Obama and the Joker

I'm sure everyone has seen the Obama as Joker poster, right? Well, it concerns me; but, it concerns me for reasons that the media has not brought out yet.

When I was a child, I was very into comics and graphic novels. I learned how to read on those. My favorite comic were the various Batman series that were out there. I bought and read every one that I could get my hands on.

One Sunday I was going through my grandparents' attic, and I found an old box of comics that belonged to my uncle (I think they were his). And I remember reading a Batman comic about the Joker. The Joker was killing/assasinating political figures in Gotham City. Yes, it was dark reading for a child. But before each political figure was murdered, a picture of that person AS THE JOKER was nailed up on telephone posts.

It's been years, and I've never seen that comic since (I think I was all of 7 years old when I read it), but I remember that plot line. I really, really do.

And I'm wondering . . . are these posters and pictures assasination threats on President Obama?

Does anyone else remember this plot line in the old Batman comics? I can't be the only one . . . and I'm rather sure that's what I read.

Of course, my childhood memory COULD be mistaken.
