The Bush Administrativity. This quirky and funny design works on a several levels: It symbolizes the Bush Administration's coziness with the Religious Right, but on a more sophisticated level it appeals to the ironies and incongruities inherent in the Bush Administration in particular and the Republican Party in general. For example, the irony of Rev. Ted Haggard as the angel looking to the Sam Harris, self-proclaimed atheist, Star of David offers an ironic twist. The wise men come bearing contemporary gifts. The recently released Don Rumsfeld reappears as the donkey. Bill O'Reilly is the shepherd protecting the flock against the "War on Christmas." And in the center of it all is a very unhappy someone. Materials: Cutouts of various persons of political import, Sunday School nativity scene cutouts, pipe cleaners and a paper sack.
