Vulgarians Running Obama Store

If there is one group of people your Wonkette cannot tolerate, it is vulgarians, with their toilet humor and Satanic acronyms about fucking. These are the only people employed at Organizing for America, a.k.a. “” Look at Joe Biden’s “big fucking deal” right there, on the tee shirt, in the Obama Font. Filthy. If only David Brooks or another polite young man were running this place. [Organizing for America]

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

    If any Repubs other than the Fox News PR dept. were capable of snark, they’d be having fun with this one. I’m probably to the left of Bernie Sanders politically, but this is just fucking stupid. I don’t know if that’s relevant actually. I am trying so hard not to work, Wonkette, please suspend my commenting privileges.

  2. bureaucrap

    Normally, I’d say it was an April Fool’s joke, but I suspect we’ll be seeing them on the streets of DC by the weekend. It would have been even better if they had almost spelled it out (e.g., “Big F–in’ Deal”).

  3. JMP

    I’d like to get that, but twenty-five dollars for a T-Shirt is not a big fucking deal; it is in fact far too expensive.

  4. Ruhe

    [re=546634]Clancy_Pants[/re]: Wow! I was just thinking that as much as I’d love to have one of those shirts I’d have trouble explaining to my kids what BFD means. Now I have a plausible answer. “Well kids, health care reform is a great thing, just like the Baltimore Fire Department, which is a really awesome Fire Department.” Thanks man.

  5. WadISay

    I hope they offer one that says, “BFD, but NPO” (no public option). I would still like to ram it down John Boehner’s throat.

  6. joezoo

    It’s a good thing Messrs. Hoefler and Frere-Jones aren’t alive to see this shameful day.

  7. mumblyjoe

    [re=546640]Oblios Cap[/re]: If we take Snowbilly’s word for it, health care reform is a Bid for Death, exactly.

  8. SayItWithWookies

    I’m just glad we have a VP who makes “fuck” into a celebratory word instead of an asswipe word. It speaks volumes about the difference between the administrations, fuck yeah it does.

  9. An Outhouse

    BFD. Those are my initials. And , yes, I’ve been yelled at for being a smart ass when initialing documents at work.

  10. JMP

    [re=546640]Oblios Cap[/re]: Batter fried doughnuts; a reason XXXXXL Americans really need health reform.

  11. Mista Eko

    Note to DNC: Will pay top dollar for a shirt with Joe Biden wielding the BFG 9000 from DOOM.

  12. TGY

    They meant ‘BVD’, obvs, which is either a brand of men’s underwear or Bovine Virus Diarrhea.

  13. Extemporanus

    [re=546657]nappyduggs[/re]: The “Obama Font” is actually called BIG FUCKING SANS.

  14. Berkeley Bear

    [re=546651]Ruhe[/re]: Berkeley Fire Department, too. You could always spot a true pot head by how much they giggled as the BFD trucks rolled by.

  15. jus_wonderin

    I wonder. Due to my recent unemployment, loss of health insurance and the subsequent removal of my ailing and defect torso I would only need the neck ring and sleeves. Do you have one in my size? And, how much is rush shipping?
