Barack Obama Already On U.S. Currency?

RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Barack Obama is so money – he already has his face on cash.

Political satire website Slick.com has issued a faux $3 bill with Obama’s face on it, which is a reference to the controversial New Yorker cover which depicts Obama wearing a traditional Arab headdress.

It’s dubbed an “Obamanation Note” and has the title “The Prince of Platitudes” right above Obama’s face.

The reverse side of the bill is emblazoned with “In the left we trust...NOT!” while a sign on the front lawn of the White House states that the building is “Under New Mismanagement.”

Creator Jesse Dalton says Obama is the perfect candidate for the satirical funny money because he’s an easy target.

He says Obama’s tendency to “flip-flop,” along with his rockstar appeal, makes him a satirist’s dream come true.

Says Dalton: “He has groupies falling at his feet and hysteria all around him. Ladies get the vapors every time they see Obama!”

Obama isn’t the only politician with his mug on money.

Dalton has created faux bills featuring Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Ross Perot, and George W. Bush.
