Introducing the Barack Obama Bobble-Head! - Denver08

by: rich

Mon Aug 25, 2008 at 17:03:31 PM EDT


I went to the hotel where we have to go to get our Blogger Convention Credential. Got the credential, so I’m all set for tonight.

On my way back, I took my time walking down the 16th Street Mall, taking pictures. Denver has pretty much become Obama-Town. You can buy anything Obama.

Including buttons.

Shirts.

Shot glasses.

An Obama Yearbook.

There’s an Official Obama Store.

This car here is most definitely a labor of love.

There were also these people who are obviously not happy about the Obamania taking over the streets.

Anyway, what caught my eye in the middle of all of this Obama Consumerism was this:

The Barack Obama Bobble-Head. I plunked down $24.99 for my new mascot. He's quite heavy and Made In China.

He’s sitting right next to my computer as I type.

I’m going to take him with me everywhere I go in Denver.

Next, I’m going to track down lpackard, who is rumored to be inside the Alliance Center next door to the Big Tent.

Oh oh oh!!! (4.00 / 4)
I want a "Yes We Can Bitches" t-shirt!

And did you really pay $24.99 for that thing? Obama supporter or not, I think you got hosed. Just keep it away from Mr. Destructo - remember what he did to your Austin Powers bobblehead?


Austin Powers (4.00 / 4)
is so 1999...But I will be sure to keep my new mascot away from Mr. Destructo.

One wonders (4.00 / 3)
if it says "Yes we can, bitches!", as in addressing bitches and telling them "Yes we can!", or "Yes we can bitches", as in The Bitches Who Can.

One little comma, so much trouble.

Things that make you go hmmmmm... (4.00 / 3)
I'll be up all night pondering this, Stormy! (smile)

I remember those guys from the University of Wyoming. Like clockwork, they would show up once a semester to inform me that I was going to hell. I told them I appreciated their concern, but I was pretty sure that I was going to be okay. They never responded.

The vicious altitude has gotten to you, Rich. First, the bobblehead goes with you everywhere, next thing you know you're thinking how beautiful it is and how great a "home" you could make there. In one month, when you're finally acclimated and all the delegates have gone home and the first snowstorm of the year is yowling outside and you realize that it won't stop snowing until June at the least. . . that's when you realize that you were yet another victim of Front Range Delusionary Syndrome.

Finally, if I don't get a Yes We Can Bitches T-shirt, I think I'm going to explode from longing. Medium, Rich. Medium.
