This Sophisticated White House

Nancy Benac, an Associated Press writer, schools us in the high culture of the Obama White House.
You can't see it, but there's a quiet cultural revolution under way at the White House.

The Obamas are decorating their private spaces with more modern and abstract artwork than has ever hung on the White House walls.[...] Bold colors, odd shapes, squiggly lines have arrived.

What is your question for the Magic Teleprompter?

Ed Ruscha's 1983 oil on canvas painting, 'I' think I'll...'

When everyone leaves, a special light is switched on to show the alternate image painted on this canvas for the Obamas to enjoy.

If the author of the AP article had been Robert Stacy McCain:
Bold colors, odd shapes, squiggly lines have arrived.
Bold colors: The White Supremacist McCain is calling the Obamas Negroes.

Odd shapes: The raaaaacist McCain is making fun of Michelle Obama's appearance and wardrobe.

Squiggly lines: The raaaaacist White Supremacist McCain is making fun of nappy hair.

All indisputable proof that Robert Stacy McCain is indeed a raaaaacist White Supremacist & Southern Rube.

But since the article was gushingly written by sympathetic Nancy Benac, it's cool.
