See you in the unfunny papers

Yeah, it's not like this is going to be incredibly stupid or anything:

A Chicago-based comic book publisher's latest offering recasts U.S. President Barack Obama as "Barack the Barbarian," president of Kickassistan.

Devil's Due Publishing announced "Barack the Barbarian: Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli," which is scheduled to hit the shelves in June, will also feature fictionalized versions of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President George W. Bush, the New York Post reported Monday.

"Join Barack, Sorceress Hilaria, her demigod trickster husband, Biil, Overlord Boosh and Chainknee of the Elephant Kingdom," the publisher's promo for the series states.

Tellingly, Barack the Barbarian's nemesis isn't an elderly wizard named "Mack Kaine" or something like that, but is instead a certain woman wearing glasses and a wolfskin cape, which suggests that even the idiots who write stupid, gimmicky comic books like this know a little more about the nature of politics than the GOP primary voters that forced a RINO down our throats last year. Yeah.
