It looks like some as-yes-unidentified group has plastered a new anti-Obama poster in several conspicuous spots around Los Angeles. The image is a take-off of Heath Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight: it shows Barack Obama with a white face, extra-wide blood red lips, and two black eyes. The version that’s been posted around LA says “socialist,” although I’ve seen similar images on the internet that say “why so socialist?”
What’s your take on the Obama Joker poster? Is it effective as an attention-getter? As a mind-changer?
And more importantly, what do you think of the socialism charge? Is Obama really trying spark a socialist revolution in America, or are conservatives just trying to smear him with a dirty word?
