Welcome to the cult of Barack Obama. When it comes to Obama’s fans, outrageous embellishment seems to be the rule, not the exception. His charms can be tough to resist, even for some of Hollywood’s biggest names. “He walks into a room and you want to follow him somewhere, anywhere,” George Clooney told talk show host Charlie Rose. “I’ll do whatever he says to do,” actress Halle Berry said to the Philadelphia Daily News. “I’ll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear.”
The true believers can “Obamatize” just about anything. Knitters for Obama crochet for him, Runners for Obama jog for him, and at Hold ‘Em Barack they bet on him. In Chicago, a recent art exhibit showed works depicting the candidate on canvas, paper and even in animated videos. A search on Flickr, the photo-sharing website, turns up pictures of Obama cakes, murals, etch-a-sketch drawings and even tattoos. On a crafts auction website, you can buy Obama jewelry, paintings, and even a homemade Obama Valentine. The valentine card shows a sketch of the candidate with the text, “I want to Barack your world.”
