In honor of the first historic trip of the first “Pacific President” to the Pacific; and

In further honor of the capitalist entrepreneurship of the Chinese people who have honored the occasion with the “Obama Mao” T-shirt; and

The Communist government of China having banned the “Obama Mao” T-Shirt as a sign of respect for the Yuan; and

It being resolved that the preservation of this artifact of kitsch is in the interest of mankind;

Now, therefore, by the powers vested in me,

It is hereby resolved that the Obama-Mao T-Shirt be and hereby is inducted into The Official Guide to Obama Kitsch.

Effective this 14th day of November, 2009.

So it is written, so it is done.

Update: No, Japanese “Obama Toilet Paper” will not be inducted into the Official Guide, which is a classy publication. (h/t HotAir)
