“‘Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at [Barack] Obama’s nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future,’ says Rick Husong, owner of The Loyalty Inc.,” a Los Angeles “creative agency,” according to Washington Whispers. Please note–The Loyalty Inc. produced the image above and is pushing this new “salute” independent of the Obama campaign, and if the Obama campaign is smart, they’ll stay away from it.
Put your hands in the air and make a big zero! There’s absolutely nothing creepy or cultish at all about “a movement where even while walking down the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for Obama.” How could Republicans possibly mock that? As they used to say in Scooby-Doo cartoons, it’s so crazy, it just might work! (Historiann wonders: is The Loyalty Inc., with its clumsy, Orwellian name, a Republican plant? I’m just sayin’…)
