President Obama-Style ‘Hope’ Shirt With A Rorschach Twist Available Until Midnight


Barack Obama and Rorschach aren't the likeliest of allies.

One is the President of the United States, and the other is a sociopathic masked vigilante. One campaigned for hope, the other instilled fear. We haven't seen Obama's reaction to the threat of Armageddon, but we sure know Rorschach's thoughts on the matter - and they ain't pretty...
