The President As The Joker Incites Anger

Posters and cartoons have appeared depicting the President as the character from the Batman movie known as “the Joker.”

People seem incensed over the drawings prompting anger in some.

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson released a statement calling them “politically mean spirited and dangerous.”

Hutchinson said, “Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery, it is mean-spirited and dangerous.”

I wonder why it took so long before the depiction was roundly condemned?

I think it's pretty fitting, myself. Thin skin on the messiah, thin skin on the followers....

Isn't it amazing? No comments at all against such depiction of Bush, eyt they go ballistic over such when it is Hobama.

The poster of B HO is more comical than anything where as the one of Bush makes him look demonic.

I don't think they could get any less thin skinned.

Maybe they're just pissed cuz the poster makes him look too white.
