Duane Reade's Progressively More Scary Obama Birthday Cards

Duane Reade—a subsidiary of Walgreens!—carries fine American mass-market cards for every occasion, from "I'm sorry I don't love you enough" to "You should probably get checked out at the clinic" to "happy graduation, foster son of my lesbian partner."

They also carry a diverse line of Barack Obama birthday cards, which range from adulatory to scare-mongering. Here's pics of the front of the card and their inside panel.

We did not nab the name of the manufacturer but it's nice to see that American enterprise isn't taking sides on the "Obama is awesome"/"Obama is the devil" debate.

I thought George W. Bush was the Devil?

@GailPink Not sure where you've spent those eight years, but the rest of the world pretty much unanimously labeled GWB – The Dummy (an attribute almost never associated with The Prince of Darkness). I don't know that anyone has called Obama a dummy, but "scary" sticks to Barack Husein Obama much better (and I will not insult your intelligence by spelling out why).

"see there are things scarier than turning older"

- like how much of a god damn ancient GOPer you must already be to find a black guy in the white house scary.

Thomas, you poor ignorant, uninformed, socialist koolaid drinker. It's not the black guy…it's his socialist policies. And the ironic thing about it is he's spending all your money right now. When you grow up (if you ever do) and get some skin in the game, you'll realize when you're paying $15 for a loaf of bread that maybe that idiot in the white house spending us into oblivion wasn't the messiah you thought he was. But you'll probably be living at home with your folks when you're 45 anyway.

I saw these cards over the weekend in Cincinnati. I almost bought one because they were so ridiculous. Here's the retailer:
