A Poster too Important to Leave to the Market

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is giving away copies of a poster (pictured right) of Barack Obama, which it describes as “an original piece of art for those closest to the movement to fix health care.” Of course, for this crowd, to “fix” generally means to bring government in.

Fittingly, SEIU is limiting the giveaway to “only ONE poster per person and address.” This led the Libertarian Party to challenge SEIU “to live up to the promises behind government-run health care and offer everyone in America unlimited access to as many posters as they want without increasing their costs.”

However, I wouldn’t expect SEIU — or anybody who would commission such a blatantly sycophantic portrait — to get the irony.
