To view the icky stolen version currently deployed upon the hapless public, read the USNews story. If ever there was a case of “whatWERE they thinking,” it’s this latest ugly bit from the Obama campaign — which, I agree with a number of comments all over the internet today earlier, it is suggestive of (please exercise extreme caution when/if searching out this term if you don’t already know to what it refers) “g-o-a-t-s-e” (or, otherwise, a grotesque image of a man gripping his exceptionally distorted-by-abuse arse).
A number of additional parodies are found on the following sites, along with a lot of other links and comment references to related material. This is, perhaps, the worst gaff or else self-revealing admission I’ve yet to see from the Obama campaign, long may it fall away like the waste it’s referencing.
(The new Obama salute was stolen from Star Trek’s “Space Hippies” episode)
