Oba Mao

A shop assistant folds a shirt bearing an image of U.S. President Barack Obama's face imprinted over that of China's late leader Mao Zedong, at a shop in the popular tourist area of Houhai in central Beijing September 21, 2009. The shop has sold thousands of products bearing the "Oba Mao" design since stocks arrived just over a month ago, the shop owner said.

Dang it. I was in Houhai a few weeks ago. I would have bought one if I saw it, though I would also paint a big circle with a slash through it in red.

we need to buy as many as we can now. i know, all we need is more imports but we can easily sell 50 million of them (the ones who voted for McCain). i think the Obamao administration is taking us into our own great leap forward.
