And, yes, some of George W. Bush's more ardent fans had the three-fingered W salute, but that didn't really catch on. (Of course, it's hard to start a trend when you're wearing a straw hat and dressed like a dork at a political convention.) And Bush never gave a speech to a football stadium full of people. Again, this isn't about political positions, it's about visual imagery. (C'mon, post-modernists, you should know this stuff. Your intention is not what matters. It's the interpretation that matters. Already, the McCain team is having a field day with Obama's speech in Germany and all those magazine covers.) Perhaps Obama supporters should stop calling Republicans fascists long enough to go pick up a history book -- or even an art history book -- and stop themselves before it's too late.
Of course, the fact that it looks like a big fat zero (or possibly other things) might also hinder chances of it catching on.
