In reality; It would be Jesus with most of those cards and the “Second Coming”…..except the cards say more accurate phrases like….in order….“Religious Freedom for All Faiths (My moral teachings as Christ are universal)”, “Immigration Reform with Less Red-Tape and No More ‘Quotas’”, "Accurate Media & Well-Funded Public Schools’”, “Progressive Politics & Politicians Who Serve All The People”, “LGBT Pride, Acceptance & Equality”, “The End of ‘Citizens’ United” and “The Majority of the American People”.
I’m bummed about Bill Clinton, too. I knew he was a guy who liked fooling around with “other women” but the idea of him raping young girls is….damn! I hope he was just a pal who did regular “pal” stuff with Epstein….but considering why guys mostly hung out with the guy….well, Hillary better hire a good divorce attorney.
Well; I was able to scratch-out The Cos and The King of Pop off my list of “Awesome People” so I can do it with Hillary’s dopey hubby as well (Though I merely saw Bill as ‘Okay but a bit Centrist and mediocre….but he did put the country financially in The Black , play a mean sax and was certainly a better POTUS than Bush Jr. and Agent Orange’).
I still enjoy Michael Jackson’s music when it comes on the radio or something (it helps that he’s dead) but it’s going to take longer to warm up to Cosby’s brilliant comedic storytelling (fortunately, he’s ancient, blind and decrepit and bound to croak, soon). Even then; The “Cosby” stuff will be limited to silliness about growing up or his family and nothing more “adult” like the routines he did about strippers, “Spanish Fly”, His alleged time in Mexico or Spain with his Robert Culp and the bit about the Japanese Ladies in “those wonderful baths”.
In regards to “Separating the Art from the Artist”, I think the answer is “It depends”. Certain factors need to be considered….
* The nature of the misdeed.
* Is the person physically alive or not?
* If not; How long ago did they pass away?
* Is the misdeed blatantly reflected in the person’s “work”?
* Does the person’s good outweigh the bad?
* Does the person’s work have a strong historical or humanitarian value?
….If we wrote-off everyone completely, we’d have little of value and culture left. We couldn’t even defend the USA from the Orange & Red Menace and their sycophants due to our Founding Principles being written by some rich white slave owners who were huge hypocrites. Jefferson was the most noxious one but he was one of the GREATEST of the Founding Fathers with some of the most awesome stuff!
