Funny, scurrilous and completely forgettable: This is political satire at its best. Or worst. I'm not sure which.

Synopsis

What if every farfetched conspiracy theory about Barack Obama turned out to be true? Two reporters for the The Daily Caller received an unsolicited manuscript in the mail, the diary of a former Obama administration political operative. What they read stunned them. "The Lizard King" describes a White House where the reality is more surreal, and comically bizarre, than anything its most fervent enemies have alleged. Tasked by David Axelrod with debunking right wing rumors about the president, the narrator embarks on a journey that takes him from Washington to Moscow to the tribal areas of Pakistan in search of the real Barack Obama. His findings leave him shocked, his political ideology in tatters and his understanding of the world forever changed.
