It seems a few Chicago-related items have mashed into an unusual political statement out in Los Angeles. Someone has taken the make-up scheme from Heath Ledger's Dark Knight joker and placed it on a photo of President Obama. Below the image on each poster is the word "socialism." No one's claimed responsibility for the guerrilla artwork. [Bedlam Magazine, Newsbusters via Drudge]
