    Get your Obama decorative plate now to place on your mantle right next to your prized Elvis on Velvet!

    I'm just about ready to now say I've lived to see everything possible in the form of mindless stupidty that humans are capable of doing!


    And yes, there is a TV commercial broadcasting actually selling these things. Somewhere between Billy Mays and Vince with the ShamWoW!

    Maybe we should all pitch in and buy one for D and TOS for a Christmas gift!

    Barack Obama being our next president is an historical event, which generally is celebrated with a commerative plate.

    Maybe the plate should be given out to the general public free of charge, based on our current economic status as a country.

    Not the best time to sell, but might make a nice Christmas gift!!

    Don't bother, I'm sure the mfg outsourced the making of these plates in China with young children chain to their work station :wink2:

    Anyway....I would have voted for "Lizard People" (like in Minnesota) before I would vote for a modern day Republican.....Any Lizard People plates ?

    The funny part about this is the other night I had fallen asleep on the couch watching TV and I woke up literally just as the commerical was Queing up and for the first 40 or so seconds, I thought I was watching some MadTV spoof or something. I then realize it was for real and fell off the couch LMAO.


    I don't deny the historical impact of Obama being elected and in his case this is more historical than the average bear to borrow a word from Yogi but I just think the collectable plate is just over the top crass commercialism. Now that I think about it, I seem to remember another President (can't remember who) having something like this as well and I still think that is to much. I've no doubt that Obama will become an iconic figure canonized in the Parthenon of heros with his own immortalization on velvet. He'll be in the Holy of Holies with Elvis, Jesus and MLK no doubt!

    As for the Joe Biden teacups. Are you kidding me! Come on man, you're smarter than that.

    Joe Biden Ginzo Knives!
