    Photo: Artist depicts Obama wearing crown of thorns

    Yes, it's needlessly provocative/offensive. That's not, however, what I find intersting. After all, everyone expects modern artists to do something like this. But what does it say about our country that this depiction generates such interest, on any level besides the (to me, obvious) level of it being a blasphemous comparison of Obama's sufferings to those of Christ.

    I typically don't link to WorldNetDaily, but if this is of interest to readers they have a treatment posted {update - link fixed. sorry about that!}.
