Shirt: Retro Obama 08 – can be purchased through CafePress.

1. Work day –
so…how about the hockey mom’s $150,000 wardrobe. Really, this wouldn’t be a story or upset me if she weren’t trying to sell herself as the advocate for every average joe. I don’t understand why people buy into that. She’s not average…McCain’s not average…they are not looking out for people like me. On the other hand, check out this video where the Obamas talk about how they do most of their shopping at the Gap. There are a lot of arguments from the right that make me upset, but I think the “elitist” propaganda is near the top. I don’t equate intelligence with being elitist. I do, however, think having 8 or 10 or 11 houses (however many) might make you an elitist. I think being an heir to the fortune your family made in the beer industry might make you an elitist. I think a $17,000 a day wardrobe allowance might make you an elitist. I think being a really smart, well educated community organizer turned politician, who really did start out “just like me” makes you brilliant, driven, and admirable.

Obama for America has a new offer for a free bumper sticker if you don’t have one yet.
