Shepard Fairey gets pooped on in this summary of the DNC convention by the editors at Taki. I think it’s worth noting that Fairey assumed this administration would be down with Obey’s vandalism brand but no.
Even cool presidents who play basketball like to arrest people for bullshit. A lot of graffiti annoys me but I don’t want these people thrown in jail. Besides, most of what Fairey does while you’re sleeping improves its surroundings. The fact that he almost went to prison for making a painting of a picture is a sign we are arresting way too many people.
While everyone is prattling on about gay adoption and fake racism, not one politician has discussed the millions and millions of people behind bars.

AN OVERDOSE OF HOPE
The Democrats are done weaving their web in Charlotte, and wow, what a web it was—an intricate lattice of multicolored Silly String that included everyone and said nothing.

All we know after watching it is that we all need to go forward together. ALL of us. Together. United. As one. No dissent. And no cutting in line. Forward. Together. MOVE it!
We’ve all moved forward out of the Stone Age and progressed as a society to the point where black men can make death threats against Barack Obama, Hispanic female delegates feel unafraid to say they want to kill Mitt Romney, and everyone’s cool with it! Because politics is all about being cool. As actor Kal “Kumar” Penn—whose nose is buried so far up Obama’s ass that it’s sticking out of his mouth—enthused from the convention sidelines, he “felt like it was cool to be engaged in politics” the first time he laid his fawning brown eyes upon Barack Obama. What a cool thing to say!
