I also sent president Obama this very candid and personal letter.
At some point, the idea was to do something suggesting Republican operatives had been distributing a a documentary suggesting that Obama had been in the movie Ghost Dad, like that other thing that happened… But in hindsight, that seems really stupid, and the election’s over anyway. Either way, I still had this dumb little joke, finding some way to connect Obama’s book and that Bill Cosby movie, and I started thinking it would be more interesting to try to use that little kernel of an idea to go in a drastically different direction, and do something with very little to do with anything political, and just make something about human vulnerability. And how terrible Ghost Dad still is, in case you forgot. And also that I’m really bad at drawing Bill Cosby.
