Obamessiah Suck-Up of the Day

The Corner's Yuval Levin points to this local ad for an Obama commemorative plate:
My in-laws (life-long Democrats) and I were already laughing out loud by the time the announcer says "his confident smile and kind eyes are an inspiration to us all." Seriously, that’s what it actually says. Operators are standing by.
Plate website here.

Yes, Obama has a "right of publicity" that, in most states, would give him the ability to halt, or share in the profits from, such sales. But newly elected politicians rarely sue over this sort of thing; those selling the plate probably plan on disappearing after a relatively short sales cycle.
