Obama hits the sealing

Well, that was quick. AFP and other services are reporting that the Obama campaign has dropped its strange quasi-presidential seal, used for the first time only three days ago.

I'd like to say this decision is evidence of The Interpreter's reach and has been taken in response to my post yesterday. But in fact the blogosphere has been alive with commentary on the seal, most of it negative. Some have gone so far (too far, surely) as to suggest that the Obama seal may have violated federal law by being too close a likeness of the presidential seal.

(Ed. note: the groan-inducing pun in the header is mine, not Michael's.)
