    Can you celebrate the Obama presidency at NBC?

    Yes you can.

    If you're a fan of all things Obama, NBC Universal's online store has no fewer than 29 options for your buying pleasure -- from a shirt with the president's picture proclaiming "YES WE DID"...to both of his books...to a special inauguration DVD...to a refrigerator magnet of the first couple.

    And don't forget the Barack Obama Action Figure -- yours for $15, plus tax.

    You can buy them online -- or at NBC Universal's retail store in New York.

    Some analysts say it's good business, that NBC is simply offering what people want to buy. They point out that the adult version of the “YES WE DID” shirt ($25) was so popular, it sold out on the Web site.

    But others note that there is no merchandise available that shows support for the other side of the political aisle. And they question whether the political bent of the items on sale are healthy for a corporation that operates an impartial news outlet.

    Some of NBC’s item descriptions would seem to support that notion: "Bring reform to your refrigerator. Or at least keep company with the President while you're at work, with the Barack Obama Magnet," one item description reads.

    No question...they are not an impartial news outlet. What does NBC stand for? New Barak Communism?

    Leave it to Fox to report anything pro Obama. Be it you got an email from the WH or some station is selling Obama memorabilia, It is Fox' job to report on it.

    And leave it to LeBuick to continue to make excuses and dismiss anything that is not fawning over "the one".

    It is to conservatives, which of course see a clear bias.

    I guess the question is whether the NBC store sold any commemorative items related to the Bush presidency, correct?

    It's part of the huge "Right Wing Conspiracy" no doubt.

    I was watching O'Reilly Factor & he was mentioning that too.

    What I would like to do is flood the NBC Store with thousands of phone calls requesting Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, or even George W. Bush stuff. I wonder how they would respond to an overwhelming demand.
