A political satire campaign has launched called “Plates for Obama” that presents the ‘accomplishments’ of the Republican Party on a dinner plate.

The dinner plate features color illustrations that depict events of the past eight years, like higher gas prices, Hurricane Katrina, a failing stock market, and home foreclosures.

Website visitors and are playfully urged to “Commemorate our outgoing president… And help elect his Democratic successor!” Plates can be purchased for $19.99 at Plates4Obama.com, and 100% of the proceeds are donated to the Obama campaign.

“Plates for Obama” is a voluntary political campaign created by cutting-edge Chicago advertising agency The Escape Pod, after they were randomly assigned a candidate for an upcoming Chicago Sun-Times political ad competition. The agency decided to bring the political satire initiative to life as the election nears and are now shipping these dinner plates nationwide.
