This is rather amusing.

Obama’s press secretary decorates home with Soviet propaganda
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and his family are featured in a worshipful profile in this month’s Washingtonian magazine.
It’s the sort of adoring journalistic exercise reserved for only the most handsome of the power elite. In it you can find out details about the Carney dog (a cousin to presidential pooch Sonny!), and how much the press secretary’s tie costs ($135).
But keen observers may notice the kitchen decor in the photo: Soviet propaganda posters. They really are the perfect pop of color whether you are the dour and sincere Nikita Khrushchev or the cheeky press-wrangler for a president who is constantly accused of being a socialist himself. –Michael Brendan Dougherty
I’m sure they just admire the … efficiency and technique of those posters, much as we would read, say, Gramsci or Alinsky and conclude, “Yep, they were pretty good at what they did, alright!”
But… then again… I wouldn’t decorate the most used room in the house with their images.
Didn’t one of Pres. Obama’s closest advisers cite Mao as a hero?
I think we need a permanent revolution against this sort of politician.
