Updated! Democrats to Rehang “Pigs” Painting in Capitol Building

Well, I guess all the real big problems of the nation have been solved, since Democrats have the free time to deal with this:

Democratic lawmakers put back on display on Capitol Hill a controversial painting that angered police with its depiction of officers as pigs — after Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter personally took down the picture last week.

The move Tuesday by members of the Congressional Black Caucus and Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., whose office for months had sponsored the display of the student artwork, could revive tensions with the law enforcement community.

And the Democrats think this is, as my Marine friends would say, the hill they want to die on? They want to make a big deal over a painting depicting law enforcement officers as swine, and named for said swine?

UPDATE: It appears the picture is down again.
