The Power And Danger Of Iconography
A little long, but very interesting (08:09)
Branding Of An Ideology
Barack Obama ran an unprecedented presidential campaign -- utilizing the
power of design to usurp the seat of the President of the United States
of America. However, his
the ever present "O", holds more power than even Obama knows. Bill
Whittle points out the dangers of branding an ideology with an icon and

Hope -- You Can Survive Obama
The person who is most responsible for Obama's
iconoclastic image is his official poster-maker, Shepard
Fairey, who also loves Marx, Mao, and the rest.
One of the most prominent Los Angeles artists, Fairey, made a brief statement, noting his
"great conviction that Barack Obama should be the next President."
Poster sales, he added, would underwrite "a large statewide poster
In addition to popping up on many streets, the image later made its way
onto a T-shirt, created in collaboration with the San Francisco
street-wear brand Upper Playground -- and apparently onto the radar of
the Obama campaign. The candidate himself sent a thank-you note
(at link) and his campaign had Fairey create a new poster that became
the inaugural offering in an "Artists for Obama" section of the
barackobama.com online store. Fairey told Creativity Online that
while he has been politically active, there’s something new in the
enthusiasm he now professes to feel. "I just thought it was time to
stick my neck out."
Obama’s economic plan is to tax the rich in order the give money to
the poor. Of course, this is nothing more than the core philosophy of
the welfare state. It is also the core principle of socialism.
Barack Obama collected Spider-Man comics as a child,
so Marvel Comics wanted to give him a "shout-out back" by
featuring him in a bonus story, said Joe Quesada, Marvel's
"How great is that? The commander in chief to be is actually a
nerd in chief," Quesada said. "It was really, really cool to see
that we had a geek in the White House. We're all thrilled with
The comic starts with Spider-Man's alter-ego Peter Parker taking
photographs at the inauguration, before spotting two identical Obamas.
Parker decides "the future president's gonna need Spider-Man," and
springs into action, using basketball to determine the real Obama and
punching out the impostor.
Obama thanks him with a fist-bump.
The Obama story is a bonus in Marvel Comic's Amazing Spider-Man #583,
available in comic book shops nationwide on Jan. 14 for $3.99 and is
expected to sell out, with half the covers devoted to Obama.

A preview of the new play "HOPE -- The Obama Musical Story," was
staged in Offenbach, Germany this week, and judging by these
photos and video, it looks like a rollicking good show. The
Broadway-style political biopic is sung in English, and all the major
characters from the 2008 presidential race make an appearance, including
a scantily clad former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin, a
gospel-crooning Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former Democratic candidate
Hillary Clinton, and former Democratic candidate Barack Obama along with
his wife, Michelle. "HOPE -- The Obama Musical Story" will debut
in Frankfurt, Germany on Jan. 17.

Obama The Saviour
A carnival float representing a fallen Barack Obama, with the words "Obama as
messiah" on his
shirt, is pictured during the traditional Rose Monday carnival
parade in the western German city of Duesseldorf, February 15, 2010.
The Rose Monday parades in Cologne, Mainz and Duesseldorf are the
highlight of the German street carnival season.

"Obama, the Loser," to me. Either way, it looks like the rose
is off the bloom in Germany.
The translation of Erloser from Ferman is
savior. The picture presumably refers to a
"Jesus Christus Erlöser" (2008). It appears as though Obama
was compared to the latest Klaus Kinski character.

Forget Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan the Barbarian and meet

featured in a series of new comic books which will be published in June.

loincloth-wearing President of 'Kickassistan'.
In another called
The Righteous Retribution of Barack the Barbarian, he is pictured in a
fight to the death with a screeching enchantress.
In the Quest
for the Treasure of Stimuli, he takes on his Nemesis, former Republican
vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who sports a cape made from
wolf skin and her trademark glasses - and very little else.
