LOS ANGELES -- A poster showing President Barack Obama as Heath Ledger's "Joker" character from "The Dark Knight" is creating a stir on the streets of Los Angeles where the image began appearing over the weekend...Maybe Mr. Hutchinson spoke out in a similar manner when Bush was spoofed on the pages of Vanity Fair and I just missed it, but somehow I doubt it.
"Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery," says [Earl Ofari] Hutchinson, "it is mean-spirited and dangerous."
UPDATE: You just knew someone had to go there:
Obama is in white face, his mouth (like Ledger's Joker's) has been grotesquely slit wide open and the word "Socialism" appears below his face. The only thing missing is a noose.A noose? I haven't seen Batman Whatever, but I'm pretty sure there was no noose. So I guess this fine liberal* gentleman is admitting to us all that when he sees a picture of a black guy, he thinks "noose." Maybe he needs to have a beer with this guy to work out his racial issues.
* and to answer his question, no, liberals cannot take a joke. We know that, ok?
