Thanks to Basil Tydings for the image

The people who brought you the nude Sarah Palin photo are back and this time, it's Gov. Blagojevich getting the emperor's clothes treatment. Artist Bruce Eliot of the Old Town Ale House has concocted this grand painting, simply titled "The Cavity Search." That looks like George Ryan in the background as a fellow inmate, but can anyone name the other one? It looks kinda like Al Sharpton, but that can't be right, can it?

And in case you missed it somehow, here is the transcript of The Hair's statement and below is the video.
