Um … This Character Looks Nothing Like Michelle Obama

with 18 comments

From the press release:

BELLINGHAM, WASH. (November 11, 2008) — The life of America’s future first lady, Michelle Obama, will be the subject of the latest chapter of Bluewater Productions’ ongoing “Female Force” comic series. The book will follow Obama, a Princeton- and Harvard-educated lawyer, from her youth on the South Side of Chicago to her community, civic service and private-sector career successes through the 2008 presidential campaign and election day. The book is scheduled for release in April 2009..

“Mrs. Obama is a dynamic force and one of the most influential women in the world,” said Bluewater Productions President Darren G. Davis. “Her potential influence on future policy decisions makes her a fascinating figure to feature.”

Michelle Meets Jay, Jay Meets Michelle!

with 10 comments

The venerable Mrs. O will be making an appearance on Jay Leno tonight. With eight days left of campaigning, Michelle Obama has been everywhere this October working to jazz up support for her husband. From the stump to cuddling Barack lovingly after every debate, Michelle has taken her super helpmate action to the max.

And if I ever stop being lazy, I’ll doodle a picture in honor of her with Michelle cast as Ororo Munroe, aka “Storm,” an X-Woman who really should have her own movie if Halle Berry hadn’t screwed up the part by being absolutely wrong to play a 5’11” African glamazon who just happens to be Queen of Kenya when she’s not saving the world. (How someone so fierce could be made so boring is beyond me.)

Besides, Barack seems like Ororo’s kind of man. Half-Kenyan/half-American, smart, aspiring to the highest office of the land …

Wait … maybe Michelle Obama IS Storm! Check for her personal affects for brown eye contact lenses and hair dye!

The plot thickens.

That said, here are some pictures of Mrs. Michelle “Ororo” Obama at recent rallies in Pittsburgh, Penn. and Akron, Ohio.

Baby kissing! Awwwww!

To see the full cartoon click here at Sinfest. To hear the original jam “Office Space” style, click here. (I heart that scene!)

And here’s a YouTube parody featuring the past presidents of the United States, Clinton, Bush and Bush. Personally, I only consider Bill Clinton, Pimp of America, and GWB, the War Machine OG.

Thanks to Greg Fuller for the tip!

Nerd Girl: Series #1 "Remember College?"

*Yes. That is a Que Dog in his underwear with a brand on his chest, gloves and a scarf. He is a regular feature of the comic. His name is Curtis. To see the comic that preceded this one, click here. And yes. Those are references to Star Trek and an old skool Toys R’ Us commercial.
