Obama Tattoos (beautiful, functional, and temporary, of course...)

While my SO and I were waiting to leave the armed madhouse that Denver had become in anticipation of the Democratic National Convention, we were sitting in the lobby of our hotel and struck up a conversation with a lovely couple sitting alongside us.

In the course of our conversation, (which included a delightful digression into the phenomenal qualities of *my* favorite politician - none other than Dennis Kucinich!) we discovered that they were not delegates, but entrepreneurs attempting to place themselves at the right place at the right time in order to give their fledgling business a lift.

We could not help but to admire their thinking and their determination - we also could not help but to admire their wares!! Temporary tattoos... a whole series of them... beautiful artwork designed to help spread the message of presidential candidate Barack Obama. Impressed as I was, I promised to help spread the word here at Jefferson Weeps.

So... to honor my commitment, I hereby beseech our readership to take a moment and head over to Here is your chance to show your support for the candidate as well as an opportunity to support one of the small businesses that embody the "American Dream." I think that you will be very pleased with what you find there!
