Michael D'Antuono's 'Who The Hell Is Grover Norquist' Painting May Haunt Your Dreams (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

We've seen Barack Obama riding a lion, Paul Ryan as a hot dog and Hilary Clinton as Marilyn Monroe. After all this, you'd think no political art could shock us any more.

And then we saw this.

who the hell is grover norquist

Political artist Michael D'Antuono's painting, entitled, "Who the Hell Is Grover Norquist?" gives a whole new look at the conservative lobbyist opposing congressional tax increases. The founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform looms Oz-like above well-dressed supplicants, breathing smoke onto a backwards Republican logo.

"He is the lobbyist whose Svengali-like control over the GOP has forbidden them to end the Bush tax cuts for the rich, creating unpresedented gridlock and putting them in a very 'uncompromising position' negotiating the fiscal cliff," D'Antuono asserts on his website.

The only thing that could make this partisan painting better is a surprise appearance by Jon Keas' Wicked Bachmann of the West.
