Yep.  Bought 2 on the internets because I thought they were cool and the other 2 I got for donating money to the campaign.

Oh, nubbins.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

No.  Oh, Monkey!  Because when are you foreign types going to learn that Americans spend hundreds of millions of dollars on flag waving gee-gaws even when we're on the verge of economic collapse?

We are the Goebbels Generation!

See, you're kidding, but I have spent more money on Nazi paraphernalia then I have on any modern political candidate.

I don't see what the big deal is really.  In my opinion, this is the way we should feel about our President.  It's a good thing that people are buying shirts and wearing them. It means they're paying attention to politics in some way.  More people caring, even if it's in a superficial way, can't be a bad thing.

Well, okay, for the record, buying t-shirts and shit isn't what I'm bitching about.  It's the shrine shit.  The extreme stuff.

But, to address what you're saying there, Nubbins, buying t-shirts isn't caring or paying attention.  Superficial interest doesn't hold water.  That doesn't change anything.  In fact, it's even worse than no interest at all.  People go into this all agog and, when things go south -- as they always do in American politics -- they'll be so sick and fed up that they'll drop out forever. 

We should not be focused on the man.  We should be focused on our Congress, and our local responsibilities.

It helps, in this current case, that Obama has a sympathetic Congress.  Hopefully that'll be the result in 2010, as well.  Then we can enjoy four years with a strong president who isn't a fuck.  But what happens if we get a backlash in 2010 because, simply, we don't take the mid-terms seriously and we're not paying attention?  Low turnout = conservatism.  Obama's presidency is over if that happens.  And these superficial idiots will let that happen...because they don't understand beyond t-shirts and dinner plates.  And they won't be bothered to understand.

So...my last call of the day:  A member called, renewed, and then started talking about Obama...then she started crying and sobbing and saying how she was still so emotional about him winning the election and how he's going to save us all.

This is why comic books/superheros became so popular in the Depression. People will "cling" to anything that lets them get lost in a world of happy make-believe. Obama's the new comic.

I definitely buy that.

And if you still haven't gotten over his election, then you're a retard.

I'm still not over the fact that Bush isn't President. Every time I read CNN, I still get that little bit of surprise when the headline doesn't involve some amount of insane Federal-level corruption scandal or some burning of the Constitution by the Executive Branch.

I'm not over the fact that he was elected in 00.
