Creepiest Obama story yet
Twitchy has the pic of what appears to be a life size Obama tapestry hanging on the wall in our embassy in London.

Love the groveling by our embassy staff - such a "warm smile," eh?
I did a little searching and discovered that the tapestry is not new. It was created by an artist named Chuck Close and was part of a two-tapestry display in honor of Obama during the Democratic Convention at the Mint Museum in North Carolina.
What's really creepy about it is that it reminds me of every tin pot, banana republic dictator in the world with those huge murals and propaganda paintings on the walls of buildings always showing the thug smiling benignly. Orwell knew what he was talking about.
