UPDATE: There Will Be No White House 'Impeach Bush' Ornament

Apparently the ornament reported on earlier has been snubbed...(I knew it was too good to be true!)

This morning, the Washington Post reported that Seattle-based artist Deborah Lawrence would have her ornament hung on the White House Christmas tree. The ornament saluted Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) for attempting to impeach Bush. Sally McDonough, a spokeswoman for First Lady Laura Bush, reported this afternoon that the ornament would not be displayed:

"It's inappropriate and it's not being hung," she said. She said that when asked
about the issue yesterday, the White House tree decorations were not complete.
"We reviewed the ornament along with all the [other] ornaments, and Mrs. Bush
deemed it inappropriate for the holiday tree."
Lawrence responded, "Oh, dear. This doesn't really surprise me. But it's disappointing that I won't get to see it on the tree."
