    A controversial painting showing President Obama holding a burning Constitution can now be yours to hang next to your moose head or wherever else you wish.

    Utah artist Jon McNaughton told the site Buzzfeed this week that the asking price for original versions of the painting will be $300,000. The artist also told the site that Fox News host Sean Hannity has already purchased one of the three originals for "at least six figures." (McNaughton was a recent guest on Hannity's show.)

    "One Nation Under Socialism" was unveiled in March and has caused a stir on the Internet. The politically conservative McNaughton stated on his website that he believes the U.S. has been moving in the direction of socialism for the last 100 years.

    Times Art Critic Christopher Knight called the painting "junk," writing that it fails to illustrate or communicate the idea expressed in its title. "It's bad art because it does not create belief in the fiction that the artist has rendered. Instead, the artist's belief must be explained," he wrote.

    This isn't the first time that McNaughton has attacked Obama in his art work. The artist has created paintings showing Obama stepping on the Constitution as the founding fathers look on in dejection and Obama addressing a crowd of people who are weighed down in chains.

    300K is a lot, but Sean Hannity bought one.

    If I'm not mistaken we fought a war against a group of Socialists not so long ago.................I think they were called NAZIs(National Socialist Workers Party).I was wondering if anybody else remembers this?
