Catching Up With The Obama Joker Poster Creator
Remember all the hub-bub a few weeks back over the Obama-as-Dark-Knight-Joker posters? It seems the LA media has caught up with the creator of the posters and he's Firas Alkhateeb, a history major at the University of Illinois. It all started with a Photoshop exercise using an old Time Magazine cover though he's not responsible for those posters. According to him, someone lifted the image from his Flickr for those; Alkhateeb abstained from voting this past November and cites Dennis Kucinich as the candidate he was most likely to support.
As for the "socialism" charge, Alkhateeb told ABC News, "[it] doesn't make any sense to me at all. To accuse him of being a socialist is really ... immature. First of all, who said being a socialist is evil?"
