Ok folks, I’ve been listening to this so-called Health Care Summit all afternoon, and the continuous droning of President I-Gotta-Be-Me at the end of it is about as much as I can stand.
There will be a ton of post-game analysis on this farce, so I’ll leave you to read them on your own. Mine can be summed up in this picture, which for me, says it all.

Old and busted: Obama Commemorative “Historic” victory plates that sold for $20 now $2 at Big Lots
Just got back from Big Lots while making my weekly Arugula and Wagu Beef run and they had a big stack of handsomely boxed limited run Obama commemorative plates for $2. They used to sell for $20+S&H on TV. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Even though they were placed on an endcap at the front of the store, it didn’t look like they were moving.
Anyone want to wager this rather embarrassing remaindered stock vanishes very quickly due to an “anonymous” bulk buy?

JOMers suggest buying them for:
- SUPPORTERS OF O! CHRISTMAS PRESENTS
- FEEDING THE CAT
- SKEET/TRAP SHOOTING (I’ll add – send some to Dick Cheney – sure he’d love that!!!)
Sure they will add to the list.
