Claire "The Joker" McCaskill


Hours before the U.S. Senate vote on health care late last night, Heath Ledger-esque posters of Senator Claire McCaskill went up on telephone poles and lampposts across the metro region. Blogger GatewayPundit is curating sight'ems.


Similar caricatures of President Barack Obama showed up in Los Angeles and other cities this past summer. The creator? An apolitical, bored University of Illinois student.

Will Claire get her own Batman T-shirts, too?
