John Boehner Street Art Is Part Hairspray, Part Silence of the Lambs

Last night at 18th and Valencia streets we spotted this thoughtful critique of House Speaker John Boehner.

His dialogue comes from the Buffalo Bill character in Silence of the Lambs. It's fun to work out what exactly that might mean: Perhaps the artist intends Boehner as Bill, the American public as the girl in the pit, and the truth as the penis he hides between his legs?
