When people start making their own campaign shirts, things get plain scary.
First, I'd like to say that I don't really know what political t-shirts do, except allow people to feel superior for their choice. I doubt they do much to change people's decisions. I know these aren't made or even endorsed by the candidates...but geez. They certainly don't bode well for the perceived mentality of the GOP.
As a graphic designer, I get a thrill looking at these horendously conceived and designed shirts for candidates (just search Sarah Palin at Café Press if you want to see more). I'm guessing most of you saw much of the Hillary stuff. In addition to all the 'go girl' type shirts, there were plenty of cheap shot designs like these:
Now it's Palin's turn. And while the message is different, it's still pretty dang offensive. And as you'll see all of the ones I show below are actually IN SUPPORT of her as a candidate!
1. Isn't it great when your candidate isn't 2. Get it? Get it? Democrats are ugly! Oh, and they don't even granted a name, designation of hotness? don't even shave their legs!
3. Stop the insanity! 4. McMilf? More like McBarf. (Thanks! I'll be here all week.)
5. I'm so glad they're fighting that double standard! 6. Stay klassy, t-shirt designers! Also, that pink script really makes me identify as a Vagina-American.
6. Fun with misappropriating feminist terminology! 8. Wait, Chick is one of her kids' names, right?
