Obama Joker Poster: It Does Exist!
The Obama joker poster spread so fast globally that the phrase "obama joker posters" as of now leads to 242,000 Google hits, and set off an international debate, ranging from the UK to South America, over whether the poster's message is "free speech" or a "dangerous" racial hit on the prez.
Nobody knows yet who the artist is, but it seems almost certain that the poster, titled "Socialism," first appeared here in Los Angeles. That day, one Los Angeles news radio station reported it could not actually find any of the posters -- but now they are starting to show up citywide. These posters were found on Hollywood Blvd. upon entering the 101 freeway.
