The final piece of the George Dubya series gives the viewer/participant the symbolic ability to remove Bush from office. Press the lever (toilet handle) and have the satisfaction of flushing Bush. The drawing/collage component of the artwork traces Bush from his shaky (s)election (lasting harm for democracy?) to the end of the road (hopefully for his presidency)-a state of seemingly permanent war and bloodshed.
