Really? REALLY? Doesn't this seem just a tad tacky?

Why do you feel it's tacky? I find the idea amusing. I can only imagine our former president doing something similar. They'd run over budget because of how many takes they'd have to do in order for him to say the words right.

Can't be any worse than when Tony Blair was in The Simpsons.

I don't think it could get any more awesome than that, personally. Not only is the former Prime Minister an anime fan, not he's a seiyuu, too!!

Hell, Al Gore was the First Emperor of the Moon in Futurama...and that episode may have been created while he was the sitting Vice-President. Very Happy

And all of a sudden, I have an interest in this title now. Here's hoping feathers will be ruffled.

Bush was ok with prepared speeches, and Obama is not much better than Bush when unprepared. I hear Obama doing lots of "uh.. uh..." during interviews.
