A fanatical love for the president-elect has become a near requirement for everyone not living under a rock. But somewhere between the start of Barack Obama’s campaign and the end, it also became mandatory that Barack fans create the craziest, weirdest and creepiest tokens of their affection to stay in the "We Love Obama" game. We, merely amused by some products and completely horrified by others, have assembled a list of the items that we never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever wanted to see our future prez’s face plastered across.
Hope-on-a-rope: We’ve never really gotten the concept of soap on a rope to begin with so this little contraptio n, which features our boy Barack’s visage carved in soap, completely baffles us.
Besides the crazy, maniacal grin they’ve chipped away on his face, we’re not really that thrilled about lathering up with a politician.
Wallet (Sold out..sorry!): Help us out here: seeing Barack’s face every time you reach for your debit card serves what purpose? Exactly. We love to see him give speeches, shake hands with dignitaries and hug on Michelle, but seeing his face all around our, uh, Washingtons, is not on our political agenda.
Camcorder: Before recording keepsake videos, you’ll need a camcorder–check. The carrying case–check. Batteries–check. Barack’s smiling face–check? Nothing says "this is a moment to remember" more than seeing Barack cheesing from behind the lens, we guess.
Thong: Where do we begin? It’s a thong. With Barack’s face on it. And the phrase "Show me your ‘O’ Face’" under that. It’s just wrong, on sooooo many levels.
Lip balm :This idea was obviously so nice, it had to be done twice. Everyone knows how hot our future prez is, so the idea that he’s smoothing and shining a pair of kissers isn’t much of a stretch.
Coaster: This we just can’t wrap our head around. In the midst of enjoying a beverage, we sit our glass down on Barack’s face? No.
Bandana: We can only imagine that this cloth tribute to Barack was inspired by rapper T.I.’s song "Swing Ya Rag.” Could our commander-in-chief’s face be as hot a brand as Louis Vuitton?
Tattoo: We knew this was coming. If girls are so enamored with Kimora Lee Simmons’ sexy kitten that they get the Baby Phat logo tattooed on their bodies, how could we expect anything less from Barack enthusiasts? One small problem, though: The image barely resembles Barack.
