Naked Blagojevich Painting In Works By 'Nude Sarah Palin' Artist (VIDEO)

The Chicago Tribune reports that local artist Bruce Elliott is "nearly complete" with a nude painting of Rod Blagojevich titled "The Cavity Search," which pictures the embattled Illinois governor "handcuffed and wearing an orange jumpsuit pulled down to his knees," with a guard near by "pulling on a rubber glove."

[The painting] will hang on the wall of Elliott's wife's bar, the Old Town Ale House, next to his infamous depiction of a naked Sarah Palin. It is the next installment in what Elliott loosely calls his "nude governor series."

Elliott cites many sources of inspiration for the painting, which shows the governor, who was arrested last week on corruption charges, preparing for a potential first day of incarceration. Among them: the extent of the governor's alleged misdeeds and the artist's desire to respond to criticism from Republicans and women about the Palin portrait by painting a Democrat in the buff.
