The first line of this post is what I would have made the title if I didn't feel the need to be somewhat discreet.

"There is a Barack Obama dildo. You can purchase it in either blue or gold, and if you stare at it long enough, you will begin to question the morality of free markets. Is a smiling Obama phallus really what Adam Smith envisioned? And the dildo’s just the beginning; scour the Internet long enough and you’ll be able to purchase just about anything with the president-elect’s likeness or name on it. So, with this in mind, we’ve created a slideshow of the worst online Obama kitsch we could find."

Hmmm... well, the free market I'm noticing here is magazine publication, and The New Republic is looking pretty desperate.
(Only the second "slide" is NSFW — and only mildly.)

By the way, the Obama dildo is wearing a flag lapel pin.

And this is for those with hope in their souls.

And, once again, women buying in to the ideals of "hope" and "change" in the bedroom only set themselves up for disappointment.

So - going along with your tags - an we now say Obama is a tool?

Someone once commented that the Carter post-presidency has been so great, it's just a shame that there had to be a Carter presidency preceding it. (This is when Jimmy Carter was building houses for Habitat for Humanity, rather than denouncing Israel as an apartheid state.)

Likewise, I think that the Obama pre-presidency has brought hope and inspiration to so many people, it's a shame that there has to be an actual Obama presidency afterward. What a disappointment.

They missed one. My childhood friend, a prodigy who taught me to play chess when I was 9 - he was 7 - has launched a product to capitalize on the "audacity of soap"!!!!

Sex "tools" require work.

I think I want one to go with my Sprio Agnew watch.

Does it insult hippies at the top of every hour? If so, I want one!!!!!

Both items work best on the nattering nabobs of negativism.

Was the Baby Jesus Butt Plug similarly an indictment of the free market? Somehow I missed that article. (Link goes to a blog criticizing Google for "promoting" the product, not the actual product page.)

What next, an Al Franken douche bag?

Oh wait.

I was just surfing by but can't resist:

He's a one man economic stimulus.

Couple this fetish for The One with the post about "Wouldn't it be wonderful if there were no more religion." and you have the fall out that is coming from removing all Faith in God. The spiritual part of our lives [ call it collective unconscious or energy fields] will find something to worship. The vacuum caused by our rush to remove good spritual food will not mean an end to our messy attempts to feed our spiritual side. Instead it results in a great hunger that leads us to eat anything, no matter how strange and poisonous. Someone alert Crack Emcee again. As I recall the Japanese Emperor, as was Hitler and the early Roman Emperors and the Pharohs of the world's first empire all had one thing in common. They were publicly worshipped as Gods. Under our 1st Amendent, how will the UN be authorized to establish its one world church. They already claim authority to regulate every use of The kingdom of the Air.

Another way to get screwed by your government.

Look at the ass on the BlueBarry--must be all the basketball.

You've got one wrong vowel and left out a "t."

Being a bit pedantic, but Adam Smith didn't care--he didn't invent capitalism, rather he described how the free market works. (Though I'd argue that in many ways he ended up describing how all markets work.)

That aside, this type of thing is exactly what the free market envisions. Too bad our politicians have so little faith in the market--while certainly not perfect, it does a damn sight better job than any politician manages.

If he returns our country to what is was back circa 1996 and wipes out WASP and Jew financial malignacies and restores half of normal American's life savings?

Then - Raise the Obama dildo on high!

@AlphaLiberalHe's a one man economic stimulus.

I have to drive by to say that this joke would be better if instead you said: Now this is what I call a stimulus package.

*rimshot*

Hope it's only painted on, that could hurt.

"...flag lapel pin."

Is that for those needing extra stimulus?

Was there such a thing as Bush Bling?

Yes, in the pre-waxing era.
