'Chia Obama' booted from
local stores


Updated: Friday, 03 Apr 2009, 5:30 PM EDT
Published : Friday, 03 Apr 2009, 5:30 PM EDTTAMPA - Some local Walgreen's stores are pulling a supposed likeness of President Barack Obama off their shelves. The 'Chia Obama' will no longer be sold there.
Walgreen's spokesman Michael Polzin explained to FOX 13 that local store managers have the ability to purchase and market products -- like the Chia Obama -- on their own.
But now, the corporate office has asked stores to pull the product from their stores because, he said, it is not appropriate for the company's corporate image.
The Chia Obama is a version of the Chia Pet line, which features a ceramic figure upon which fresh greens are planted and allowed to grow, filling out the likeness of the subject.

What's worst are the coins they made to "celebrate" 9/11. Disgusting.

What's inappropriate about it?

Unlike his economic plan, this should support some kind of growth.
