LOS ANGELES, CA, USA A poster by an anonymous artist ridiculing President Barack Obama has been causing world wide controvery; the poster shows the US president posed as revolutionary Che Guevara above the caption "marxism", apparently in protest of Obama's health care reform efforts and stimulus spending.
The "marxism" poster has rapidly spread across the internet; it caused the website that first displayed images of it to crash and tops Google's "Today's Hot Trends" list.
When pressed for a comment, Obama stated, "I've never been called hot before. I'm liking the whole messy hair with beret look. This could really help my image and couldn't hurt my approval rating either. I think I'll stick with it."
First Lady Michelle Obama is reportedly delighted with the President's new look.
