Just … Interesting. You Know?

For just $7,500 this magnificent bling can be yours.

President Barack Obama’s inaugural team is opening an online and brick-and-mortar store to sell souvenirs including a commemorative poster by famed artist Chuck Close.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee launched the online store Thursday. A retail store a few blocks from the White House was scheduled to open Jan. 11. The goods, ranging from $2.50 rulers to $30 champagne flutes to a $7,500 medallion set, also will be sold at some Washington hotels around the Jan. 21 inauguration.


However, food stamps not accepted. Sorry.

Not too original there, Barry.

  1. The Soviets made better medals. Obama looks like a zombie, and Biden looks more like FDR than himself. The silver looks like lead, and the bronze looks like it had the Michael Jackson lightening treatment and wound up a sickly yellow-gray. The overall design is pedestrian, certainly nothing special. Quite apart from who’s on them, I wouldn’t even begin to consider shelling out $7500 for these things even if money was no object. Of course, I’m not the target audience—that would be the celebrity crowd and assorted limousine liberals. I wouldn’t be surprised if our own Cretina, whom I expect is breathlessly planning her wardrobe and overall presentation for the Inaugural events, bought a set (or more).
