When Barack Obama arrived for a fundraiser at a Virginia art gallery this week, a large painting had been hidden quickly behind a curtain. The painting is a work entitled Snake Charmer, based upon the now infamous photo showing Britney Spears, sans underwear, stepping out of a car driven by Paris Hilton. An image of that painting is displayed here.

When KOVR-TV (Sacramento, CA) showed The Magic Negro video, along with an on-line poll, Rush Limbaugh made a threat to force them to stop. A copyright complaint to YouTube followed, blocking access to the video there.

This article details the events, and includes videos about the KOVR-TV dispute and the “Magic Negro” video in question.

Snake Charmer: Britney Spears’ Money Shot


Snake Charmer: A Painting by Jamie Boling

When Barack Obama arrived for his campaign fundraiser at a Virginia art gallery earlier this week, one large painting had been concealed rather quickly behind a curtain. There had been concerns that the painting by 33 year-old artist Jamie Boling might embarrass Senator Obama, who spoke to a gathering of about 500 supporters on Tuesday night at Richmond’s Plant Zero art gallery. The painting, which is shown above, is a 6′ x 10′ work entitled Snake Charmer that is based upon the now infamous paparazzi photo of Britney Spears, sans underwear, stepping out of a car that was being driven by Paris Hilton. Strictly for purposes of fine arts education, that photograph is presented below:
