Natch. Mykeru, Subgenius extraordinaire, actually puts his camera to worthwhile uses.

Nice.

Say, General, where can a gal get some of those flyers? I would love to plaster the area in front of the hindquarters, er, headquarters of Move America Backward, er, Forward, located in Sacramento, just a few blocks from my house.

I didn't see the flyers at your store or a download link -- maybe I missed it?

MFA needs to feel the Chickenhawk Roosting Area love. bawk! bawk!

“Pseudoconservativism is among other things a disorder in relation to authority, characterized by an inability to find other modes for human relationship than those of more or less complete domination or submission … The pseudo-conservative is a man who, in the name of upholding traditional American values and institutions and defending them against more or less fictitious dangers, consciously or unconsciously aims at their abolition … [He] sees his own country as being so weak that it is constantly about to fall victim to subversion; and yet he feels that it is so all-powerful that any failure it may experience in getting its way in the world … cannot possibly be due to its limitations but must be attributed to its having been betrayed.”
–Richard Hofstadter, The Paranoid Style in American Politics and Other Essays, 1965.

That's beautiful.

General, I'd eat a mile of human dung for one kiss from your sweet lips. And I mean that in the most heterosexual way possible.

Brilliant!!! A prize to the first person that slaps one of those on a freeper's head.

Uh, wow. I just did that for a lark and am surprised by the response. The sign doesn't appear in the OYE shop because I just made the graphic as of yesterday and the effort got me a spot as an OYE contributor.

"Photoshop or for real? Either way, it's beautiful.", some people asked on Atrios.

Full disclosure: The photos of the North face of the White House are legit (although they probably got ripped down 30 seconds after I left). The South side is 'shopped, only because where I pasted the sign, which was behind one street, one walkway and three fences, which is as close as one could get that day, you couldn't see the White House.

I will make a downloadable version of the sign in a few formats for your printing pleasure.

not to nitpick, the idea is brilliant, but you need a period on the last sentence.

Take two, they're small.

The war seems to have no end, why should that sentence?

Simply brilliant. Well done!

Since the president's followers seem to be zealots, I think all he needs to do is issue a nationwide call for supporters of the war to enlist. He could be more specific and call for the college republicans and all supporters under the age of 27 to enlist for starters, then as more are needed he can expand the call up. These people are believers, so they will follow where he leads...not.

This very much reminds me of the Meese is a Pig campgaign in DC in the summer of '88. Those signs were plastered EVERYWHERE around the city. Reagan replaced Meese as Attorney General that same year.
