How Come Nobody Is Buying Gold Lamé Obama Hoodies Anymore?

Merchants selling Obama tees, sweatshirts, and dinner plates — which is apparently a reasonable way to make a living — are reporting sluggish sales of their wares in recent months. Even after the election, and the inauguration, pins and buttons and perhaps even Obama panties were moving swiftly in 2009. Now? Not so much. In Washington D.C.’s Union Station, the souvenir shop Obama Store has closed — just one indicator the president is no good at sustaining jobs. (Haha, that was so mean.) But I’m guessing that if you looked at the sales data for LGBT-themed Obama merch, the revenue chart took a dive south even earlier.

    It disgusts me to even see that rainbow-flag Obama merchandise anymore.

    Obama is not friends with the gay community. Hopefully everyone has realized this by now. At best, the LGBT community is just a constituency that Obama tolerates. He does not support equality, in spite of everyone’s wishes that he did.

    Nobody’s buying these for the same reason nobody listens to Milli Vanilli anymore.

    Plus those things are just tackée!

    I’m just holding my breath for a Maddow / Olbermann ticket. Or Olbermann / Maddow. Or they can flip flop whenever they feel like it.
