Obama’s Dark Knight?

Politics Obama Art

Several conservative leaning sites are making much ado about a new Obama poster that is supposedly “popping up” all over L.A. and Atlanta. The picture depicts Obama as a Heath Ledger-style Joker bearing the caption “Socialist” or “Socialism” underneath. Yet only a few pictures of the poster have been produced to verify this new merge between art and politics, and even the artist remains anonymous. One photo that has been made public appears to show the poster underneath a freeway on-ramp in L.A. and another from a KFC restaurant in Atlanta (which looks like a possible Photoshop IMO). Is that all it takes for the conservatives to go batshit crazy and get so worked up about it? Seems like pretty flimsy evidence to garner so much attention. But then again, they are the ones who came up with the “Birther” conspiracy theory. Reality was never their strong suit. And as for the elusive artwork itself, I’m no critic, but I don’t think Shepard Fairey will be losing any sleep over the new competition.
