Oh, please, Ocean. You know better than that. For conservatives of the type who start howling about art exhibits, the only question is "could this somehow be construed as anti-{American|Christian|white} and therefore, can we get {mileage|media exposure|a fundraising bump} out of it?

There is nothing, literally nothing, that some Barcalounger lounger will not consider in terms of "if I make enough of a stink about this, will I feel like I'm winning in the culture wars?"

I suppose, from what you go on to say, that you meant your question to be a rhetorical one. If so, I apologize. In my own defense, I plead having read some of the comments that preceded yours.
