You have to laugh at the irony of this story from the Consumerist. Turns out that the Obama collector coins sold on TV by Montel WIlliams are a huge ripoff. All the consumer gets is money with Obama stickers applied on the face.
Isn't this the perfect metaphor for the Obama Presidency. Obama was sold to us by celebrities. When you finally get it you immediately realize that it's not what you expected; you were deceived into buying a cheap fake.
Add your own metaphors here.
