The far right notwithstanding, Obamhostility seems to be ratcheting up on the left.

This photo-illustration at The New Statesman (accompany this article) is the unkindest cut of all, made even more so because the idea isn’t even that original. Going strictly by the morph, the indictment runs pretty deep; I’m guessing there’s less than 40% of Obama left, driven home by the unforgiving erasure of his most defining features (as in, goodbye ears). And then, there is also the aspect of racial annihilation, most notably by removing Obama from his hair.
