Old Town Ale House Hangs Nude Portrait of Sarah Palin

Northside Chicago bar (and favorite Second City-area hangout) Old Town Ale House is sharing a naked picture of a high heel-wearing, gun-toting Sarah Palin, painted by the owner's husband.

"Elliott, whose wife, Tobin Mitchen, owns the Old Town Ale House on Chicago's North Side, painted a nude portrait of the Republican vice presidential nominee and hung it above the bar, where it's now a prime attraction among his display of more than 200 celebrity portraits and other racy art."

"'I've been following her religiously,' he said Monday at the bar. 'I had never heard of her before, like everyone else. I find her bizarrely fascinating, even though I pretty much despise everything she stands for.'"
