Rather, they are art images created by various independent artists.
Apparently they are supposed to have a Warholian quality. is that a word?
Anyway, I totally missed that connection. I still think they recall the forced iconography and rallies at the command of the Soviet Union. exhibit A:
My friend Rob sent me this Wall Street Journal article. They looked into the craze back in July. I am glad to have the information. As I said in my earlier post, it just seemed odd to me that the Democratic National Committee would want to connect his image to those images.
Now we know - it's the creative types who seek to engrave the image - not the campaign.
Now I'm a fairly arty person - and this just lends gravity to the fact that art is indeed subjective - which is why I am NOT the only one who felt that connection.
Again, not saying Obama is the Red Scare - or a Communist - just questioning the visual tie-in. Question answered.
On the other hand... I thought tonight's SNL skit of Michelle & Barack's Variety Hour was a full on RIOT! Totally speaks to the iconic celebrity so rampant in his campaign. Just visualize Michelle and Barack as Donnie and Marie!! The theme song... "And now we're solid. Solid as Barack!"
If anyone can find the link let me know and I'll link it here. Too funny to miss.
Oh. And to keep my political posts to a minimum... I want to share this great thought with you here - via button!
While I'm not a fan of giving civil unions the same title of 'marriage' for reasons I can't even put my own finger on... I do believe that legally, homosexuals deserve the same civil rights for partnership.
I really don't see how gay marriage would threaten straight marriages - except for the knowledge that my gay friends have been together longer than most of my married friends - and it stands to reason that Gays might actually lower the divorce rate!
Straights aren't really raising the bar there.
Now I promise this will be my last political post here - because my blog really isn't about that.
Thanks for indulging me all the same.
Now back to our regularly scheduled blogging.
