Che Obama

Have we really reached the point in American politics where someone running for president can commission campaign art to mirror Communist revolutionaries?

Does it really mirror it that closely? I mean, Marilyn looks a bit like it, too.

You must be right, Dwain. I saw a story about this artwork being commissioned by the Obama campaign a while back. It immediately struck me as very similar to the Che t-shirt icon. I didn't see anyone else pointing this out, so I thought I would. Now I know why; it was just a figment of my imagination.

Ha! I'm just surprised that we've reached a point in American politics where we commission art before we win. I'm still not 100% with you on the Chebama connection, but it's certainly a suspicious choice of artistic styles.

This Obamania is completely out of hand. I'm not sure if it's his followers who have made him the messiah or if he feels it, but I know where my vote is going.

Marilyn 2008!
