Hasta la Vista, Bobblehead

According to the Smoking Gun, Arnold Schwarzenegger is threatening to sue an Ohio company that is selling a bobblehead doll featuring the name and likeness of the California Governator. The bobblehead company argues that because Arnie is an elected official, his image is public domain. Brian Flemming has an open letter to Arnold's lawyer, Martin Singer.

Arnold already looks like a bobblehead, so the company really didn't have to stretch too far.

So now tens of thousands of people have seen the doll, who never would have known that it existed.

Check out the second trackback, Miriam. It basically proves your point. Something like 24 people have blogged the bobblehead already. Viral marketing at its finest!

I overstated that a little bit, but Daily Kos and Wonkette picked up the story, and they are very widely read (so it's kind of like 24 bloggers have picked up the story).
