Bar owner/artist's naked Palin painting drawing crowds

So not only are world leaders hitting on her but now GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is dealing with this.

This from Fox News:

A Chicago artist is drawing crowds to his bar after painting a portrait of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in the buff.

Bruce Elliott unveiled the 4-foot-tall portrait at the Old Town Ale House on Chicago's North Side last Thursday, the Windy Citizen reports. The governor is wearing her trademark hairdo, holding an automatic rifle and standing naked on a polar-bear skin rug.

"I don't see how she could be offended by this," Elliott told the Windy Citizen. "I made her into a sex figure."

The bar is well known locally for its portraits of bar regulars and Chicagoans, the Windy Citizen said. But the naked Palin portrait has been "very successful" for the bar owner, who admits to the Citizen that he's a supporter of Sen. Barack Obama.
