Obama: Out of touch

From the New Yorker:

With the general election four months away, Obama’s rhetoric on the topic now seems outdated and out of touch, and the nominee-apparent may have a political problem concerning the very issue that did so much to bring him this far.


  1. Kathryn says:

    New Yorker or not, that doesn’t look like Obama. Reminds me of someone else.

  2. BrkfldDad says:

    Its an in process morph of Obama into Saddam.

  3. Kathryn says:

    I was thinking of Sammy Davis Jr.

  4. Wow. Interesting observations. I can see both.

    I’m kind of fixated on the shadow, though.

  5. Kathryn says:

    The shadow looks like Bing Crosby!

  6. Kathryn says:

    Or maybe Fred Astaire. I’m thinking of a cartoon I saw as a child…one of them was the narrator, and he was caricatured wearing a scarf. Wish I could remember.

  7. BrkfldDad says:

    The shadow does look a bit like Weird Harold or Bill from Fat Albert, although the chin is a bit long… lol

  8. As far as the shadow goes, Dick Van Dyke.

  9. Shawn Matson says:

    Or Bill Cosby haha

  10. Yes! Mary Poppins! Good catch, Capper. Although honestly, the exaggerated lips did remind me of the Fat Albert cartoon days.

    So, Dan, is the degree post named or did you still graduate from Carroll College?

  11. Anyone for Stan Laurel?

  12. Oh, heck. Get one of each!
