*There will also be other stuff at the Daily Caller. A heck of a lot of stuff, if you can even endure my use of such harsh language. What I'm saying is that this silliness will be but a small part of that webbed-site. Summon it up with your newfangled gadgetry. Do it.

whoever wrote the original Jack Schiff:
Thanks to ComicMix for the original, and to insomnia for the inspiration.
P.S. Must-watch: Why We Don't Need Socialized Medicine
From the LA Weekly blog:
A new poster depicting President Obama as a version of Heath Ledger's Joker character in The Dark Knight has appeared in Los Angeles, according to rightwing sources...
The poster, which bears a very superficial resemblance to Shepard Fairey's famous Obama Hope illustration, has been pasted on freeway supports and other public surfaces. It has a bit of everything to appeal to the drunk tank of California conservatism: Obama is in white face, his mouth (like Ledger's Joker's) has been grotesquely slit wide open and the word "Socialism" appears below his face. The only thing missing is a noose.
Ah yes, we all remember that classic scene in The Dark Knight...
P.P.S. Nobody looked for a noose all those other times somebody put a politician in Joker makeup.
P.S. Later that evening:
In light of current events, this one seems worth reposting:
That was four months ago.
Told ya so.
Thanks for reading, Diggsters:
buried. artist/author is anti-semitic, racist, homophobic, and just otherwise an annoying conservative. don't believe me? go onto his website and read his other comics on spiderman, li'l obama, and barney frank...
Yes, please do!

And given the week's events, this oldie-but-goodie might tickle your fancy...
WARNING: YET MORE RUDE LANGUAGE
If you didn't grow up in the '70s watching Schoolhouse Rock on Saturday mornings, first watch this:

After the jump!

Israeli drivers in Rosh Ha'ayin were met with an unusual sight Sunday evening, when a man dressed as Spider-Man decided to use his superpowers to engage commuters sitting in evening traffic.
Several drivers on the scene called the traffic police hotline to report the superhero's unique participation in the traffic jam. The man leapt from vehicle to vehicle, occasionally attempting to lasso cars with an apparent "web" made of ropes.
A little bird tells me that if you download the file found here (SpideyObama.cbz) and open it with the shareware found here (or change the filename extension to .zip and open it that way), you will be amazed by the spectacular mediocrity found within. With great powerlessness comes great irresponsibility.
The great Batton Lash does it again (with a little help from yours truly). After the jump:
P.S. Feel free to post this on your own blog, but please don't hotlink it.
P.P.S. I totally forgot: Happy Birthday, Batton!
P.P.P.S. "I'm not quite sure if this is just crass or racist or both." Well, it's about Obama's own public statements. So of course it's crass! And it's drawn to resemble him. So of course it's racist!
P.S. Hannity is a thief.
Previous power-being-spoken-truth-to-by-William-Ayers here.
P.S. CNN is covering Ayers. As opposed to covering for him. I know, I can hardly believe it either. It's fun to watch Anderson Cooper sputter and stammer at the reporter, though, trying to come up with a plausible reason this isn't so bad.
(With no apologies to William Ayers)
More to come. Maybe.
(These are from Feb. '02, back when Wurtzel originally said that crap. The other day she wrote something stupid about Obama, which is the first time anybody's even thought about her since then, so Glenn Reynolds linked to the page that originally had these strips. I'd posted them via AOL, back when I knew even less about the Internet than I do now, and for some reason the page doesn't work anymore. So I'm reposting them here. Yay.)
P.S. In the interest of equal time, James Linville e-mailed me this link, where he claims that Wurtzel didn't say any of that stuff. (At least I think that's what he's claiming.) Who knows why he's telling me and not the Toronto Globe and Mail, but that's what he's asserting.

P.P.S. 2 months later (11/19) I'm getting traffic here for some reason. Well, if you like this, check out these.

Special thanks to my friend/self Kevin Parrott for knowing how to use Photoshop. To see a bunch of others or to build your own, go to Jay Pinkerton's forum.

These still make me chuckle a little bit, so why not trot them out again:

BELATED CONGRATULATIONS TO DAVID REES
KEEP STICKING IT TO "THE MAN"
Starting off with the hugest file, check out this stupid old minicomic with Superman and Batman exploring an alternative lifestyle. (Click the little panel there for an idea.) This gay guy I know said he actually thought it was touching in an emotional sense, so you're not allowed to get offended. It's a PDF file, so you need Adobe Reader to open it. But that don't cost nothin'. And it's zipped up with a readme file explaining how to print it out and fold it up, if it's not obvious already.
And as always, if you enjoy it... [Makes meaningful gestures over to the donation buttons]
