I Called It

... Back in January


What I didn't realize/know at the time was that Shepard Fairey [the man behind "OBEY"] was actually a pretty big deal in the Obama camp and Rock the Vote.

Is Barack Obama the first President elected by low-brow artists, taggers, bike messengers and skateboarders*? That's a pretty cool thought.

"OK, Barry, the people of this country put you there; now do good things for us, m'kay?"

* Clinton doesn't count. They didn't vote for him ... they just didn't vote at all.

Apparently Obama would have 76% of the vote if Aussies were able to vote in the US elections. Hoping for some positive change to come from his election.
