Cashing in

I get it. Barack Obama is popular—for now, at least. And you'd like to make a buck or two off of that. But I'm getting sick and tired of this kind of thing, which I've been seeing from several companies as of late...

Did you stop and think that maybe you might be alienating just a few customers by doing this? I mean, it's not as if you're being exactly subtle about what you're doing. People (around 48% of them) might notice.

And if anybody else can remember a new President being shamelessly marketed like this within out lifetime, well, I can't think of a way to end that sentence, really.
