Naked Man Fails to Show at Hillary Clinton Fundraiser

Clintontaylorwood

Photographer Sam Taylor-Wood's "Soliloquy VII" was conspicuously absent from the wall at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton at the home of "elite Democrats" Tony and Heather Podesta, the Washington Post reports:

"The huge photograph of the nude man was missing from its usual spot on the living room wall, and some guests concluded that politically correct Clintonites had demanded that the naked guy disappear. ... 'It's an iconic photograph in political fundraising circles,' Tony Podesta told us yesterday. The $250,000 picture made quite a backdrop at a fundraiser for Clinton's Senate campaign, where the official photographer spent the night with his back to the art to prevent her from appearing in a shot with the naked guy. 'She teases me about it all the time,' said Podesta."

Podesta says the photograph was taken down for "conservation reasons".

  2. It's a beautiful photograph, but I wouldn't be offended if it stayed or it was removed for the fundraiser.

  3. Well of course they took it down. Matt Drudge would have had a field day. He would have lambasted Clinton for being in the same room as a piece of filthy pornography. And then he would have masturbated to it.

  4. In this day of Photoshop...

    It's interesting to hear that the Podestas are still working with the Clintons. The only 'elite' Democrats are the Clintons, the Kennedys and a few others. The Podestas are more like 'elite' lawyers.

  5. And. This. Is. News?

    However, this is officially the best response ever:

  6. Who cares about the photograph, I want to know who the subject is! :)

  7. $250,000?!? It's not like someone painted it. That just seems a tad high to me, and yet I can understand why Van Gogh can sell for over $100 million.

  8. I have a postcard (cheaper than the real thing) of that photograph that I use as a bookmark (and drool over on occasion); oddly, in my version HIllary isn't waving and shouting, "Over here, girlfriend!"

  9. Podesta says the photograph was taken down for "conservation reasons".

    Does that mean the room is now a "green" room?

    I guess heavy breathing does add to global warming.
