Your awesome Obama picture of the day

Behold, below the fold, one of the strangest paintings of Barack Obama yet conceived.


Why oh why is House in this one? I mean, Stalin's presence I can understand; but why include the curmudgeonly and highly skilled physician?

Or maybe it's not House?

How confusing!

Stalin is there for support
House represents the new working class as no one will escape the 'vision'

Why didn't the artist create such a dull sword...money is of no concern when other people are forced to pay for it...

Where is the $GS symbol hidden?

Could they have been more obvious with the phallic symbol?

I think that's Lee Marvin, in his role as A#1, in "Emperor of the North". He represents the working man, driven to a life of living off the land, fighting the tyranny of American capitalism.

What's with the bottle of pills in Country Joe's hand? Does that symbolize socialism as the best medicine for America?

I suppose even art has to be dumbed down for Obama supporters.

It's probably House. Dan Lacey (the artist) did another one that has "Ugly Betty" in it. But Lacey is best known (or wants to be known) for his pancake pictures. Here are some links:

All hail the dark Lord....
The annointed one cometh and he's brought his political policy advisor and a representative for his catastrophic health care plan.

"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money [to spend]."

Margaret Thatcher

Obama is doing the same dumb things as Bush and Greenspan. Spend, take on more debt, build the bubble larger. He wants to tax the rich now too. That will go over well

He's there as a representation of medicine. Stalin=socialism, House=medicine...Socialized medicine
