It's strange, my first instinct these days is to assume any cool thing like this is in fact a piece of contemporary art and thusly will not be for general purchase. In this case I was proven wrong. Granted, I'm left with a lot of complex thoughts regarding what art is in this day and age.....Also, Bill Clinton as The Werewolf had me laughing in an out loud fashion.

A friend of mine lost his late-night talk show on the local radio station because he interviewed someone who claimed he'd seen President Obama "morph into a Reptilian".

the same station that uncritically plays shows claiming that john of god can cure cancer by sticking things up your nose. apparently only certain wacky stuff is ok.

My friend collects modded action figures, like the ones Sucklord makes. He also has an action figure he bought of Obama pleasuring himself. He's going to love these.

These are so neat. There's been a lot written about how the rise of different monsters in the collective consciousness can indicate fears about certain things, and I love how they've lined them up so neatly. Barack the Vampire, the perpetually foreign, too sexy other; Bush the Zombie, unthinking follower, mindless consumer, sexless and inherently corrupt. Werewolves are associated with rampant uncontrollable animal desire, especially sexual desire, so making Clinton a wolfman makes perfect sense. I suppose you could say Lincoln is not his own man really any more, but exists as a pastiche of images, speeches, and ideologically charged histories. I particularly like Mummy Regan, dusty and preserved, a continuing curse on the political landscape.

I believe at this moment Taft is toottling around in magic bathtub as one of the Undead Presidents in Deadpool.
