Will shirt sales vindicate President Bush? It might depend on how well they wash.
CafePress, those lovable shirt makers who can cross the aisle like a McCain in the making, are reporting that George W. Bush is the new Obama. Since the billboard featuring President Bush with the question, “Miss Me Yet?” took to the skies along a Minnesota highway last week, Bush merchandise is back.
Is there room on the chest of America for two popular Presidents? Apparently not. The One, who had initially replaced W in sales, has been struck by the success of the come-back kid. As Bush “Miss Me Yet?” shirts are flying off the e-store, Obama merchandise is filling storage boxes.
The One is no longer the one that fits.
Last week, 10 of the sight’s 100 top-selling designs were Bush, equating to approximately 500 orders a day, according to Jenna Martin, CafePress spokeswoman.
ACORN was not involved in the counting of t-shirt sales.
“There were no Obama-themed designs on the list – Bush has stolen the political spotlight, just like Sarah Palin did the week before when she re-surfaced with crib notes written in her palm,” she said.
What Americans wear and drive-by is increasingly becoming a blast from the Presidential past or a sign, pardon the pun, of growing discontent. A new Anti-Obama billboard has taken to the roadside, asking Cedar Rapids, Iowa drivers, “Hows that ‘Hope and Change’ working out for you?”.
That makes the fourth Anti-Obama message to become life-sized, including the “Impeach Obama” billboard in Wisconsin, the “Marxist” billboard in Missouri, and the “Miss Me Yet?” billboard in Minnesota.
Any one want to predict the next billboard slogan? Any ideas? How about…
We’ll save the country while saving electricity.

His policies are as dead as his oratory skills.

It’s a truth universally known.
Hope -vs- Change: 0 for 1
Don’t let him have a final four.
I voted for change. Can I get a mulligan?
