Nancy Grace And The Importance Of Battlestar Galactica Figures

Before I headed back to Gotham I thought I would spend a portion of my Labor day going to an Obama rally here in Detroit.

My cousin and her daughter got me up early and we headed out to Hart’s Plaza. The speech wasn’t scheduled to start till 11am so our 8am arrival seemed early enough.

We stood in the slow moving line for a spot in the park for 4 hours but still ended up having to watch his speech on the Jumbotron set up for those like us who arrived too late get in.

But this post isn’t about that.

While in line we talked to people of practically every race, age and gender. All happy. All feeling hopeful. All excited and feeling like they are witnessing something important and wanting to somehow be involved.

But this post isn’t about that.

When Obama spoke, he didn’t disappoint. He took a speech about labor (it was Labor Day) and turned it into a call to remember the Gulf Coast storm victims while also remembering the victims of the ‘quiet storms’ many Americans around the country are facing economically.

But this post isn’t about that either.

This post is about the fact that I have not see so many people profit off the back of a black man since O.J. Simpson.

While Nancy Grace, Star Jones, Mark Fuhrman and others can trace there fame back to that infamous trial of the century. There’s a huge underground of small business owners and entrepreneurs who will look back longingly at Obama’s rise in politics and the profits it’s bought them.

I have never seen so many different Obama t-shirts. In the tens of thousands of people I saw at least 1/3rd was wearing some unofficial but cool as hell t-shirt with Obama’s face on it.

And if you didn’t have one there was always someone less than 100ft away willing to sell you one.

Don’t think Obama shirts are popular?

Walk into an Urban Outfitters. McCain just doesn’t get the same love.  But if that’s too corporate for you check out Etsy. Or take a look at Ebay.

The business of Obama is definitely the people’s business.

At the event I went to today there were stands with almost nothing but books about Obama. Not his books. Everyone already has those, but picture books and books for kids all talking about this man who isn’t even (and may not ever be) president. It is truly a site to behold.

But even if you don’t have something with Obama’s picture on it there is still profits to be made.

While standing for hours unlicensed vendors were walking through the crowd with ice chests selling water for $3 a 8 ounce bottle.

When the guy in front of me complained about the price the seller told him that it was “Obama’s sweat chilled and bottled to keep the crowd cool.”

“You should’ve said that!” the guy in front of me said with a smile. “I’ll take two.”

    I saw a funny picture of Nancy disGrace with the following comment placed into the picture. It reads “Every time a child is murdered, Nancy Grace has an orgasm.” Just hilarious, yet probably so accurate. She thrives on victimizing real victims of crimes. Since Nancy was never a victim of any crime in her lifetime, she remains clue-less to the damage she does to real actual victims of crimes.

  6. michellefrommadison Says:

    It is clear to those that have really scrutinized Nancy Grace’s misconduct that Nancy clearly suffers from a psychological disorder. Might be one of the many reasons CNN puts her into therapy so often. Not for her alcoholism or drug usage she says she does, but for her mental instability.

    Stop victimizing victims Nancy Grace, and stop helping to lose the life of non-convicted victims again. You belong in prison for the crimes you have done, and get those twin kids away from your drunkenness and your pill-popping. Maybe you should tell the viewers on every show that you are under state and federal lawsuits again for your role in assisting to end the life of a mother of a missing child, and while you’re at it, mention that those twins do not have the same father and neither twin is biologically related to your husband. Try being truthful for a change.

    Nancy is a hero to other child-batterers like herself. No wonder Nancy cannot be alone with either of those twin-tots. Perhaps Nancy should explain to viewers why she cannot be alone with them and why her husband is not the father of either one of those twin-tots.
