These are awesome. The artist is pretty hot, too, which is always a plus.

Now we need a U.S. History Tarot.

Too many fools to choose from. I'd give the Emperor card to FDR in honor of his four terms.

Knave of Cups? Ted Kennedy.

Anyone ever been to Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind in Chicago? If you do (and you should), check out their Hall of the Presidents--similar concept, with equally good execution.

That is a really fine FPP for those of us who are historically minded; thanks very much. It would be even better if it didn't remind us of how poor so many of the presidents have been. (Especially lately.)

I find the text alongside the painting of James Monroe to be most interesting...

He is most famous for the Monroe doctrine, warning Europe not to try to dominate or colonize the Western Hemisphere.

How times have changed!
