Apparently, Our Dear Leader doesn't like any symbols, no matter how traditional, that may be currently used by "radicals" (read: Tea Party).
Not only that, but thou shall not make any comedic image of Our Dear Leader lest you be sent to the re-education camp.
People have been making fun of presidents since George Washington quit after his second term. What spooks me the most about Obama is the cult of personality that emerged since he began his presidential campaign. I've never seen anything like this in our country within my lifetime.
Obama may have said he's not a dictator, but he is certainly acting like one.
