Introducing Presidential Vimagi, Where Anyone Can Paint Political Cartoons for US Presidents

With elections around the corner and politics everywhere these days, I couldn't resist throwing some Erlang into the mix. Don't worry, I'm not about to start discussing my political opinions on this blog. You can find plenty of political commentary on other sites. Instead, I decided to create a sub-Vimagi for political cartoons: Presidential Vimagi.

On Presidential Vimagi, you don't write or talk about your political views. You paint them. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a painting is worth, well, you do the math.

To give you inspiration, I assembled an all star cast of American presidents, vice presidents and presidential candidates: George Bush, Dick Cheney, Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton, Mike Huckabee, John McCain, Ron Paul, Bill Clinton and Al Gore. They each have a profile and you can paint on their profile's v.boards. You can also become friends with them if you want to show your support.

Presidential Vimagi is still a bit rough around the edges, so please let me know if you find any bugs or issues. Feature suggestions are also welcome, of course.

Update: I decided to take the site down for now. It's too prone to vandalism and I don't have the time to constantly monitor it to remove the offensive stuff. It was a fun experiment while it lasted. Oh well :)

It's Barack! Also, I think Kucinich would make a nice caricature.
