Rolling Stone's Tim Dickinson notes that Obama is now selling gear with his name in Hebrew. One small mistake: That '08 should really be a '69, since the election occurs in year 5769 in the Jewish calendar.

Update: I misread the Obama website; it doesn't call the pin the "NY for Obama button." But speaking of New Yorkers, you can get Hebraicized Hillary tote bags and t-shirts from Jews for Hillary.
