Have been wondering where you can buy Obama merchandise? Yeah, me neither, but if you want some, all you need to do is head over to the NBC Universal store! Woo hoo! Obvious political support for one candidate for everyone!
If you’re a fan of all things Obama, NBC Universal’s online store has no fewer than 29 options for your buying pleasure — from a shirt with the president’s picture proclaiming “YES WE DID”…to both of his books…to a special inauguration DVD…to a refrigerator magnet of the first couple.
And don’t forget the Barack Obama Action Figure — yours for $15, plus tax.
I wonder if they have a special pair of flip-flops? Obama seems to love flip-floppin’.
Some analysts say it’s good business, that NBC is simply offering what people want to buy. They point out that the adult version of the “YES WE DID” shirt ($25) was so popular, it sold out on the Web site.
But others note that there is no merchandise available that shows support for the other side of the political aisle. And they question whether the political bent of the items on sale are healthy for a corporation that operates an impartial news outlet.

Yeah, you won’t find the Palin action figure at the store.
The article goes on to present sides that say that a news organization should not be playings sides, and another side stating that it is just good business sense…Obama sells.
I wonder if hey drool bibs for the so-called journalists.
