"What does it mean to live in America today? If you know there's no right answer to that question, you'll want to read 'Barack Hussein Obama,' a book about you; about your country, your family, your president. 'Barack Hussein Obama' is not a graphic novel. It's neither a biography nor an experiment, but a whole, fully realized parallel America, a dada-esque, surrealistic satirical vision that is no more cockeyed than the real thing, its weirdness no more weird, its vision of the world no more terrifying."

The President, his family and his closest colleagues (Biden and Clinton) are here in name only, as they're just a jumping-off point for a series of surreal and apolitical one-page gag strips, executed in deliciously ratty art.
