    Obama 'Joker' Poster Causing Stir in L.A.


    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.

    The Obama-Joker poster shows President Obama with white face paint, dark eye shadow and smudged red lipstick and also has the word "socialism" printed in bold, dark letters under the image of his face.

    It's unclear who created the image and who is posting it across the city. No one has taken credit so far.

    Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling the depiction, politically mean spirited and dangerous.

    Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the poster to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.

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

    "We have issued a public challenge to the person or group that put up the poster to come forth and publicly tell why they have used this offensive depiction to ridicule President Obama."

    The poster has also gone viral online, crashing the website that first posted images of it and rising to the top of Google's "Today's Hot Trends" list.

    Damn they finally found Obama's only realistic photo!

    I applaud the people who did this. I like the response on how the local government authority call it "dangerous". In a month or two when the next one comes out, they will label it "home grown terrorism" or some BS.

    I got a good lol before bed

    Isn't it strange that liberals can show Bush and Cheney as demons and call them any name they can come up with and call it democracy, but when Obama is called out and made fun of it "goes beyond political spoofery".

    Also the dems are starting to say "dangerous" alot, like they know Obama's "SS police" are going to begin rounding people up.

    I personally believe both sides are out to destroy all of us. I think the only way we will stop this is by voting out the lower level politicians. Thats where most start their career. I can't find the source but when our country began our founders came from all backgrounds (i.e. farmers, business men), now like 90% are lawyers and trust fund babies.

    This is not an advertisement but check out www goooh com. It's pretty interesting. I think if we can get enough groups like this going, we may be able to save our country.

    These were found all over the Orlando FL area last week:

    They found the creator of the image:

    But of course anyone bored enough and wanting to cause a stir can print them out and put them all over cities.
