HE'S ON FIRE! President Obama, VP Joe Biden, and Sarah Palin are featured in the latest version of NBA Jam, released by EA Sports. Kotaku reports:

Continuing a tradition set by the original versions of NBA Jam, which included political figures like Bill Clinton and Prince Charles, EA's latest game in the franchise will feature some more contemporary characters, like President Barack Obama and Sarah Palin...

These characters aren't there to make up the numbers, either; they're as fully-realised as the actual NBA players in the game, both teams with their own uniforms and home courts, each player packing unique facial expressions based on actual photographs. Dick Cheney, for example, has a "Darth Vader snarl".
