    Obama Trading Cards

    By Kyle | January 13, 2009

    Wow. I thought the whole point of bubblegum cards, which I collected obsessively for many years, was that you didn’t know which player was going to be in which pack. But a whole, 90-card set for one person? Not even Reggie Jackson had that. Question: if there were an April Fool’s Day prank-press release that imagined some particularly absurd new form of Obama worship, how could you tell? (H/t: NRO.)

      I had to click on the Topps Cards link just to see that this was for real with my own eyes.

      Another in a long line of tedious and inept attacks on Obama from Kyle, with, as usual, the efficacy of a three-week-old baby pissing in the ocean.

      I, unlike Hunter, have a baby and can report that their piss-efficacy, whether in the ocean or anywhere else, is admirable.

      One thing Hunter knows lots about is tedious and inept attacks.

      Here’s another absurd example of Obama worship:

      Each card has a different Obama position on the same subject …

      (Can Hunter objectively analyze anything remotely critical of The One?) C’mon, you’re a pseudo intellectual, right? Give it a try! It’s fun.

      Why is it an attack on Obama? He has nothing to do with it, more an attack on his strange unbridaled over the top devotion.

      My question is why has no marketing saavy person made an Obama brand Kool Aid. Instant comedy right there.

      On a random side note I hope he talks about global warming at his -40 ascension to the throne ceremony (innaguration). I’d give my left nut for some global warming right about now.

      Brandon — it’s “climate change” now … the umbrella term for any day that isn’t 78 degrees and sunny.
