Great and powerful Darth

The little cartoon creature says "one of the most popular presidents in history".

Just because the media says it is so does not mean it is so. Many previous presidents have hit high 70's amd 80's from time to time. Obama has not gotten out of the 60's yet.

But don't let me bore you with FACTS.

Question the Obama Mythology.

The cartoon questions Obama and you still don't like it. Your one-note tune is boring.

Did you ever hear of artistic license? Sheesh.

My point is that this is far from artistic license. Art can send powerful messages and opinions. Many people have told me this "most popular" myth as if it were factually supported somewhere.

Googling for this type of phrase reveals many so-called news stories CNN, etc. that proclaim this very thing contrary to reality.

This is exactly the type of viral false advertizing that Obama is an expert at. One of the main rules of spin-doctoring (propoganda) is to repeat the myth over and over until people believe it is a fact.

This cartoon does not question Obama - it blames a perceived slip of the holy mantel on someone else - where do I get hard-hitting questions like that when I do something wrong? Sign me up - I will never be blamed again!

Question the Common Mythology and do not trade the RNC myth for the DNC myth.

Question your ability to grasp the meanings of others.
