Cobby from South Africa sent this in just after election day: “…while this is somewhat of a spoof, it’s only in good humor. I am a South African and have been following the presidential race since before the primaries began and have been an avid supporter of Barack Obama from the beginning.” More about his (Kentucky Fried) inspiration inside.

I thought that the pic is appropriate in ways because the subject matter pertains to the fact that, like in the song, ‘We’re all living in America’. Also, Colonel Sanders is something of an atypical white, conservative republican in my mind so all the more fitting, if only as a joke. I’m elated that America chose Barack Obama as the new leader of the free world as the outcome has a huge effect on the rest of us and I’m glad that Barack Obama came out on top and that I was able to witness such an historic event.
Cobby actually sent in a different design a day earlier – which will put everything in context for those missing the KFC tie-in. Regardless on of his reasons, we agree that the newer version is a stronger, bolder design. Good Work!
