Obama Tattoo, Anyone? Obama Thong? Action Figure?
Some couldn't wait for Fatty's special offer to get "tatted up" for Obama. Twenty-nine-year-old Saginaw, Michigan, Obama-supporter Samantha Cook invested 90 minutes and $200 to have the president's face inked to her upper arm. T.J. Wells, in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, opted for a three hour tattoo marathon that ended with Obama's face on the back of his leg.
Different strokes for different folks, you know. Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas decided to show his support for Obama through a tribute tattooed on the fingers of his left hand. Arenas had one word inked on each finger except the thumb, reading: "Change we can believe in."
Of course, the ultimate Obama love fest hasn't taken place in tattoo parlors or in shops stacked high with Obama memorabilia.
The real "Obama orgy" of blind loyalty took place in the U.S. Senate last week as Obama's top advisers swept through the confirmation process with the Senate "watchdogs" playing lapdog to the new president. Questionable policies, tax evasion, terrorist pardons, and Constitutional ineligibility were all overlooked by Republicans and Democrats alike in the rush to "show the love" for the incoming team.
The only thing missing was some fresh ink.
