Obama's New Presidential Seal

Trying it on for size?


Don't count the McCain folks as people who are getting a kick out of this. According to the Jed Report, the McCain camp is suggesting jail time for Obama citing 18 USC 713 (b), which states:

Whoever, except as authorized under regulations promulgated

by the President and published in the Federal Register, knowingly

manufactures, reproduces, sells, or purchases for resale, either

separately or appended to any article manufactured or sold, any

likeness of the seals of the President or Vice President, or any

substantial part thereof, except for manufacture or sale of the

article for the official use of the Government of the United

States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than

six months, or both.
I think there's an argument to be made here that as a member of the United States Senate Obama could certainly argue that it was for the official use of the Government of the United States. Or the McCain folks could lighten up and take it for what it is: a bad idea and a lame attempt at humor.
