Ahhhh – being right feels so good

If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you’ll know that I have a real dislike for Shepard Fairey (the tagger who rode on the wave of Obamamania with his famous and fraudulent HOPE poster.) This phoney non-artist will be getting his just desserts, finally. And I love it!

The most parodied political poster ever! I love this one because I love the Marx brothers.

From James Taranto/WSJ:

“The creator of the Barack Obama ‘HOPE’ poster pleaded guilty Friday to criminal contempt, saying he made a ‘terrible decision’ in 2009 to destroy some documents and fabricate others in a civil lawsuit pertaining to The Associated Press photograph he relied upon to make the poster,” the AP reports.

What’s hilarious about this is that the poster-maker, Shepard Fairey, was the one who brought the suit, after the AP accused him, accurately as it turns out, of misappropriating its intellectual property. (The AP then countersued.) WSJ.com reports that “prosecutors are likely to seek some term of imprisonment in the case.”

Fairey has got to be hoping Obama loses his re-election bid, so he can get a pardon in 2013 instead of 2017.
