Obama's Presidential Coin

Will the narcissism never end? Grim links to Dad29, who links to Hot Air, who links to the Birmingham (UK) Post article:

The coins already sold to the Democrats will be presented to the senators, congressmen, governors and other politicians they are being given to within the next two weeks.

There will also be a television advertising campaign launched in the US.
...
When they got in touch with the Democrats the party jumped at the chance. And the coins have proved such a hit that locally produced versions have already been launched to compete with the UK originals.

The coins show Senator Obama’s face, along with a picture of the White House and the legend “President of the United States of America”.

Never mind we are still more than 6 weeks from Election Day, and even further from Inauguration Day...

"Will the narcissism never end?"

Because seeing as this coin is created by a company that has nothing to do with the DNC... and your use of the word narcissism (you can check the meaning) implies that Obama/DNC had a hand in creating this, which is not the truth.. What exactly does your comment reference to.....?

No, the DBC didn't commission the coins, but they certainly are purchasing them. And passing them out to Obama supporters. Before the election. This, after Obama's "presidential seal" and those ridiculous Greek columns reminiscent of the exterior of the West Wing of the White House at his convention speech.
