Not unlike Julius Caesar, The Chosen One (as in chosen by the media) has allowed his sainted image to be struck upon gold coin:
Windsor, Elizabeth & Windsor has already sold more than 300 limited edition commemorative silver coins to the Democratic Party to hand out to key members of the campaign to elect Obama.
The contract is worth about £100,000 to the company, based on Warstone Lane, Hockley.
And a spokesman for WEW said they expected thousands more coins to be bought if Obama becomes president, which could bring millions into the small firm.
WEW is producing limited edition runs of gold, silver and platinum Obama coins, and plans to produce new ones in other finishes for public consumption if the demand emerges.
The coins show Senator Obama’s face, along with a picture of the White House and the legend “President of the United States of America”.
It's a foreign company, of course. What's the matter, O - couldn't find an American firm willing to pay homage to your visage? Or are you just another greedy American capitalist shipping work overseas so that you can save a few pennies?
"Change", indeed - with our new master's face all over it...
