It seems like Obama's presidency will descend into goofy memorabilia and obscure pins when it's over and out.

Yes, a whole line of shoes:

- Bush's likeness would, fittingly, go on the soles of loafers.
- Rove's likeness would, fittingly, go on the soles of wingtips.

Saw an ad on TV yesterday for a minted coin with Obama's face on it. It's not official US currency but they must be making a buck off his name and face. What was it PT Barnum said about fools and money?

They also sell freshly "minted" chocolate coins. They have a mint in the center that says "Yes we can." Or, if you don't like chocolate, you can just buy a box of the mints--they call them Achieve-mints.

LOL, and the deluxe package would include a GWB target to throw it at.

They also have the Deluxe Dubya Bathroom Set...

- 6 rolls of Dubya 2-ply toilet paper - with his face and the caption 'Bring it On! ' imprinted on each sheet

- a 1000-flushes Toiler Cleaner that says 'Mission Accomplished' when the toilet is flushed

- a bathroom rug with a picture of New Orlean's 9th Ward on it and the caption ' Who is Katrina ??'

- a classy urinal deodorizer with Dubya's face on it with concentric circles
