McCain's Never Looked Better

Photographer Jill Greenberg is facing death threats and some heavy-handed criticism for some photos she doctored of pictures she took of McCain and posted on her Website. Greenberg was hired by The Atlantic Monthly to photograph him for an October 2008 cover, but because she retains the copyright to all her photographs, it didn't take her long to show how she really feels about the presidential candidate. While the photos are no longer on her Web site, they are on artnet.

The images are fantastic photoshop work of McCain with bloody fangs and even one with a monkey pooping on McCain's head. Greenberg lost her agent over the mess, and some in blog-land are questioning if this is freedom of speech.

I think the photos are amazing and get to the heart of what most of us are thinking when we watch the guy suspend his campaign and head off to solve our fucking problems. Maybe when he's done with the financial crisis, he'll come back home to tackle the water issue.
