(Newser) – A master German dollmaker and Barack Obama fan has paid tribute to the candidate with a doll, Der Spiegel reports. The craftsman admits that the creation—his first attempt at making a black doll—is far from an exact Barack-plica, but says it works on a more symbolic level. The 14-inch doll sports the oft-debated Stars-and-Stripes lapel pin and the kind of blue tie Obama favors.
