Since I only know what I see on TV and in the newspapers…
His Holiness Pope Obama I. He’s earned his place on currency with the likes of Washington, Lincoln, Jackson, and Jefferson. His stature allows him to print his own money, anyway. Might as well put his own picture on it.
I’d also like to see Blessed Mother Duckworth of Hoffman Estates (soon to be Saint Tammy, once canonized…er elected) on currency too. I hear she’s the real deal and not just your run-of-the-mill Illinois political party hack.
Lincoln, Reagan, U.S. Grant, Hastert, Dirksen, Kustra, Cheryl Axley, Dick Kay Snodgrass, Lee Arthur Smith, Ryne Sandberg, Reagan again, and a special coin to commemorate all the Bullsâ€™ titles in the â€˜90s.
I guess Lincoln is either too obvious, not funny, or disqualified because he’s already on the $5 and the penny.
