 Cartoon strip:

  Baker: “Gee, George, you were great!”

  George: “It’s history—help someone to power covertly and you go up with them.”

  Baker: “You mean like Noriega and Hussein?”

  George: “Yeah and when you get there, you expect them to cooperate.” 

  Baker: “And if they don’t?”

  George: “Then you kick ass and show who’s #1.”

  Baker: “Aren’t you afraid they’ll reveal the CIA stuff?”

  George: “Naw, no one listens to losers!”

 

ARTIST COMMENT:

            This painting was first titled ONLY 326.   Words and numbers shuffled into the pages of history by the first George Bush.  Why weren’t the dead allowed to speak?
