Obama Joker Poster Popping Up In Los Angeles

Interesting News Items has the scoop on The Joker’s vow:

“I’m hounded by the cops and Batman and now my trademarked characteristics are used to belittle a man whose political style I respect. This is too mean-spirited.”

Little Miss Attila supplies background and perspective on the aptness of The Joker as Obama metaphor.

The Anchoress has found an image of Pres. Bush portrayed as the Joker — did the Left object to that, or is that the sound of crickets? She administers a thorough shellacking.

Jimmy Bise at The Sundries Shack proposes an alternate character and image.

Michelle Malkin has comparison pictures here and here that liberals created of Pres. Bush, back in the good ol’ days when dissent was the highest form of patriotism.

Allahpundit at Hot Air also pines for those halycon days when “when it was cool to demonize the president, or even the presidential or vice-presidential nominee ….”

Prof. William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection also has images that show, “What goes around comes around.”

Frank J. at IMAO laments that the poster is racist and lets Keith Olbermann explain why. But I like Jim Treacher’s illustrated explanation better.

Jules Crittenden calls the poster a “teachable moment.”

And dear Dan Collins worries that a village in Kenya is … (punchline here).

Personally, I think the mythic persona of Obama was captured best by Rubens here.
