ironic really since Barack Obama has to hand in his blackberry on January 20th.

The press is saying that Obama is finding giving up his blackberry as hard as giving up his ciggies. Oh the sacrifices a President must make! I suppose DC is thinking it might not be long before he has to give up his mobile and fags too?!

The New Republic reports just where this art movement is going:

Bow down to the Obama franchise marketing machine, baby.

Seriously, I think quite of few of those would sell in the US and the UK among lefty students with nothing better to spend their money on.

Oh, Christ.

The world has had politicians for thousands of years, and yet the general public still doesn't seem to have figured them out. They're like a bunch of abused women: "Oh no, this one's different."

He's not different or special, he's a politican. He'll steal your money, piss it up the wall on stuff you don't want, then order you about. Excuse me if I don't get all excited and tatoo his name on my arse.

He's given them hope. They see him as a mentor to their young people. So why not?

Thank God nobody came up with a Bush-O-Phone!

It wouldn't have been able to communicate with anyone...

Dizzy, I think sending the message to your average person in Africa "yes we can" is a fantastic idea.

Further more mobile phones are the real mover for change the the third world, I kid you not.

See this for example:

Perhaps the BBC will commission a new children's TV programme: Barack The Builder.
