MSNBC displays “Pope” poster in style of Obama “Hope” poster. Ping to Today show list.

The iconography of this administration has forever ruined some font styles for me. I get a bad visceral reaction to them now. When Obama was running for office the first time, my daughter, who had been a history/art history major, remarked on the creepy nazi-like style that his campaign was using.
