President Obama is using a brand new font for the 2012 campaign. A BuzzFeed reader points out that President Obama's new typeface is Revolution Gothic, a style inspired by retro Cuban propaganda posters.

Obama press secretary Ben LaBolt emailed this response: "Your GOP operative should have had the courtesy to stay sober before noon, and BuzzFeed should go back to labeling cat slideshows." Burn.
