In recent days an iconic poster of President Obama made up to look like Heath Ledger's "Joker" character from "The Dark Knight," has been seen all over Los Angeles.
The Obama-Joker poster, which shows Obama with white face paint, dark eye shadow and smudged red lipstick and also has the word "socialism" printed under the image, is nothing new. Obama was first depicted as the Joker before he was sworn in as president. Firas Khateeb posted a photoshopped image of Obama as the Joker at Flickr on January 18, 2009.
Obama supporters can't take it and call the poster "mean spirited and dangerous."
Where were theses free speech opponents when President Bush was depicted as the Joker?

All the attention the lefties have given the Obama-Joker poster has caused it to go viral online. On Monday the poster rose to the top of Google’s "Today’s Hot Trends" list.
