“SHE’S ONLY SEVENTEEN …”
|| By FITSNEWS || Paintings of modern day politicians have always struck us as awkward. Seriously, didn’t the whole “let’s paint our leaders” thing go out of style right around the time the head of Citizen Louis Capet (a.k.a. Louis XVI) landed in a basket in the Place de la Concorde in Paris in 1783?
Because we would have taken that as a sign …
Anyway … here we have an an oil-on-linen portrait of S.C. governor Nikki Haley, painted by artist John Seibels Walker.
The painting – which is making the rounds among members of the Republican National Committee – features Haley standing in the drawing room of the South Carolina governor’s mansion.
“To me, the artist has made her look about seventeen,” one source told FITS.
Of interest? Haley is sporting the same suit she wore during her address to the 2012 Republican National Convention … a prime time speaking slot she secured via the infamous “Savannah River Sellout.”
Oh well … Haley’s shameless betrayal of our state’s economic interests never became an issue during her 2014 reelection campaign (a race she won handily – at least among those who showed up).
“Let them eat cake,” in other words.
