"Impeach Bush" Ornament to Hang on White House Tree

"Impeach Bush" Ornament to Hang on White House Tree


Santa may still have to decide whether President Bush has been naughty or nice this year, but an artist invited to decorate an ornament for the White House Christmas tree has made up her mind. Deborah Lawrence, a Bush opponent and Seattle artist, decided to whip up some holiday activism and create an "Impeach Bush" ornament.


Through a local art organization, Deborah's Congressman, Jim McDermott, invited her submit his district's ornament. She told the Washington Post that despite feeling sick from the idea of painting a decoration for the Bush White House, she decided it was the perfect opportunity to highlight Rep. McDermott's support of Bush's impeachment. On the ornament she also features her state's 1919 labor strike, suffrage movement, and the 1999 WTO protests. Laura Bush's press secretary said there were no plans to reject the ornament and that Deborah is still invited to a White House reception for the artists.

Do you find Deborah's bold action an example of someone courageously staying true to what she believes, or did Deborah simply forget her manners?
