Who Do You Trust?

WHO
do you trust to save us from
the Terrorist Threat (tm)?


BARACK OBAMA?

Obama wades onto an enemy shore, stripped for action
and armed with nothing but Hope
and some hastily cobbled together domestic policies!



JOHN MCCAIN?

McCain's principal weapons in the War Against Terror (tm)
are Grit and a daily can of spinach.




You vote for whomever you want...

but I'm voting for:








STARMAN!

Starman? Count on my vote. But who is his running mate?

Scipio said...

Who else?

Etta Candy.

David said...

Prez has my vote.

Dr. Manhattan said...

No love for Hillary C? She's either the Black Canary or the Jean Loring of politics.

PS: is that a real Obama pic or a good Photoshop?

Scipio said...

Yes, that really is Obama. He's a stud.

Allan said...

While I would agree that it's about time a member of the superhero minority rose to the level of the highest office in America--Starman remains just another white dude in a suit (albeit a very different one than the usual political uniform).

No, my nomination would have to go to Mr. Terrific. Unfortunately, even though Mr. Obama's success has proven that being a person of colour is no longer the impediment it once was, my candidate's professed atheism is, I'm afraid, a hurdle he can never overcome.

Not that it matters. Being Canadian I'm stuck with either one of those Alpha Flight lame-os or that short guy with the claws whose adventures give fanboys inexplicable boners.

You Americans are so lucky....

Gustavo said...

Starman-Etta? That's the ticket. Provided, of course, that in four years Etta runs herself.

Etta Candy: Leader of the free world. That's a story I'd like to read, no that President Luthor nonsense.

Scipio said...

Woo woo!

Derek said...

Mr. Terrific '08!

Who would be his running mate? Dr. Mid-Nite?

I know Luthor and Etrigan have both run for president at one time or another, but has DC ever done a full election with their heroes? Political parties, campaigns, media coverage, stump speeches, attack ads, the whole shebang?

Oh! And we could vote online for the winner!

... I'm the ONLY comic read that would appeal to, aren't I?

rlsims said...

Holy GRIT! That's still being published? How do they get distribution without convincing kids they can get rich selling it door to door?

Richard said...

Hubba Hubba Hubba, Money Money Money, who do you trust?

Me? I'm giving away free money?

And where is the Batman? He's at home, washing his tights!


Sorry, every time someone says "Who do you trust" in a comic related area I mentally launch into Joker monologues.

Scipio said...

Richard,
I hope you're aware that that is a reference to a game show of that name...

Nick said...

re-elect PREZ, 08!

SallyP said...

Oh my goodness! Obama is quite the manly man!

I don't know about a running mate, but I do know that I want Amanda Waller for Secretary of State.

totaltoyz said...

He's run for Mayor of Gotham enough times...
COBBLEPOT FOR PRESIDENT IN 2008!
Vote for the evil you know....

Anonymous said...

Traitors! How can you all turn on President Lex huh? Luthor guides the nation through a war with some space-god-thingmy and yall forget as soon as the economy hits a tiny recession. And when a nut in leather and a big blue-eyed ubermenchen tells you he's evil you all drink the Kool-Aid and turn on President Luthor.

I hope Zod runs next. He's friends with Luthor I hear...

Brushwood said...

Let's switch the ticket around so we can have a Candy-Knight in 08.

totaltoyz said...

Hey, maybe Simon Templar could be Starman's running mate!

Knight/Templar in '08!

If not for Starman, we'd all be running around shirtless in matching lime turbans and pajama pants, speaking lime-turban-wearing-white-guys-ese. He's got my vote.

-Mike Loughlin

garnet said...

As a running mate Space Cabbie would help carry some of the outlying regions.

dan said...

I think Starman's "cosmic rod" might cause him some campaign problems.

totaltoyz said...

By the way, it should be "Whom do you trust". Objective case.

Scipio said...

Jesus Christ, Dale, do you think I don't know that, for pity's sake? I'm a frigging Classicist.

As I said above, it's a reference to the title of a gameshow, which they didn't happen to title grammatically, so dig up Johnny Carson and complain to him.

But give ME and the rest of us a rest.

totaltoyz said...

Sorry, no intention of offending. I just feel I have to do something with this English degree I paid so many thousands for.

I hadn't known it was the title of a game show. Johnny Carson, really?
