In what might be the product of a mental breakdown for a normal person, conservative loud-mouth Glenn Beck did a very Glenn Beck thing and attempted to auction a Barack Obama doll in a Mason Jar filled with beer (but positioned as urine). Beck, inspired by the outrage over Michael D’Antuono’s painting of a crucified Barack Obama in a Boston art gallery, called “Obama in a Pee-Pee” a work of satire. Beck didn’t dispute that D’Antuono’s painting was offensive–instead, he attempted to make the non-point point that liberal demands of censorship are wrong, and “Art is in the eye of the beholder.”
Although originally priced at $25,000, bids for Beck’s doll reached $11,000 on eBay before the auction site yanked it. Don’t fear, though–you can still bid for the doll by emailing Beck at email@example.com.
All proceeds go to Beck’s charity.
