You Can Own A Piece Of History! [Nice Deb]
— Open Blog

Anyone seen this commercial, yet?

“His confident smile and his kind eyes are an inspiration to us all…” (?!)

It's enough to make Kim Jong Il blush.

Is it just me? I find the fact that there is actually a market for all of these Obama items, which include Obama Xmas ornaments, Obama bibs, Obama perfume, Obama wall clocks, Obama O-Force One model airplane etc., to be a bit creepy. The Obamania has extended to beyond the silly season.

Crossposted at Nice Deb where I've been trying to keep track of all of the Obama cult products.

Too bad there is no Obama toilet paper. I'd use nothing but, for the next four years.

I'm so sick of this shit. All the fucker has done his get elected. And he couldn't even do that on his own. All this Obama worship crap is a movement to marginalize and delegitimize his opposition. To try to lock in the weak minded and uneducated. "See Obama is cool! He's a winner"

What I'm really pissed about is its suddenly cool to be an American and patriotic again. Like it wasn't before Nov 4th.

I'm so disgusted. But what I really want to do is crush the media. Because this is really their fault. Its the fourth estates professed job to bring the issues before the American people. Not run interference for the prefferred candidate. I know the media is made up the laziest elements of our society not on welfare, but this is enough. Hell crackwhores have more pride than these blumkin givers.

23 I saw the commercial, and ordered a dozen plates.  I paid for them with my commemorative 9/11 Liberian Legal Tender $20 bills.  With the exchange rate, I came out way ahead on that deal, let me tell you.

Heh - my wife had tons of those things, carefully preserved in plastic bags in plastic tubs in the garage. I finally talked her into letting me get rid of them - we sent them to Iraq for soldiers to give away to Iraqi kids. The Iraqi kids will probably wipe their asses with the Beanie Babies but at least they're out of my house.

33 Maybe Obama is so popular with some people for the same reason rap music and reality shows are. Any assclown can do it! Evidenced by the fact that so many assclowns actually do chant rap and appear on reality shows. Sort of like the lowest common denominator president.

Photos are one thing.

Did FDR and JFK have their own perfumes? Christmas ornaments, baby bibs, cd's with music dedicated to them, xmas ornaments, wall clocks, children's books written about them before they were even elected....I could go on and on.

No, we have not ever seen anything like this.

And I hear they're issuing a Obama medal soon. It is worn to protect true believers from working to pay for mortgages and gasoline.

I am no fan of Obama and did not vote for him. But commemorative plates, coins and celebratory sets of everything from steak knives to lawn gnomes follow every Presidential election.

I personally own no such baubles but a collector friend of mine has inaugural plates of the Obama type being discussed for Ronaldus Magnus and both Bush's. My friend also has Clinton plates from 1993 and 1997, but holds them in lesser regard.

There will be plenty to complain about the Obama Nation that is fast approaching, but the cheesy merchandising of his likeness is neither unexpected nor altogether undeserved. Creepy but not a hangable offense.

I think for sure we wont see the hero worship stop at coins or blow-up dolls, but give the dude his plates. Within 1 year, we'll see all kinds of stories telling us of polling showing Obama to be the single most popular person in the world, more recognized and beloved than the Pope.

This will be reinforced throughout and across the media and it will become socially unacceptable to publicly dislike or criticize his Obamic Majesty. Schoolkids will be especially vulnerable, as unionized liberal teachers will make sure that their students understand the greatness of The Obama.

"Dolf"is jealous with envy. He never got his own plate and he was the original Hope and Change narcisiss.

60 There's a "Black power" stand, on the sidewalk outside of my office building. They are selling the most God-awful Obama items that I've seen,,,,t-shirts with the Obama family portrait on the front....in colored (not the racist use of the word) studs. Large mirrors with Obama and Martin Luther King staring at each other in pensive poses. Large "WE DID IT!!!" towels with Obama and Michelle. Etc, etc. I'm considering buying one of the more hideous items as a Christmas Winter Holiday gift for my moonbat brother, who is still orgasmic about the election....

But it all started before he had even finished the primaries. He hadn't done anything yet. This 'cult of personality' crap is being crammed down our throats.

It goes beyond anything we've ever seen. Seriously. I've been keeping tabs on this stuff for awhile.

62 Our family loves these ads! The way the people interact with the Obama plate is priceless.  From the man who takes a reassuring glance while doing his paperwork, to the kids that actually seem to be chatting with it.

We always imagine a follow up ad, with the Obama plate strapped in the passenger seat on a family trip, or on a float in the pool.
It isn't just a plate, it is a friend.

As for merchandising after every election...I do not recall seeing anything this nutty when W was elected. I do own, and they are still in their original box, a few items I pourchased from the original W campaign; buttons, etc... My favorite item, however, is my set of "W" rock glasses.

89 I've seen quite a few black folks wearing Obama T-shirts with his face plastered on the back and front, complete with a quote. I haven't gotten close enough to these people to read the quote nor do I want to. They were doing this even before he won. The hero worship is mind boggling. And unsettling.

I think I'd be more justified wearing a shirt with Reagan's mug on it since he, you know, accomplished something, but I still wouldn't do it, much as I admire him. I don't feel comfortable wearing real people's faces on my clothing. And Che shirts make me want to punch the person wearing the shirt.

I just can't wait until after the inauguration, when he assumes his full and rightful title:

"His Excellency President for Life, Grand Mullah, General Secretary, the Most Righteous Dr. Barack Hussein Obama, Professor of Fatally Flawed Constitutional Law, Order of Lenin, Lightbringer, Unicorn Tamer, the One and True Leader, Messiah Supreme, Lord of all the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea, and Conqueror of the Evil White Fascists in America and the Bushitler Klan in Particular.

Impressive, yes, but it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

Are we taking bets on how long it'll be before the masses are disillusioned by their hero? Or will it be never and anything bad that happens is still Bush's fault? (I'm thinking the latter.)

One question to which I don't get an answer (when asked of O supporters):

"Not a one of you cared about anything in Obama's shady history because CHANGE trumped absolutely everything.  Now that it is obvious that Obama has eschewed CHANGE what exactly do you support about this man?"

131 The Obama commemorative plate & coin commercials are interspersed with 9/11 commemorative silver $20 bills with a 9 and 11 (which adds up to 20, Joe Biden) on the reverse side.  This is America and people will make a buck on shit like this, creepy or not.  I'll just stick to commemorative sports memorabilia.

132 Wouldn't it be a delicious slice of schadenfreude if, after all the Obama worship, that some constitutional technicality prevents the Messiah from ascending to the office of president?

I wonder if this memorabilia would become very valuable or completely worthless?

Posted by: csdeven at November 29, 2008 03:58 AM (8cxzy)

133 Commemorative sports memorabilia?  Obama will find a way to inject himself in that market too.  He has already said that he wants a Division 1 college football playoff system.  Just you wait, college presidents all across the country will bow before Obama's throne and grant him his wish.  We'll have the Obama Bowl for the national championship game.  We'll have official Obama footballs then.  Just imagine the possibilities.

147 Fricken Franklin Mint commercial going on right this MINUTE as I read!

Then there are the video sales (by CBS?) that have somehow melted into the movie channels and other non-network and non-news channels I now watch instead of network and/or news.

I believe the commercial this thread talks about also says, "The day the world changed!"  I saw it while I was cooking dinner, heard that, and almost puked into the potatoes I was mashing.

The good news is all this stuff is falling flat with a lot of us.  Looks just silly to a lot of us.

By the way, this cult stuff isn't just a BIT creepy, it's humongous creepy; and it's been going on for some time now.  I was pretty creeped out by it months before the election.

150 I don't think we have seen anything like this before, either.  There was that business where a school book (literature, I believe) included 15 pages on Obama, and that was months ago.

And to date, one school changing its name to Obama Elementary, and another school planning to.  The first school hopes to have the name change complete by December.  (At a cost of 3000 for the sign and stationery.)

Since when were schools named for presidents BEFORE THEY EVEN BECAME PRESIDENT?  Or even president-elect, to get technical about it.

This whole thing is absurd, and unprecedented.  The good news:  He's oversaturated, even before he takes office.  Not only with these cult items and behavior, but also through his own efforts, like the "Office of the President Elect" speeches. 

I think even his followers just might get a little sick of his self-love.  You know, the old, "We made you and we can take you down" thing.

It is very creepy and we've seen it before-though only on old German film reels. No doubt he will change the Constitution to keep himself pres. for life and any other thing he wants to take the law unto himself. And who would stop him? The Democrats that are having orgasms being so close to a Supermajority? Or maybe the cult followers that think he is God?

It's getting surreal how almost identical the situation is. He stole everyone elses ideas, looks like he went back 70 years to steal Dear Leader as well
