Obama Takes Page from Arianna Playbook?

Rolling Stone‘s Politics section has an ironic story today by Tim Dickinson on President Obama seeking unpaid designers for a new jobs poster.

An excerpt: “Folks at Obama campaign have taken a page from the Arianna Huffington book of economic exploitation and called on ‘artists across the country’ to create a poster … for free.”

Funniest line: “To this list, let us helpfully suggest adding the tagline of San Francisco designer Mike Montiero: ‘Fuck You. Pay Me.’” Weirdly, Montiero supports the campaign and is a donor even though he finds the situation well, ironic.

The Obama campaign had no comment for Dickinson.
