Tuesday's Washington Post Style section carried this front-page headline "Pesky ant video refuses to die." But the only new developments on the National Portrait Gallery story were security officers removing two (left-wing) protesters on Saturday and the laments of a radical curator on Monday. No one in Jacqueline Trescott's article spoke for the conservatives. An award for unintentional hilarity should go to curator Jonathan Katz, who lamented "homophobia and raw politics" ruined his exhibit -- it was "lost in the mudslinging," as if they weren't slinging mud (or bugs) at the Cross -- and furthermore, "the way forward is to refocus attention to the degree by which the show, by remaining up, continues to resist politics."
Ridiculous. Anyone who's seen the show and read the exhibit captions knows the exhibit is thoroughly political, with captions railing against the "Lavender Scare" of the 1950s, and an artwork where heterosexuals are a set of clowns shaped like a hangman's noose.
