Campaigning with Style
I never thought I'd tip my hat to the far-right - but with the cute fashiony items at The George W. Bush Online Store, I just might have to. Yes....the Dubya Store. Oh, excuse me, "Team W".
It's kinda sleek in some ways. It's kinda Old West meets American Eagle Outfitters meets Talbots (without ultra-creepy, rich white ladies) meets Abercrombie (without the hot, naked jocks). The whole "W" line is so fucking brilliant - in so many ways. From a marketing standpoint, one could claim the president has reclaimed his middle initial from the pundits that have derided him by calling him Dubya. Thanks Molly Ivins - now you've made his initial (and him, by association) stylish and cool.
As for John Kerry -- only one cute shirt is to be found.
