Riding an awfully fine line separating taste from vulgarity, Chia has just released Chia Barack Obama and is only asking $19.99 at Amazon! Because, when all else fails, attach Barack Obama's name to it and maybe you can cash in on someone else's wave of popularity one more time. Available with either the pictured "determined" expression or with a "happy" expression, this kit includes the ceramic planter, seed packet for three plantings, convenient plastic drip tray, and instruction sheet. Shipping is free with a $25 purchase.
