[The Joker] had a big damn chip on his shoulder about his childhood and about a bunch of other things. His goal was to undermine the whole system. . . . And to effect the change that the people of Gotham City didn't want, the Joker created chaos upon chaos. The whole city was focused on him and what he was going to do next. He viewed crisis as an opportunity. So the Joker orchestrated crisis after crisis after crisis. And the Joker wore a mask. I mean whoever put this poster together is pretty smart because there are some similarities here to what the Joker did in that movie and what Obama is doing to this country.
Obama has admitted to wearing masks. In "Dreams from My Father": (paraphrasing) "It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned. People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied; they were relieved, such a pleasant surprise to find a well mannered young black man who didn't seem angry all the time." This is his tactic for fooling white people. This is the mask.Limbaugh was explicit: Obama has been conning whites. Is that a racist attack? I'll let you decide. But with such powers of analysis, Limbaugh, no doubt, will soon be likening Obama to other Batman enemies: Mr. Freeze, the Riddler and Two-Face. There's a whole line of posters waiting.
This thing that Vanity Fair ran doesn't even look like Bush. It looks like David Corn, the guy who used to write for The Nation. On a normal day it looks like David Corn.Ouch. But having one's physical appearance besmirched by Rush Limbaugh is like having one's moral fiber questioned by . . . well, Rush Limbaugh. (For the record, I now work for Mother Jones, not The Nation.) One stoops to Limbaugh's gutter level at some peril. But I will say that if a casting director had to choose between Limbaugh and me for someone to play the role of The Penguin, another Batman nemesis, there's no doubt who would get the nod. By the way, what word did GOP Chairman Michael Steele reach for in March to describe Limbaugh? Oh, yes, it begins with a "u."
