US Foreign Policy Gift Shop

With just 108 shopping days left on the Bush Countdown clock, shoppers everywhere are scurrying about to find that perfect memento to help remember what aspiring Vice President Sarah Palin apparently knows nothing about: the Bush Doctrine.

Photographer Phillip Toledano has done his part with his online installation, America The Gift Shop, where he suggests a few souvenirs to recall the last eight years.

The selection varies wildly, from the moulded resin and plexiglass Abu Ghraib Coffee Table* pictured here, to neon signs, T-shirts, chocolate bars and an Inflatable Guantanamo Bay Bouncy Prison Cell. Really, you must take a look.

Toledano’s other recent work includes a portrait book of phone sex operators (wouldn’t that look sweet on that Abu Ghraib coffee table?). Much more on his website.
