Today’s stocking stuffer suggestion for liberals is something that I purchased immediately upon seeing it in 2008, the ultra-provocative Obama Chia Pet.
The resemblance is uncanny. It even bears the mole by his nose. I purchased it as a gag gift for my mom, and as of today, it is still in the box in her storage room. She didn’t find it nearly as amusing as I did.
Apparently, neither did Walgreens customers in Chicago and Tampa where the Obama "Determined" Chia was deemed racist and pulled from the shelves. Obama depicted as a terra cotta pot with a green fro offended quite a few. Never mind the fact that having Chia fashion a portrait bust in your honor is actually a complement.
Chia pets have been made to celebrate popular American icons including Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Homer Simpson, and even Mr. T (my personal favorite). Mitt Romney Chia wasn’t pulled, and neither was the Newt Gingrich Chia. But Obama supporters claimed that the Chia Obama is racist.
The good news is that although the Chia Obama did not make it back to the shelves, the internet has plenty of them for sale. And I think it makes a great stocking stuffer for a liberal because it’s already been proven to ruffle feathers.
