Politics In Gotham

Vanity Fair snarkily contradicts everyone yet again. Like their spoof New Yorker Obama cover , where they turned the joke on John McCain, they're now opposing the somewhat popular opinion that the Dark Knight is actually George W. Bush reigning over post-9/11 Gotham in metaphorical disguise . This time, W's the Joker . Not as heady and political a parallel, true. But the art is aptly creepy.
