to allow access to his medical records, he said.

McDonald said the federal agents asked if he interpreted his work as a threat against the country's chief executive. He said he didn't.

"They said, 'You've got a knife sitting in the head of the president of the United States,'" McDonald said. "I said, 'No, I got a knife in a piece of cardboard.'"
Here's a poem I wrote:
Someone should kill this idiot, McDonald,
Preferably with a gun.
I don't mean that as a threat, and I hope that as a fellow artist McDonald will understand that. I just want it to spark discussion about controversial artists.
