I was so pleased with Creative Loafing's Obama-rides-a-unicorn cover (left), which graced our election issue.

Something about a presidential candidate going bareback on a mythical creature — look, Ma, no hands! — that gives you just a bit of faith in the guy.

I mean, if he can lasso a unicorn he should be able to rein in Wall Street, find peace in the Middle East, make the transition to clean energy, eliminate the budget deficit and win the respect of cowboys everywhere.

Then, this week, Young Thomas Wheatley passed along the deflating news that we weren't alone in a breakout of obamaunicornitas.

It seems LA CityBeat took the concept one step further by dismounting the Messiah off his high horse, so that he could frolic with the animals (left). I gotta admit that I kinda like it.

At the same time, if unicornitas has now gone bi-coastal, I really am concerned that expectations for an Obama presidency have gotten too high.
