I believe it’s supposed to be Barack Obama as a romance novel cover star. The Great Hope Mongerer as the Great Love Mongerer! I somehow missed it when it came out in Willamette Week more than a month ago, but Gawker introduced me to it Wednesday in a piece on how to make fun of Obama without coming off as a douche. Anyway, it could be just me, but if this were on a black velvet canvas and being sold along the highway I would totally pull over and buy it. Dig the white horse in the background! The roses rising out of the water! I still don’t know what that is in his hand. Candy bar? Belt buckle? Bar of soap?
Oh, it’s just so many kinds of wrong it’s right!
