This year, unlike 2009, President Obama's inaugural committee is accepting donations from businesses and corporations. Despite looser rules about contributions, the inaugural committee is reportedly $10 million short of its $50 million fundraising goal.
What can you, a concerned citizen, do in these difficult times?
You can go shopping.
The Presidential Inauguration Committee's official online store is loaded with goodies that every Real American wants–nay, needs.
Cotton Throw Blanket, $165
You can, uh, throw it.
Ceramic Plate, $125
Good for Triscuits.
Medallion Set, $7,500
This is listed under "Essentials."
Golf Divot Tool, $15
What is a golf divot tool? It is a thing you can use to stab Republicans when they complain that the president is golfing too much.
