Nothing Says “I Can Relate to the Middle Class” Like Cheesy Overpriced Merchandise by Jet-Setting Designers

The Obama re-election campaign is once again doing what it does best: talk the Ordinary Americans talk while walking the Rich and Famous walk. (Hat tip: Matt Drudge.)

In the Obama spirit of wasting money, supporters of the O-Team can go to the President’s re-election campaign web site and lay down $45 to $95 for an item from “Runway to Win,” described as “a project by fashion designers in support of Obama 2012.” And what a project it is. (Sorry, no link here. You’ll have to look it up.)

There are few things Americans love more than t-shirts, so you can get any number of fabulous designer t-shirts starting at $45, like this one that says a bunch of stuff too small for someone to actually read without violating the wearer’s personal space. Decapitated body not included.

If clothing that looks like your toddler drew on it isn’t your bag, you can buy an actual bag instead. Maybe one of these nylon totes, suitable for sustainable grocery shopping or taxpayer-funded international luxury jaunts with the First Lady, for a mere $85.

But practicality can be such a drag. If you’re hip enough, check out this fine art pin, made from some metal apparently not worth identifying, for the low low price of just $50. What makes it either fine or art? If you have to ask, you won’t understand the answer.

Or how about this 2×2′ silk scarf in a distinctive paisley cotton boll motif, for just $95? Can we look at it for more than 10 seconds without doing permanent retinal damage? Yes We Can, if we wear protective eyewear!

On the other hand, if you’re going to throw away, er, spend $95, you might want something that boldly declares, as the president so often does, “LET ME BE CLEAR.” Like this zip-up sweatshirt. Oy.

This is all highly valuable stuff, and we know that because not only is it from Fashion Designers, but it’s all designed to Support Obama 2012. You won’t find anything nearly so cool on the Mitt Romney campaign site, because Romney isn’t nearly as cool as the Big O.
