    I dunno. I just remember, the first scene of that movie was a bank heist. Isn't that kind of the opposite of what Obama did that they're complaining about?

    What does Obama's being black have to do with The Joker? And might I remind everyone of this?

    Is it that bizarre to compare a politician one doesn't like to a villain who steals money and wreaks havoc wherever he goes?

    I just think its the same as the New Labour New Danger posters in the UK back in 1997 when the conservatives portrayed tony blair with the eyes of a demon.

    I would really just prefer the 1984-style head pic with the caption "Big Brother Is Watching." It works on so many levels...
