Obama Joker poster hits LA, Atlanta


Posters of U.S. President Barack Obama, made to look like Heath Ledger’s version of the Joker in The Dark Knight, have started spreading throughout L.A., but nobody seems to know who’s responsible for it.

Obama is shown with white makeup on his face and, like the Joker, he has his mouth slit wide open. Below the image is the word “socialism,” although I’ve seen similar pictures on the internet that say “why so socialist?”

A version of the poster showed up in Atlanta.

Obviously, the Obama Joker poster is an attack on the president’s push to reform America’s healthcare system. He is apparently losing some support among the public for his plan and this was cleared with the latest survey conducted by the New York Times recently.

What’s your take on the Obama Joker poster? Is it a good political commentary? Or just another a protest fail?
