Relax with the cool, rich flavour of an Obama 44

Obama 44 Granada Cigars has released its Obama 44 cigar to cash in on the popularity of America’s 44th president, Barack Obama.

Here’s hoping President Obama and this hand-rolled Nicaraguan cigar help to ease the growing hostility toward tobacco.

If the Obama 44 leaves a bitter taste, wash it away with a splash of Anarchy.

Since Obama is a smoker this should be a hot seller. If the cigarette companies were on the ball they would be running their factories wide open producing "Kent" cigarettes (the slogan was "you've come a long way baby") with black paper of course. The potential is unlimited and with his endorsement he could take a huge bite out of obesity as overnight, millions would take up smoking , giving a huge economic boost to the tobacco growing states and freeing up thousands of airline seats that the obese will no longer need two of. Is there nothing that Obama can't do ???.

Virginia Slims...not Kents.

It's kind of funny that the president who's been the furthest to the left in a long time supports tobacco. Then again, Clinton did too....
