Oooh, Mister President!

Okay, I know a lot of women voted for Obama at least partly on hormonal grounds. (Hey, it works both ways; Sarah Palin had more going for her than just domestic policy!) But this puts a whole different spin on the phrase "Lincoln Bedroom":
Artist Justine Lai's new project is a set of oil paintings of her having sex with every president of the USA, in order.

"In Join Or Die, I paint myself having sex with the Presidents of the United States in chronological order. I am interested in humanizing and demythologizing the Presidents by addressing their public legacies and private lives."

This calls up a whole bunch of questions. Who really wants to see her in flagrante delectable with, say, Richard Nixon? Or Honest Abe? How will she handle James Buchanan, in light of his rumored proclivities? When she gets to William Howard Taft, will we even be able to see her? And don't even get me started on the potential for "Millard Fillmore" or "Franklin Pierce" jokes.
