    The Obama Art Report has more info on the Alex Ross Superman/Obama print that was just released.

    “I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do if I caught one. I just *do* things. I’m a wrench in the gears.”

    Yep that sounds about right.

    looks more like Alice Cooper.

    Actually, that looks like W’s dad.

    Speaking of clown-like political figures: Ted Stevens Indicted!

    This is highly disrespectful.

    The Joker deserves better.

    Good day to you.

    Alex Ross (of comic book renown) did some lovely takes on our dear soon to be retired president.

    As a Vampire.

    And with his true love.

    I’ll bet GW would love the signed original.

    Why so serious?

    If you didn’t tell me that was Bush, I wouldn’t have known.

    I suppose it’s a caricature, though, so I dunno.

  14. trr says:

    Without being told, I would have never guessed that that was supposed to be George W. Bush. The mouth is definitely wrong.
    Try again.

    No, no, no. GWB is Batman, not Joker! At least according to the Wall Street Journal…

    If only the last eight years was just a bad movie.

  18. Tenn says:

    Tak-san, your second link is especially horrendous!

    I see Bush there.

    But much agreement with Stefan Jones. The Joker and Mister Ledger deserve better.

    Shriek! Man, I just know this is going to give me nightmares. The sight of this! I can’t bear to look at the eyes. Can we have a monkey-faced piglet chaser?

  21. skramble says:

    Bravo! he certainly is an arch-villain.

    now that I’ve seen this, I’d like to see a realistic looking photoshop attempt. I think that would really hit home with the average citizen. Unfortunately its a little beyond my photoshop skills. Anyone?

    check out Drew Friedman’s PATTON OSWALT for the cover of Royal Flush http://www.royalflushmagazine.com

    Ok this needs a compliment of Obama as Batman and McCain as Two Face.

  24. netposer says:

    I’m glad that’s not Obama. I’d be pissed and outraged.

  25. oscar says:

    Cheney as The Penguin?

    I know, not remotely original.

  26. Gary61 says:

    Bush as Joker?
    Nope, I don’t see it ….
    From everything I’ve been checking out about der new Batman movie, Heath Ledger (and the script) really portray the Joker as a psycho, real mental issues, etc.
    Bush doesn’t seem to have mental issues, he’s too dumb to understand what he’s done is inherently bad, while the Joker relishes in his utter badness.
    Bush would be better represented by a spoiled little 5 year old brat, with a snotty nose, who constantly whines ‘It’s not my fault!’ ….

    BUT – that’s just my opinion.

  27. Cupcake Faerie says:

    The Joker is an evil criminal mastermind. Bush is an evil criminal ,but I don’t think anyone would confuse him with being a mastermind. I think he’s maybe closer on par with the Hamburglar.

  28. noen says:

    You know, fifty years from now people will still be doing this stuff. Bush’s legacy is secure.

  29. spencerluck says:

    That’s an insult to the joker.
    Dubya is nowhere near that smart.
    If you took away 30 IQ points from and inverted the moral compass of Forrest Gump, that would be our president.

    +Where’s Cheney as “The Penguin”???
