• "Oba Mao" T-Shirts a Hit in Communist China (Coming Soon to a Real America Near You)

    This is kind of heartwarming. It looks like even the most xenophobic of American teabaggers have something in common with the average citizen of communist China

    The Chinese have learned English from his speeches and celebrated the way he rolls up his sleeves. Now President Barack Obama is finally coming, and he's being greeted with "Oba Mao" T-shirts and a statue of him that bursts into flames…

    One Beijing shop owner wanted to see what Obama could do for sales. Liu Mingjie created "Oba Mao" T-shirts, with the president wearing the uniform of the Red Guards, who caused chaos during the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s…

    He sold hundreds of the shirts, to both foreigners and Chinese, until authorities told shops selling the shirts to stop.

    It's so sweet to see such disparate groups of people finding some common ground, huh?

    But, let's for a minute get back to that burning statue of Obama? How'd they get away with that in such a totalitarian state? We can't even burn Nancy Pelosi over here.
