A German toymaker has paid the ultimate tribute to presidential hopeful Barack Obama by immortalizing him in the form of a collector’s doll. But the maker of the mini-Obama admits that it was tricky to get the skin tone correct.

Obama DollExpert German dollmaker Marcel Offermann has garnered much media attention in the past with his dolls of famous people such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Pope Benedict XVI, the Dalai Lama and Lady Diana. Now he is paying tribute to the latest political figure to make history: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The Barack Obama doll is available in a limited edition of 999 and costs €139 ($216). The 36-centimeter (14-inch doll) sports a black suit, complete with a Stars-and-Stripes lapel pin, a white shirt and Obama’s trademark sky-blue tie. Offermann, who runs a doll hospital in the western German city of Neuss near Düsseldorf, explained that he chose the sky-blue tie because Obama wears it at 80 percent of his campaign appearances. “We originally wanted the doll to have rolled-up shirt sleeves but that wasn’t practical,” he told SPIEGEL ONLINE Tuesday.

However it was difficult to replicate the attention to detail given to the clothing when it came to the doll’s head. Offermann explained that he was forced to adapt an off-the-shelf black doll’s head for his tribute to Obama, which is his first attempt at making a black doll.

Offermann did, however, lighten the standard skin color of the doll’s head. “We tried to make it even lighter so that it would look more like Obama, but then it didn’t look so good,” he said. “So we said, let’s stick with this skin tone.”Related articles by Zemanta

So Barack ObamaMessiah is the Democrat Party’s anointed one. The road block that finally clipped the wings of a Clinton from getting what that terrible twosome wanted, another shot at screwing up the country.

Not to mention a few interns along the way.

So what does the ObamaMessiah do on the very day he clinches his date with destiny? (or infamy if things prove out as I suspect they will)

Why he commits ignorant error #3,498,092 by naming three nitwits as some type of vetting service to the campaign for the purpose of selecting a vice president.

His choice of Eric Holder, Jim Johnson and Caroline Kennedy raises three more reasons to question ObamaMessiah’s judgement if not his sanity.

Eric Holder was the #2 man under Janet Reno during the Clinton years an era in Justice Department history that can be arguably called the most corrupt ever.

Holder was the point man that in effect gave Slick Willy the go ahead to pardon Marc Rich who at the time was on the FBI’s ten most wanted list and later was discovered to be heavily involved in the U.N’s. Oil for Food scandal in Iraq.

Jim Johnson come to this search committee with a fair amount of baggage himself if for no other reasons than he continually picks losers as VP candidates. Johnson helped John Kerry pick John Edwards in 2004, and Walter Mondale select Geraldine Ferraro in 1984. That’s not exactly a good resume if applying for a job on a VP selection committee but I guess mediocre is good enough for ObamaMessiah.

Johnson is a former Fannie Mae CEO and that firm was steeped in scandal during his tenure.

And finally that brings me to Caroline Kennedy and her addition to this “illustrious group.”

What she brings to the table I haven’t clue #1 other than she’s a KENNEDY and part of that whole Camelot myth that surrounds that clan of drunks and assassinated politicians. Other than that she has zero experience with electoral politics.

Put another way ObamaMessiah in selecting Caroline has chosen star power over substance. A pretty consistent problem for the man that learned his politics at the knee of some of Chicago’s old style politicians that are more flash than substance and in far too many cases corrupt as hell.

And I have to note with just the slightest bit of hilarity ObamaMessiah’s minions should take a closer look at what they are following lemming-like, instead of the hopey and changeful candidate he’s every bit the consummate Washington D.C. politician embracing wach and every slimebag that will somehow help him get his foot in the door of the Oval Office.Related articles

After viewing the above video ask yourself just how much of a cash outlay did al-Qaeda need to bring down the World Trade Center. (estimated to be somewhere between $400,000 and $500,000 to plan and conduct their attack.)

By making “defense spending” a center point in any argument about Iran’s threat shows his complete lack of tactical, strategic and geo-political understanding of the threat both Iran and al-Qaeda pose.

On the world stage ObamaMessiah is a neophyte, a mere babe-in-the-woods, who needs to be placed back in the Senate where (hopefully) he can do less damage than he could from the Oval Office.

ObamaMessiah!Well if there was any doubt in your mind the loony-left lemmings following the Obama train to the White House, or at at least attempting to, think their candidate IS The Messiah – check that, make it The ObamaMessiah – this image should seal the deal for you.

The image is part of an endorsement by the Willamette (OR) Weekly online magazine.

Just so we’re clear, the image doesn’t recall MacArthur’s trudge up the beach at Leyte Philippines making his promised and triumphant return because The ObamaMessiah would never place himself in that position. (He would have wanted to “talk his way back in” not make a fight of it.)

The image clearly depictes The ObamaMessiah emerging from the sea as if some, well… Messiah to save the world from… “four more years of Bush!”

The loony left. Just like a bitch wife, you can’t live with them and you can’t live without them.

Wonder if The ObamaMessiah can find out where Hoffa is buried?

Sen. Barack Obama won the endorsement of the Teamsters earlier this year after privately telling the union he supported ending the strict federal oversight imposed to root out corruption, according to officials from the union and the Obama campaign.

It’s an unusual stance for a presidential candidate. Policy makers have largely treated monitoring of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters as a legal matter left to the Justice Department since an independent review board was set up in 1992 to eliminate mob influence in the union.

Looking the other way seems to be The ObamaMessiah’s modis operandi.

20 years of “hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil” while sitting in the Reverand Wright’s church pew and now we learn he is playing endorsement patty-cake with one of the historically corrupt organizations on the planet.

That’s some candidate the Dimocrats have!

As the video clearly shows The ObamaMessiah’s lunacy is hardly surprising when you’re IQ level fails to get you past the the staffers that vet contestants for Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader.

Instapundit reader Jeff Cauthen suggests: “Somebody should ask him to name all 114 US Senators.”

That about sums it up, he’s definitely a couple chickens short of a church picnic.

IMF says US crisis is ‘largest financial shock since Great Depression’

According to the dickwads at the IMF America’s mortgage crisis has spiraled into “the largest financial shock since the Great Depression” and there is now a one-in-four chance of a full-blown global recession over the next 12 months, the International Monetary Fund warned today.

The US is already sliding into what the IMF predicts will be a “mild recession” but there is mounting pessimism about the ability of the rest of the world to escape unscathed, the IMF said in its twice-yearly World Economic Outlook. Britain is particularly vulnerable, it warned, as it slashed its growth targets for both the US and the UK.

Puzzle me this “international monetary experts,” (not!) if the U.S. can only expect a “mild recession” how in fickin’ hell does that equate to “the largest financial shock since the Great Depression?”

How in a country that has over 70 million mortgage holders, of which ONLY approximately 900,000 have defaulted, constitute a “crisis” on the scale they are predicting?

It doesn’t, and these nitwits are just that, nitwits. And dipshits!
