Anybody For Some Obama Campaign Merchandise?

A friend tagged me on Facebook this week with some interesting observations about the merchandise President Obama is offering these days on his website, and...while my friend has asked to remain anonymous, his observations were too good not to share. 

On the President's Web site on Friday, you were able to save 10% on merchandise by using this code: 10%TurkeyDay. Call me nit-picky, but the sale--while it was a "Turkey Day" sale--was posted on Friday, missing Thanksgiving by a day. (perhaps it couldn't be called a "Black Friday" sale because the country is in the red so deep) Just sayin'. 

If you take a look at the front page on the merchandise site, you'll notice that 2012 sticker in the header photo is attached to a Ford Focus. Funny, wasn't Ford the only company that didn't take bailout money?

Rhodium ball and glass ornaments are offered, but Christmas ornaments are never mentioned on the, however, he tweeted an advertisement for Christmas ornaments.  (I'm sure, to the disappointment of many constituents) 

A cutting board is offered, but he seems incapable of cutting the least bit of spending. 

Birth certificate mugs that say "Made in the U.S.A." are my friend put it, it's just a tad ostentatious, don't you think?

He has done you a favor and offered one product that showcases the American flag, so if you'd like to own your very own tee with the President against a flag backdrop, see this link

And, if all of these items don't quite suit your fancy, you may follow this link, donate and enter a drawing to have dinner with the President. Watch the video, I think you'll find it quite...interesting.

In the news...

I've had the opportunity to chat with a few reporters the last couple of weeks and wanted to share the articles with you. It seems the media is fascinated by the continued interest those of us who are Sarah Palin supporters still have in politics! (who knew??)

Check out Frieda Klotz's Forbes Woman piece on "How Sarah Palin's followers are rebranding for the future, " and Paul Blumenthal's Huffington Post piece "Sarah Palin's rarely gave to other candidates prior to her Presidential decision".

Occupy Denver Protesters Get A Little Taste Of Their Own Medicine

In Denver on Friday, Occupy Denver protesters got more than they bargained for when they decided to crash the Freedomworks Blogcon event being held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

I was there for the event and caught some of it on video:
