Fuel For the Fire

Oh great, this is JUST what the wingnuts need:

BEIJING – The Chinese have learned English from his speeches and celebrated the way he rolls up his sleeves. Now President Barack Obama is finally coming, and he's being greeted with "Oba Mao" T-shirts and a statue of him that bursts into flames.

Sunday's arrival of a U.S. president admired for his charisma is already a source of profit and brief fame for some Chinese.

Strangest is the burning Obama, tucked away in a Beijing warehouse. Artist Liu Bolin hopes Obama can take time from his visit to drop by.

"He's so hot right now, so I wanted to translate that through my work," said Liu, who was inspired by the idea of the first black U.S. president.
Look, the Chinese are really fond of Nixon too. Back off, Hannity.

China celebrates another communist hero. A fitting tribute.

Come on, that's all you got? Pretty weak sauce.

What else do I need? They know a kindred spirit when they see one.
