No clue, dude, I don't use IE or FF. I got Opera. I think the not real way to hijack my browser is to inject some JS that changes some of the site compatability settings. *shrugs*

How could it be anything but fake?

Clearly you don't get what I mean by fake (as in it's not astroturf by Old Rupert [Murdoch]).

I find the poster offensive...not for political reasons, but for logical ones.  What the hell does socialism have to do with the "Dark Knight's" Joker?  He was for anarchy, chaos, and breaking the rules...sounds closer to a libertarian view then a socialist view.  I guess you could say his programs are like the social experiments like the hospital and the boat, but that's a stretch.

I cooked one last night well enough. With onions, tomatoes, and baked potatoes.

I think it's a weak reference to the "joke is on us." I'm betting it was originally done by some [Hillary] Clintonistas back early on in 2008.

That Joker was against society. He was for chaos, death, destruction, and lawlessness. While that fits one definition of anarchy, I don't see why anyone that calls himself an anarchist as a moral position because it allows for positive social interaction would want to associate himself with that character. It seems to me that associating the Joker with anarchy creates a false dichotomy that mis-characterizes the issue.

The statists who constantly seek to socially engineer the world actually create disorder, chaos, and destruction. I think comparing the Joker to them is more apt than calling him an "anarchist".

Who gives a shit.  It has the Obamaistas all hot and bothered.  I wouldn't care if it made him up to look like Schemp, just so long as it pissed them assholes off.

Obama is going to be speaking in NH on Tuesday.  Something in Portsmouth.  It would be awesome to canvas all the routes to the event with these posters
