Do your weekly Baracking here

A whole new kind of stimulus package

It's perfectly understandable that some people would want to try to boost their businesses by taking advantage of President Obama's popularity. But some people, as evidenced by the photo below -- it's a real sign, I swear, I shot the picture on my phone last night -- might be taking it a little far. If you do want to Barack your car at this garage, though, it's in New York City, on 25th Street between 6th and 7th.

Much more appetizing is a somewhat similar offering from the Hallo Berlin sausage cart, also in New York. They're offering a Barack Obama Democracy special: Two sausages with cabbage, fries and a meatball. We're considering it for lunch today.
