If you didn't think the US was screwed up enough...

You can now buy a Chia Obama...

And worse, it's not even a joke:

I mean, I think I had one when I was eight years old (well, no, it wasn't the Obama Chia) and I thought it was incredibly sucky then.

So the fact that enough Americans will buy them to justify network TV commercials just... well... kinda makes me wanna puke.

I suppose I should be more tolerant.

But I'm not.
