An overdose of Obama merchandise

We can truly understand the feeling;

Am I the only person who finds the glut of Obama merchandise, well, gross? It has moved from memorializing his victory to trivializing it. There are commemorative newspaper front pages and magazine specials and plates and coins. There are also condoms and cake molds and gym shoes and dolls and comic books and a thousand schlocky t-shirts. (His Senate seat may even have been for sale.)

Many of these things reached even Canada (but I haven't seen the condoms...). But why to see it negatively? I think it's a good example of your ability to find the opportunity and make business - and that's the only right way how to fight the crisis .)
Take care
