Mt. Desert

The Obama’s arrived in Bar Harbor, Maine for their vacation last weekend. They visited several places in Maine including Acadia National Park and  Cadillac Mountain. However, the one part vacation in Maine that garnered the most media attention was the Obamas’ visit to a small ice cream shop in Maine called Mt. Desert Island Ice Cream.

It’s not the ice cream that President Obama ordered (coconut cone for those that do care), but it was the logo on the business sign.

Some conservative bloggers have insinuated that Obama’s visit to the ice cream shop was prompted by the shop’s logo. The logo is an upright black fist clenching a spoon, which closely resembles the clenched fist that was adopted as a symbol of black power in the 1960s.

One blogger even went as far as to suggest that Obama chose this ice cream shop to send out a message to his “core radical base.”  Even though he’s a powerful man, I highly doubt that this much thought and deliberation went into deciding to go to this very ice cream shop. It might just be a mere coincidence that the logo from the ice cream shop just so happens to look similar to the black power symbol. But of course, people are prepared to jump to conclusions and point out our nation’s president as a radical black power activist.  Maybe he just has a sweet tooth?
