#rsrh Barack Obama and the REVENGE OF CAPTAIN EURO!

I see that Ben Howe has put up the RNC ad over at RedState, but I didn’t want to pass by that soon-to-be-infamous talk show interview that the President did without highlighting one exchange:

If you’re wondering who that picture was of, originally*: why, it’s a picture of Captain Euro! …Yeah, I’m kicking it Old School; for those who don’t know, Captain Euro is a (justifiably) obscure superhero (primary superpower? …Umm, linguistics*) that the EU created in the late 1990s to…

To…

(pause)

As God is my witness, I don’t know what the goal was, there.  At any rate, the Right-sphere discovered the comic during the run-up to the Iraqi liberation; and – like many another Dear God, what is that thing?!?  out there – it stuck around in the background of the blogosphere’s collective memespace.  Little did we know that Captain Euro was actually born in the USA, and thus could run for President.

*Toby Dials, also of RedState, did the touch-up work.

**No, really.  Look, the damn comic’s mission statement was probably designed by a temporary emergency ad hoc bureaucratic sub-committee out of Belgium; what the hell did you expect, heat vision and the ability to shrug off a tank round?
