“His mouth is slightly pursed, and a vein ruts downward from his hairline to the corner of his brow, which seems ready, microscopically, to lift. On his face, as I read it, there is a struggle between a deep and earnest respect for even the least palatable aspects of his office and that plainly evident sense of irony that has accounted for much of his cultural appeal over the past eight years. In a certain kind of comedy, he’d look into the camera and offer a shrug.” Vinson Cunningham • New Yorker
