Star-Naming, Lunar Real Estate & the Best Novelty Holiday Gift of All

Sure, these certificates might be impressive framed on your office wall, but nothing compares to an official presidential ballot, which can be personalized for the history books for a mere $1,000.

Looking for that Christmas or Chanukah gift for that special someone who seemingly has everything?

Next time consider an official spot on the New Hampshire Presidential Primary ballot!

Oh, you won’t find it in the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog.

The filing deadline is over, but let’s see how the cost of a vanity presidential ballot — unframed — fares up against some other popular gag gifts worth showing off:

Check out below for the Best Advertising Deal of the Century:

Who says that President Barack Obama is running unopposed in the NH Primary? (click pic for larger image)

AGAIN, THE NH FILING DEADLINE FOR 2012 HAS CLOSED but why not put a 2016 ballot on layaway?

Also, check out Ballot Access News for filing deadlines/costs for other state ballots. Certainly, a Colorado or Louisiana ballot would look just as handsome above your bar!

Wonder Woman for President

Overdue for a CNN fashion shoot, the wardrobe of political rabblerouser Vermin Supreme is best described as "Occupy Wall Street" meets "Project Runway."

Only one presidential candidate out of the 44 on the New Hampshire Primary ballot wears a Wonder Woman cape on the campaign trail.

Democrat Vermin Supreme, who’s run for the Oval Office since 1992, brushed off the cultural significance of this, telling me: “We have no idea what’s really inside Rick Perry’s closet, do we?”

You can read all about the Wonder Woman cape (and some rather important ballot access stuff) in my latest story for The Hill.

Oh, and in case you weren’t aware of the original Amazonian Princess taking a shot at the White House, she was endorsed by Gloria Steinem and Ms. Magazine back in 1972.

What would a Wonder Woman vs. Richard Nixon debate have looked like? For that matter, what was Nixon's position on the "Last Frontier" of Body Hair?

No word yet on Mr. Supreme’s position on the complete rebranding of Wonder Woman, which includes getting rid of her classic costume for a horrendous spandex outfit.

“She’s been locked into pretty much the exact same outfit since her debut in 1941,” comic book writer Michael Straczynski recently told The New York Times. “If you’re going to make a statement about bringing Wonder Woman into the 21st century, you need to be bold and you need to make it visual. I wanted to toughen her up, and give her a modern sensibility.”

As bold and as tough as Vermin Supreme?
