If you’re having second thoughts about that bold Sarah-Cuda hunting bow purchase following Palin’s mediocrity in last night’s veep debate, you may consider trying the Obama Belt on for size.

The belt is made by unionized laborers, and fashioned from recycled “pot metal”—my personal favorite. It’s yours for just $100, 100% of which goes toward “swing state initiatives” in support of Barack Obama. For the über-Obama supporter, or as New York designer Elise Mogensen says, “For all those Jay-Zs out there who want theirs to be extra-special,” belts in sterling silver ($800), 14k gold ($9,800), 18k ($14,500) or platinum (market price) are available upon request.

Ridiculous? Maybe. But with the economy in the tank and gold gaining favor, it might actually be a good investment, not to mention the “vintage” value it will have accrued 50 years down the road.
