Chicago Bar Features Sarah Palin Nude Portrait

When Sarah Palin first entered the Presidential race as John McCain's candidate for vice-president, very few people had any idea who she was. In their hunt for information about her and her political views, many reporters, bloggers, and pundits have criticized her for her lack of interviews and media exposure. Now, she's getting plenty of exposure in a Chicago bar.

The four-foot-tall (1.2 m) oil painting portrays the Alaska governor standing on a polar-bear-skin rug ('she doesn't believe in global warming,' said the creator) and toting an automatic rifle ('she's really into hunting'). In the picture, Palin is wearing nothing but a pair of red stiletto heels and her trademark eyeglasses. A window in the background looks out onto an Alaska landscape, complete with a moose. (The adults-only uncensored portrait can be viewed here.)

'She can even do the voice.' In fact, Elliott's daughter, Grace, is such a good double for the potential V.P., she served as the model. That's right. She posed nude for her dad.

You know what I find 'bizarrely fascinating- It's the artist's daughter! And I'd have to agree with Scott Smith of the TOC Blog on this one: 'If [she] is bartending when I'm in there, I'm probably going to have to leave because I'll be too uncomfortable to order a drink.'

    I read this story in the Tribune and was wondering if that guy really had his daughter pose nude. I figured maybe she wore a bikini or something.

    I hope so. That’s sick.

    Nope, she really was naked. She shrugged it off, telling reporters, “He changed my diapers.”
