Have you ever noticed that Barack Obama has the same naso-labial folds and lips as Herman Munster?

Obama Munster

I’ve also noticed that his lips are kind of purple. I attribute that to his smoking.

DISCLAIMER: Please don’t misconstrue this posting as being negative or as a condemnation. I have always been and will continue to be a fervent supporter of Herman Munster.

Here’s a link to an article about how to draw Obama without being accused of being racist. It also confirms that I’m not the only one who has noticed his tinged lips:

“One of the most interesting things about Obama’s eyes is the slight blue tinge to the flesh below his eyebrows. It’s also visible on his eyelids. It’s as though he’s wearing a bit of eye shadow. Don’t know if it’s actual blue pigmentation, or just the effect of light bouncing off the skin stretched against his eye sockets. But it adds a nifty touch whenever I’m drawing Obama’s caricature in color.”
