Now that S-CHIP has passed, smokers will need to do their patriotic duty and fork over those hiked-up tobacco taxes to help ensure that more and more families drop their private coverage and ride the universal health care Trojan Horse.

How about lighting up with these? Et tu, President Obama?

While U.S. President Barack Obama tries to kick an old smoking habit, a Nicaraguan company has produced the latest in a flood of merchandise trying to cash in on his popularity — “Obama” cigars. Granada Cigars, a small outfit based in Nicaragua’s tobacco-growing north, is using local and Cuban leaves to hand-roll cigars wrapped with a band that says “Obama 44,” to commemorate the 44th U.S. President.
