Maybe you thought Barack Obama's fake presidential seal was just a stupid gaffe, kind of like Mitt Romney's podium screw-up back in 2006. But no! It's much, much more than that. Mickey Kaus, take it away:
[T]he faux seal was a disaster not just for the reason
I gave (that it suggested Obama is "stuck up"). It also carried this
counterproductive connotation: that there is a separate Obama Nation,
grown up in opposition to Bush's nation. Obama Nation has its own
insignia and its own reality. It is somewhat alarmingly devoted to its
leader. And this blue tribe is about to completely conquer the current ruling red tribe. ... Voters didn't much like this kind of revolutionary swagger in the 1960s. They may not like it now.
Even without the Dylan link, that's some wild shit.
