New Anti-Obama ‘Joker’ Poster
August 3, 2009 Leave a comment
The poster, which bears a very superficial resemblance to Shepard Fairey’s famous Obama Hope illustration, has been pasted on freeway supports and other public surfaces. It has a bit of everything to appeal to the drunk tank of California conservatism: Obama is in white face, his mouth (like Ledger’s Joker’s) has been grotesquely slit wide open and the word “Socialism” appears below his face. The only thing missing is a noose.
The safe money says the first thing out of the mouths of Fox News bobble-heads is, “Can’t liberals take a joke?”
