Some politics are local: Why do artists (and Bob Simon) hate America?

Reston's contingent of hippie America-hater artists are holding an art auction to benefit Barrack Obama's presidential campaign. You'd expect that from the Washington elites, what with their paintbrushes and imported French chardonnay and cheese-like substances they call "brie," but this time, they're not alone.

Women artists from Reston are joining Bob Simon, the community’s founder, for an art auction to benefit Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. The auction will take place on Thursday, Oct. 23, at Hidden Creek Country Club, 1711 Clubhouse Road, from 7 to 10 p.m. Some of the works for the Arts for Obama auction were created specifically for the event, depicting themes of his race for the presidency.

"It sounds like a cliché, but I think it’s true this time, we’ve never had a more critical election," said Simon about his choice to take an active role in the event.
Conservatives, take heart -- tickets to this event are $50 a pop, and given the events of the last eight years, that's more than most people have in equity in their homes and their 401(k)s combined, the end.
