So I guess it's inauguration day today, which means that right now as you read this President Bush is probably frantically running from room to room of the White House, panicked that he accidentally packed up and shipped his car keys to Texas. There is also the possibility he is playing in a large cardboard box.
And that's it for the Bush jokes folks. I've actually been pretty good about avoiding them I think, and I won't miss their tediousness in the world of political humor. But there's just something about the image of a grown man tumbling down a staircase in a cardboard box, smashing into portraits of better presidents, you know?
And just as the sun sets on Bush-jokes, the sun starts to shine on jokes about insane Obama-fandom. From the handsome and sturdy example on your right, to the 18 others I've selected below, there's a whole host of lunatic things lunatic-people have made to celebrate their love of Barack Obama. Let's cast a mature and not-at-all petty eye on some of it, shall we?
Obama Clothespin Doll
This one's actually pretty cute, and compared to some of the other obaminations to come, pretty true to form. The limitations of the clothespin framing device do render the president as being pretty in need of a bathroom break though.
