A journalism intern haunted by the ghost of Benjamin Franklin finds she is on a terrorist watchlist. When she confronts the unnamed Fed who is set to watch her, things get seriously, fantastically weird. There's [[GovernmentConspiracy government conspiracies]], a talking super-genius koala, and, oh yeah, forty billion undead pixies. Thanks to a tightly-plotted story and a good dash of humor, [[SugarWiki/BetterThanItSounds it actually works]].

* Badass: Almost everyone in the comic, up to and including ''Ben Franklin.''
** BadassBureaucrat: [[spoiler: After the Pocket President is revealed to the world, the surviving members of the program eventually become this.]]
** BadassGrandma: Rose Myers, the woman who taught the Fed everything he knows about espionage. Though officially retired, she hasn't forgotten how to hand out a bit of pain when the occasion calls for it.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Several agents in the Pocket President community made the mistake of thinking that the Girl was just a spoiled rich girl working an internship for a tiny newspaper. They were ''wrong.''

** SmallAnnoyingCreature: The Fed is ''so happy'' once Ben manages to make the Bitty Bush go away.



** ILetYouWin: ...But then again, it's revealed that he held back in their sparring matches.
*** He states outright that he knows its stupid, because she is still much, much better than him.
* IGaveMyWord[=/=]HonorBeforeReason: Why Lincoln allows the rogue ghosts to draw on his strength, even though he knows they're trying to start a civil war and it causes him actual pain.

* StrawmanPolitical: Surprisingly averted (most of the time). While the comic is heavily steeped in the politics surrounding government surveillance, especially electronic surveillance, it generally tries to present all sides fairly.
** The major exception is the Bitty Bush, which is one long TakeThat at UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush.

* FriendToAllLivingThings: Hope is pretty thrilled to have a pretty bird land on her finger... [[http://www.agirlandherfed.com/1.1102.html until Mike is shown with a whole flock attracted to him]]. Possibly a BrickJoke, as he previously mentioned that his partner collects birds.

** From ''Greek Key''; Picking a fight with Hope = Bad Idea. Picking a fight with Hope and Mike = Worse Idea. Picking a fight with Hope, Mike and ''Speedy'' = Worst. Idea. Ever.

* EmotionSupression: At the beginning, almost all of the people in the Pocket President program have some level of this to deal with it. [[spoiler: This was intentional by the people behind the program, to make them easier to control.]] Pat is still able to enter this mindset if he feels he needs to, although he even admits how damaging it can be.
