Obama v McCain YouTube Smackdown

Palin t-shirt round-up

October 19, 2008

After McCain was complaining at the last debate that people were wearing offensive t-shirts at Obama’s rallies, we thought we’d do a t-shirt round-up. Turns out, the McCain t-shirts are boring: he’s old, he looks like a sleeze when he smiles, blah blah blah.  But Palin, on the other hand, was a whole other story. Oh, and our round-up has a margin of error of +-12% and a non-response rate of 65%. 

The ebay listing of “Bang yes/Vote no” reads:
“Express your sexist, biased opinion on the GOP’s VP candidate with this one of a kind, custom made shirt.”
Oh, and 10% of all proceeds go to the Red Cross. What nice guys.


Love her, hate her, everyone wants to fuck her. 


I’m so glad that Republicans have found a way to integrate the feminist message with their party line.
I think it goes something like, “If she’s a woman, and you agree with her, you must be a feminist!”

 Phew, got we got that out in the open.
Palin’s vagina was becoming the elephant in the room, if you know what I mean.
Props to you, Republicans, ten thousand giant steps backward.

Got a case of the Mondays? Drown it with some hardcore right-wing softball action. Mooseburgers after the game and a Cosmo to whoever laughs off the most pitbull-in-heat pickup lines at the bar.

What the fuck?  Seriously, who is wearing this?  It says “Vote McCain-Palin,” but nothing about this shirt makes me want to vote or support the GOP.  Is this shirt for those mythical beasts the Undecideds?  This shirt might work if the dog were sitting on Obama.


 First, is that a sawed-off shotgun!?  Second, I love this word: Saracuda.  If that was the name on the ballot, I might pull the lever.

There’s nothing more nationalist than a superhero. And what is it about those glasses?

  This is just disrespectful to the evil empire.  And who is wearing this, computer-nerd Dick Cheney supporters?

If you can’t read this shirt, it says “Bitter American for McCain/Palin.”  I don’t understand the bitterness here.  Isn’t the mall open on election day?

Obama t-shirt round-up

October 19, 2008

Quick, only three more weeks to participate in the juggernaut that is the black market Obama-merchandise economy.  I would really love to see the figures of how many people are making bank on Barack puns and Shepard Fairy knock-offs.  Below are our top ten favorite Obama shirts that are making people rich on Ebay.  Still waiting on a shirt featuring Tupac and Biggie in the sky, embracing, and giving a thumbs-up to Obama below.  It’s a classic in the waiting.  

 Oh hell yeah. I heard that on election night, Obama’s gonna ride in on a floating skateboard and then everyone’s going to look under their couches and we’ll all have floating skateboards, courtesy of Oprah. And the future. 

Ok. 1) The software that came with your digital camera is supposed to create photo borders that say things like “Hey Grandma,” or “Beach Vacation 08!!!”  2) It’s funny now, but when that bloody-faced kid with his white-entitlement anger graduates from home school, watch out, America.

Really?  So, what, your racist ass can enjoy Obama’s policies in a nation led by white people? Or is it because Obama’s health plan isn’t universal enough?


This is adorable. I don’t even have anything funny to say about it. Did his grandma make this?  And peep that, no restrictions!  That’s right.

So obvious, but sooo good.  Seriously, when did the GOP start recruiting clever, graphic design college students?

OMG! I really hope this isn’t photoshopped! (but I’m sure it is.)  Either way, we can only hope in thirty years kids will be rockin’ Obama’s face on shirts from Hot Topic.

This one’s got me all conflicted.  At first I’m all like, in your face McCain.  But then I remember this is based on some seriously homophobic Nike ads.


So, there is an amazing quantity of airbrushed Obama shirts on Ebay.  And this, my friends, is the best one.

S-O-C-K I-T 2 ME. Lots of hope shirt designs, this one wins for its brevity: you got hope, terrorist fist jabs, and youth vote appeal all in one shirt. BAM!

I’m so glad we finally have a presidential candidate who’s name is conducive to puns. And unlike “Barack to the Future,” this one has the added benefit of having nothing at all to do with the Obama campaign’s message or branding. It exists for the simple joy of the pun. I could do without the creepy floating head, though. Maybe they are confused about the meaning of “visual pun”?
