The GOP merchandising machine is kicking into gear following VP nominee Sarah Palin’s Wasilla-to-Washington pep rally on Wednesday night, angling to compete with those ubiquitous Shepard Fairey Obama T-shirts and such by offering “Sarah Is My Homegirl” cotton separates and, yes, “Wonder Palin” thong underwear.
Anchorage Daily News:
One Anchorage entrepreneur, Jim Dooley, printed about 700 John McCain/Palin shirts this weekend, delivering the first batch to the Alaska State Fair by 4 p.m. Friday.
They sold out every day.
Dooley declined to say how much money he made on the pro-Palin shirts during Alaska’s biggest summer bash.
But it was enough to “pay for my turkey legs and pork-chop on a stick,” he said.
Alaska Serigraphics, an Anchorage company, said it will produce pro-Palin T-shirts that will be offered for sale at downtown gift shops, possibly as soon as Friday.
“Our mama beats your Obama,” reads one of the company’s T-shirt designs.
