Is that Obama in my bank?

We have a new commercial running in Turkey. "President Obama" steps up to a podium, flanked by American flags and a White House logo and begins detailing one bank's plan to turn the economic crisis around.

"I wish I could announce such an economic package," he says, "but there is a bank in Turkey that did it. It is Garanti. I wish we had Garanti in America."

This nation not exactly known for its pro-American sentiment, but Barack Hussein (they ALWAYS include his Mslm middle name!) Obama is quite the popular figure of hope around here. He is making his first visit to our country this week, and Garanti (my bank - woo hoo!) has capitalized on his popularity by running an ad campaign using an Obama lookalike. His face is all over television and plastered on bus stops across the country, proclaiming the wisdom of Garanti Bankasi. Gotta love it.
