Do you see George Bush as Barabus?

So this is a little part of a restored painting at the Diocesean Museum of Cortona, Italy. It depicts Barabus (the thief) carrying the cross for Jesus up the hill before he gets crucified (painted I think by Beato (Fra) Angelico. Looks like someone took some editorial license with that restoration, eh?
