Madame's Free Market Stimulus Plan

I don't know if Madame intended to help provide a jolt to various sectors of the economy by writing a book, but it appears that she just might do that. I wrote about Madame's book a few times last week, and her book still maintains the top spots on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, even though it isn't being released until November 17th. 1.5 million books will be printed for the first edition. That is a heck of a lot of paper, ink, and other necessary book-binding materials! I suspect that this will provide a needed stimulus to those industries, not to mention the both the brick and mortar and online book industries!

There is another industry that has seen its stocks rise in recent months, likely due to Madame's Facebook postings and the fits that she is giving to the Great Opologizer. Sadly, as an inanimate object, I cannot own stock. If I could though, I would buy stock in Kimberly-Clark, the makers of Depends. In the past six months, the returns for this stock have increased by more than 20%. This makes sense, as Madame has a tendency to make the President get all "wee-weed up" and make him so scared that he "you know whats" his pants.

Don't tell Madame, but I'm going rogue myself. I'm planning on preemptively starting on online business as part of my own stimulus plan. I'm going to sell 2012 presidential campaign memorabilia and 2013 inauguration keepsakes. My first item will be a "I went rogue, and all I got was this move to the White House" mouse pad. What do you think?

(H/T to the Sarcasm Sisters at C4P for the Depends humor)

LOTUS,
Great post! Yes, Depends stock is way up! I wonder if the makers of Depends are going to start marketing a commemorative "Hope and Change" line of Depends! The Obama campaign logo or The One's face plastered on the front. It would be a huge seller on the East Coast and university campuses. With a sell out of them on November 17th!
Love LOTUS!:)
