Hope, Change, and Overkill


It started with posters. Then we saw flags, tee shirts, neckties, earrings, and doggie shirts. Amusing, or at least funny, in a creepy and overly-idolizing way. But it’s all fun and games until someone comes up with something that makes you wonder what the heck is wrong with certain people. File this in the “Going Way Too Far Overboard” department.

Obama doll

In case you are unclear on the concept, this is not a doll. It is a “fine collectible to be enjoyed by adult collectors.” And each one (you’re expected to purchase all five) will set you back $29.99 plus $6.99 shipping and service charges.

Exit question: will anyone actually buy these hideous little tchochkes? ?

    OMG! They are so Unique! Instead of Pooping, every now and then they blow an Obama speech out of their butts!

    And they are so lifelike! After the blow the speech out of their butts, there’s a lingering stench that so reminds me of just about every Obama speech I’ve heard.

    Don’t forget the optional accessories! You can buy many little different hats for them. You’ll want to get together with your friends to play a real game of “Cap and Trade” to collect ’em all!

    I wonder if it comes with a Cris Mathews brown-nose doll. Pull the string and it says “I wuv you obama!”

    45 to 85 year old Black women will.

    One of the biggest demographics that watch Tiger Woods playing golf are black women with children or grand children.

    Not that is is worth tailoring commercials towards them.

    Isn’t it a little unsettling that the “Yes We Can” doll’s shirt has faces of Bob Dobbs on them? “Yes, we can slack?”
