    A recent [joke] comment by Drifter reminded me of something, but it took me a little while to recall exactly what - I just did.

    "A pocket sized book of Barack Obama quotations currently for sale on Amazon.com is causing a stir with customers who have slated the product, comparing it to Communist dictator Mao Tse-Tung’s 'little red book'”

    “Pocket Obama” Compared To Mao’s Little Red Book By Irate Amazon Customers

    On a loosely related theme, from another article on the same site

    "China’s premier, Wen Jiabao, expressed on Friday, March 13, his fears that the US Treasury’s credit is not good and that his country’s $1 trillion investment in American debt is endangered. Premier Wen said, “We have lent a huge amount of money to the U.S. Of course we are concerned about the safety of our assets. To be honest, I am definitely a little worried.”

    Somehow this video seems extremely appropriate for this thread.
