OK, so this poster has started appearing all over the Los Angles area...

So what, You say, just political satire/commentary? Right? The normal snarkyness associated with our freewheeling libertarian type of political system.

Well according to the local Dimicrat powers that be: Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery;it is mean-spirited and dangerous.

You know, I never heard ONE word of protest over the last eight years when President Bush was depicted as Hitler, or a big eared monkey, or any of the other 20 variations of satiric depictions that were displayed in the public media on a daily basis; it was just "blowing off some steam" when progressive pundits publicly advocated the assassination of President Bush in (according to them, unserious) tones. Yet let anyone depict their Icon in any manner other than in the most reverent, and it's suddenly a case of being beyond the pale for political discourse.

It's almost as if Hopey-Changetude were a religion with pResident OBamba as its god, and any that questioned Teh WON were committing blasphemy of the highest order...and you know what happened to blasphemers in the past.

Personally, I need to go see a guy at my local print shop and see what it would cost to print a thousand posters .... and maybe see about getting a Nomex firesuit?

Update: This picture was published in Vanity Fair on July 29, 2008....


What was that about "mean-spirited and dangerous ?!? Well? Here's some of the comments that article provoked:

"Great stuff from the talented Friedman (as always). As "agents of chaos" go, W's right up there with the best of 'em."

"So true. Only his puppet strings are missing. :-)"

"Very good!!!"

"Poor Joker, he doesn't deserve this. Bush isn't good enough to wear his face."

"Brilliant and profound."

And those are just the first five of over 75 comments and they got more malicious as the thread grew...

Goose, don't complain when it's YOU instead of the gander being cooked.
