Kitsch capitalism: Barack Obama is the new Che Guevarra

Orangeyousoda-6pack Ever since a Time journalist snapped that photo of mass murderer and executioner Che Guevarra, his face has donned everything from t-shirts to coffee mugs to cigarette lighters. You can buy Che wristwatches, and you can buy Che hats. You can even buy Che Cola.

The lucrative Che industry is, however, seeing a significant challenge to their empire. U.S. president Barack Obama is beginning to look more and more like the world's leading face of kitsch. The latest addition? Orange "you glad for change" cola from the Jones soda company.

Obama stupid, that's how stupid. The general populace doesn't reason when it votes: it looks to catch phrases and charm, and the guy they hate the least. Shallow, shallow, shallow.
