"Just think about it," said comedian Lewis Black in a recent installment; "two months before he even takes office, Barack Obama has already earned a permanent place on 'Mount Crapmore.'"

Black took the time in a recent "Back in Black" segment to chronicle the various ways in which merchandisers have invited hot-pocketed revelers to commemorate President-elect Obama's historic ascent. Items available include souvenir coins, collector plates and specially branded prophylactics.

Said Black: "The election of Barack Obama has once again demonstrated America's greatest gift: Our capacity to embrace hope and idealism... and then turn it into worthless, disposable crap!"
