I want my samurai Obama

How can the president best tackle the financial crisis? With a gleaming katana blade, of course!

Now and forevermore, (or at least for the next four years) we will no doubt be drowning in ridiculous Obama kitsch products that no sane person would desire.

But a collectible Obama action figure wielding two katana swords? That might be a required purchase. (Warning: May take a little while to load.)

The Obama collectible action figure is brought to you by Hong Kong's DiD corporation. A cool photo-set can be found here. (Make sure to scroll down.)

Thanks to MutantFrog Travelogue and Matt Alt for the links.
