Santa Angelina, my large post-baby ass.

This painting by Kate Kretz, Blessed Art Thou, has received a fair amount of attention in the press recently. It depicts Angelina Jolie as an angel, floating over a Walmart check-out line.
Can anyone explain why the world is so obsessed with this woman? And why the hell do people consider her a saint? Don't people remember what she was like before she became all Brad-ified?
I must admit, I do like this painting because of the ambiguity.
Frankly, I think it shows just how gullible we all are. We, America, are Angelina Jolie's PR project. And we're buying it hook, line and sinker.
