TJR: Charlie Russell For Governor

The great western artist Charlie Russell  - that's him in a tent with a paint brush - never, as far as I know, contemplated a political life. Considering that he spent many early years as a cowboy in the tough country of central Montana, he would have been a shoo-in. Russell, a great artist, was by all accounts also a great story teller and he could ride a horse. Russell was a legit cowboy. That might just have been good enough to win high public office/Marc Johnson, The Johnson Report. More here.

Question: Who is your favorite western artist?
