The person who created the poster is great. The one who pasted it to the box is a wanker.

I saw a "McCain for Grandpa" sticker pasted to a newspaper box the other day that was pretty funny...

In other news, taking a picture with a cell phone camera of a sticker on a newspaper box makes people look at you funny.

Meanwhile, McCain's mug has also been pasted to the body of yet another beloved comic book character.

Aw crap, sometimes Chrome does weird things with links. Should have been this:

That's cool or whatever, but if people are spending their time doing that instead of voter contact, they are wasting their time.

I see you you're Obama poster and raise you this

Politics aside, this is absolutely nauseating. As if Obama has dished out enough heroics to qualify the treatment he has been receiving. For instance, the children’s choirs nauseating tune extolling the “Almighty Obama” (YouTube that shit). We’re not a tribe; we’re a country primarily comprised of individuals capable of self sufficiency. It’s a dangerous act to raise one man to a place of such high expectations. It’s not fair to Obama, and it’s not fair to American citizens. Barack Obama will never emulate Martin Luther King Jr., and we should not expect him to. We need a leader capable of promoting growth and providing a steadfast defense of our constitutional rights.

And for the record, this is not an attack on this specific piece, or the opinions of the artist. This is simply a critique of the behavior exhibited by a portion of metropolitan democrats belonging to the 18-30 set in Los Angeles. I myself am a 20 year old “artist” who has lived between Seattle and Los Angeles for the entirety of my short life. I’m a sleazy, borderline asshole who uses and abuses the freedom of speech to greatest extent possible. I’m a social liberal, but I do not believe in a nationalized effort towards the annihilation of societal stigma. It’s called evolution, and we’re rapidly approaching a golden era. It needs to be us, and we need to be in control. As US citizens, we’re the greatest enforcers of liberty.

Triple A+. Top shelf. Fabulous and smart. Grounded both in art history and the politics of its time.
