Obama Joker Poster Surfaces, Sparks Debate

by at . Comments

A mysterious poster featuring President Barack Obama portrayed as Heath Ledger's famous Joker are surfacing in L.A. The word "socialism" appears beneath him.

The Obama Joker poster is beginning to appear on off-ramps and underpasses in the Hollywood area. Who made and distributed copies of the poster is unknown.

Whoever is responsible for this viral marketing, is clearly a coordinated endeavor of some kind by a person or persons angry with the U.S. Commander-in-Chief.

The typical charge of socialism is made at the bottom of the likeness of Obama as the Joker from The Dark Knight, though no specific arguments are offered.

Maybe these pissed-off voters are not fans of universal health care?

While some find this to be harmless, even a clever play in the "Hope" poster circulating widely during his bid for the White House, others are a bit critical of Barack Obama being likened to a sadistic terrorist (albeit a fictional one).

What do you think of the Obama joker poster?

Why wasn't there a fourth option; "This shows how pathetic the far right is, what losers they are, and how far up their whatsits their heads are."

Lets get real the "government" is already in everything we do local, state or national. Us down on the lower level of the food chain has always experienced it. Now that we see things being even out you guys upward on the food chain starting to get you feathers ruffled. Welcome to our world. And on a personal note I loved the Joker, Heath Ledger version, He was Awesome!

And the ironic thing is that the poster was originally created by a 20 year old liberal who felt that Obama was not keeping his promises.
