Nobama Stuff Now Hot Seller


Get your Nobama t-shirts now! This guy bought two!
Never mind about his scratching. All guys scratch.

Story here.

Yup. It's Obama's turn. Nobush stuff sold really well; time now for Nobama stuff.

Anti-Obama memorabilia -- from T-shirts to bumper stickers to buttons -- is increasingly emerging in the marketplace as the president's economic and health care policies polarize supporters and detractors.

While "Mama for Obama" was a popular slogan during the 2008 election cycle, that design has been retooled with angry and fickle disenchantment: "To the Mama for Obama -- thanks for the tax hike." The "Audacity of Hope," the title of Mr. Obama's popular book, has been replaced by the "Audacity of Hype."

"It really started peaking about a month ago," said Amy Maniatis, vice president of marketing at the online seller Cafepress.com.

"You see it as a direct response to some of the promising messages that happened a year ago. Whereas we had the campaign of Obama centered around hope, and it was a very optimistic message, now they're asking: 'How's that hopey-changey thing going?' "

Well, broken promises... even totally vague ones... piss people off, don't they, especially when made by assholes who take their money away?
