DECLARE VICTORY AND GTFO  11:28 am April 10, 2012

Stunning Victory For Furious Wingnuts: Obama Camp No Longer Cutting $10 Off Sweatshirts With Hoods

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Declare victory where you can we guessDid you hear the news???!? The Obama campaign had cut the price of their hooded Obama sweatshirts from $50 to $40, and this was a race-baiting disgrace! And now the hooded sweatshirts are back up to full price! VICTORY! FREEDOM! NOM NOM NOM BRAINZ!

Here is the Gateway Pundit’s blogpost in its entirety, because why not?

Obama Campaign decides that hawking hoodies during Trayvon controversy is as tawdry as it appears.
The sale is off—Team Obama canceled their shameless hoodie sale this past week.
Yahoo reported:

President Obama recently said that if he had a son, he’d look like murder victim Trayvon Martin. And in what some conservatives see as a direct connection between the national controversy surrounding the teen’s death, the Obama 2012 re-election campaign announced via Twitter on Monday that it was putting its collegiate hooded sweatshirt on sale.

The sweatshirt was temporarily discounted to $40 from its regular $50 listing. However, the tweet announcing the sale has apparently been removed and following the hooded sweatshirt link at Obama’s campaign re-election site store shows the clothing item listed at its regular $50 price.

Obama’s critics on the right had a field day with the questionable Twitter posting, with the conservative blog Gateway Pundit calling it “disgusting,” and the website Twitchy asking if “Team Obama is capitalizing on Treyvon Martin’s death?”

It is a great day to be the world’s stupidest person, the Gateway Pundit! It is a bad day to be a college student, though, apparently — look how non-hood that fucking hoodie is! If it said “USC” instead of “Obama,” your editrix would have already seen it 15 times this morning on people walking their dogs on her block. Oh well. Please go put on something more appropriate, college students and former college students, like perhaps a nice Burberry trench, or a classy peacoat. Or an opera cape! Let’s bring opera capes back please. Whatever it is white people wear. Patagonia? [GatewayPundit]

Meanwhile the price for White Hoods doubled.

ChernobylSoup April 10, 2012 at 11:32 am

Supply and demand.

Chill-A-Sketch April 10, 2012 at 11:39 am

Especially with the emergence of "Civil Rights Groups" in Florida.

Limeylizzie April 10, 2012 at 11:30 am

Best Obama-wear is to be found on 125th Street in Harlem, I have a t-shirt , from 2008, that has Barry looking all sexy and says, in 70s style font-"Mr.November".

WhatTheHeck April 10, 2012 at 11:37 am

Well Lizzie, would you wear it if it was 50% off?

Never mind, I think I’ve got you covered on that one.

actor212 April 10, 2012 at 11:51 am

She might not, but I'd love to see her in it…

Steverino247 April 10, 2012 at 1:07 pm

Or, uh, out of it…

bagofmice April 10, 2012 at 1:49 pm

At least 50% off?

OneYieldRegular April 10, 2012 at 1:51 pm

That'll make for a great Thanksgiving party favor. What can I bring?

Limeylizzie April 10, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Just yourself.

imissopus April 10, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Bonus hipster points: "Mr. November" was the closing track off the National's 2006 album Alligator.

Limeylizzie April 10, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Even cooler than I had realised, it is an awesome t–shirt and I will be sporting it again when the weather is warmer.

ifthethunderdontgetya April 10, 2012 at 11:32 am

I know! Call on me, Mr. Kotter!

Because Jim Hoft is one of the stupidest individuals on the planet, and reading anything he scribbled down is bound to adversely affect one's brain?

Texan_Bulldog April 10, 2012 at 11:34 am

$40 for a damn hoodie probably made in Sri Lanka is the real crime!

Lascauxcaveman April 10, 2012 at 11:46 am

For real. Even the custom embroidered polar fleece jackets I buy for my employees are only $35. But I guess they're not considered a campaign donation, either.

Chill-A-Sketch April 10, 2012 at 11:55 am

So you are a jerb creatur? I thought Wonkette was only for unemployable librul slackers living off the gubmint's teat.

Lascauxcaveman April 10, 2012 at 11:59 am

I am, in fact, a job creator. My employees are underpaid but well dressed.

Besides, it's cheaper to buy them each a nice fleece than to heat the building.

James Michael Curley April 10, 2012 at 12:01 pm

Will you buy me a Burberry's Trench Coat if I work for you? I drove over the last one.

actor212 April 10, 2012 at 11:53 am

Made in USA

So are his tube socks for fapping

Steverino247 April 10, 2012 at 1:09 pm

And the legs inside those tube socks are worth fapping to.

PuglyDoRight April 11, 2012 at 7:27 am

Pretty sure every Obama item (and all Dem items) are USA and union made. Holla!

Not_So_Much April 10, 2012 at 11:34 am

How about the Muslin robes? They're still a deal, right?

SorosBot April 10, 2012 at 11:34 am

I think the white college students tend to just go to class in their pajamas half the time these days.

Lascauxcaveman April 10, 2012 at 11:50 am

My favorite campus clothes story: When I was in college, there was this lovely Irish girl in one of my classes, and one day she came to class with a beautiful sweater that said "Guinness" on it. I was chatting her up and asked where one gets such a great sweater.

"Me mum knitted it for me."

Limeylizzie April 10, 2012 at 11:53 am

We knitters are beyond excellent!

MissTaken April 10, 2012 at 11:50 am

It's cold and rainy in SF today, I would love to be in my pajamas right now.

nounverb911 April 10, 2012 at 11:35 am

Can I get it wholesale?

Gratuitous World April 10, 2012 at 11:36 am

but they'll be issued free-of-charge upon admission to FEMA internment camps.

ChernobylSoup April 10, 2012 at 11:36 am

Kmart discontinued the blue light special on _____ yesterday. I'm claiming victory for _____.

Are you gonna pick up some White Kasuls along with the Cakes we like at the store?

Schmannnity April 10, 2012 at 11:36 am

Wouldn't cancelling the sale lead to greater "profiting" on Trayvon? Is a Gateway Pundit like a gateway drug–a gateway to greater stupidity?

Lascauxcaveman April 10, 2012 at 11:54 am

No, they're just using conservative math: e.g. lower taxes = higher tax revenues.

sullivanst April 10, 2012 at 11:55 am

Yes. Your Gateway Pundit dealer will try to get you hooked on Allahpundit.

memzilla April 10, 2012 at 11:37 am

Meanwhile, Team Rmoney has increased by $10 the price of its Burberry dog leashes.

Barb April 10, 2012 at 11:37 am

I wouldn't mind wearing Obama's shirt on my way out of the White House at 6 A.M.
Lizzie, are you with me?

Geminisunmars April 10, 2012 at 11:49 am

Me too. Me too!

Limeylizzie April 10, 2012 at 11:55 am

It's, at least, a 4-way for Barry!

Limeylizzie April 10, 2012 at 11:54 am

We could wear Obama pajamas, I bet you have better legs than me so you wear the top and I'll wear the bottoms.

Steverino247 April 10, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Pay-per-view charges should pretty much take care of the deficit, too.

thebeatgoeson April 11, 2012 at 10:10 pm

We're ALL with you!

YasserArraFeck April 10, 2012 at 11:38 am

Can't wait for American Apparel to start porn-modeling their Sweatshop-free Mormon undies.

Goonemeritus April 10, 2012 at 11:39 am

I will stick with my beret in honor of Che, most other head coverings make me look like a degenerate Monk or a teapot cozy.

memzilla April 10, 2012 at 11:41 am

I have a feeling that the Rmoney Campaign isn't going to be selling anything by Kangol…

freakishlywrong April 10, 2012 at 11:39 am

Yay! Another nontroversy! Oh and "Twitchy" could be called "Bitchy". It's the unholy anchor baby of the ever gracious Malkin.

Goonemeritus April 10, 2012 at 11:40 am

But are they still discounting the “Free Huey” tee-shirts?

MozakiBlocks April 10, 2012 at 11:41 am

Only white folks are allowed to wear hoods.

kissawookiee April 10, 2012 at 11:41 am

If it's back up to $50 I'm going to need to steal two white people's bikes now to cover it.

Blueb4sunrise April 10, 2012 at 11:48 am

Edroso relates a comment at Daily Caller. Was it you?

I stole your bike. I only did it because you're a wanker. I didn't actually want it, or want to sell it for drugs or beer or anything. I just wanted to throw it in the river. So I threw it in the river.

actor212 April 10, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Wow. That's some serious Cannondale hating…

elviouslyqueer April 10, 2012 at 11:42 am

Whatever it is white people wear. Patagonia?

No no, Rebecca. Patagonia is for librul tree-hugging fags from Oregon. Real white folks only wear the finest camo, purchased on the Faded Glory clearance rack, and available at your local Wal-Mart.

freakishlywrong April 10, 2012 at 11:44 am

Real white folks = Real Muricans.

Limeylizzie April 10, 2012 at 11:56 am

Patagonia? MLimeylizzie would consider that furiously non-hip and he's an oldz.

DoggerelCDogg April 10, 2012 at 11:42 am

Back in 1980, the ultimate gay fashion statement was a grey hoodie worn under an olive green bomber jacket. You wore this with Levi's and Timberland hiking boots. Everyone on Christopher Street wore this exact same uniform. Wonder what they'r wearing now?

James Michael Curley April 10, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Pea coats are back. Based only on the denizens of the Christopher St. Path Station.

elviouslyqueer April 10, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Anoraks, even when it's 112 degrees outside.

MissTaken April 10, 2012 at 11:42 am

I got accosted by a giant lemon in front of Lululemon the other day and nearly spilled my iced green tea latte. The lemon wasn't wearing a hoodie, so I didn't shoot it.

It's tough being a white.

Chichikovovich April 10, 2012 at 11:45 am

Haven't you ever heard the old Ann Landers advice? "If life gives you lemons, blast its head off!"

actor212 April 10, 2012 at 11:56 am

I'd find that grating

bagofmice April 10, 2012 at 1:53 pm

When life gives you the squeeze, make some lemonade.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 10, 2012 at 11:59 am

When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade – make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

bagofmice April 10, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Lemon rinds are already filled with naphtha. Lemon scented napalm!

Steverino247 April 10, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Stay away from the brown acid…

imissopus April 10, 2012 at 3:13 pm

"When life gives you lemons, throw them back in the face of the person until they give you the oranges you originally asked for!"

Oh Phil Hartman, you are missed.

freakishlywrong April 10, 2012 at 11:42 am

I'm getting worried about all these wingnuts. That constant state of outrage can cause constipation or a blockage or something. Then, they'll only be able to shit out of their mouths.

Jus_Wonderin April 10, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Aren't they to that point already? <g>

Gleem McShineys April 10, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Jesus, you mean Gateway Pundit could be completely shuttered, if someone just got that guy some laxatives?

imissopus April 10, 2012 at 3:09 pm

Or possibly laid. Have you ever seen a picture of Jim Hoft?

bureaucrap April 10, 2012 at 11:44 am

Still, you have to love the logic. Obama campaign "taking advantage" and "playing the race card" by charging $10 LESS. Do these people not understand what the english phrase "taking advantage" means? I wish my local Safeway would "take advantage" of me like that.

Chichikovovich April 10, 2012 at 11:51 am

Don't you get it? The Demon-rats want everybody to wear hoodies, so that it will be hard to tell which ones are the real gangsta thugs. It's a clever trap: Law-abiding whites standing their ground against suspicious strangers might learn after the fact that the suspicious black guy they had just killed was the 50-year old chief of cardiac surgery at the university hospital. Now that would just look really bad when the newspapers got ahold of it. The brave patriot would probably not only be arrested, but would have to pay a hefty fine.

donner_froh April 10, 2012 at 11:45 am

Twitchy should ask if Team Romney capitalizing on right wing stupidity. But since they are stupid they won't.

edgydrifter April 10, 2012 at 11:46 am

I don't care if you're a cause I support or Aeropostale–I'm not giving you money to be your fucking billboard. It's supposed to work the other way around. Cheap plain-front hoodies FTW.

deanbooth April 10, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Me too. No words or pictures on anything I wear. I see it more as a privacy thing, the same reason I never post anything on Facebook.

A few weeks ago I got a fleece jacket to wear around the house ($5!). It has a "Beverley Hills Polo Club" logo on it. Does anyone buy such a thing because they are impressed by the logo? Is it like Superman pajamas for dimwitted adults?

actor212 April 10, 2012 at 11:46 am

Oh great! So we get to pay bust out retail? What are we, Protestants?

Blueb4sunrise April 10, 2012 at 11:50 am

Wal-Mart sweater vests are a lot cheaper.

Native_of_SL_UT April 10, 2012 at 11:52 am

First, free basketballs with Obama's picture on them and now this.
I'm starting to think this country is going to be truly fucked by these major scandals. The Republic is on the brink. Marshall law is right around the corner.

How'd they get a giraffe to wear that hoodie? That guy has one long neck!

mavenmaven April 10, 2012 at 12:05 pm

I suppose we'll see the Team Romney trucker hats, for real merkunz, any day now.

owhatever April 10, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Romney store is offering a two-for-one special on magic underwear.

James Michael Curley April 10, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Stupid Wingnut Forks! Quite regularly the Obama Campaign site chooses a different item for a discount. Next will be the B&E set with the Charlotte 2012 commemorative jimmy.

Sassomatic April 10, 2012 at 12:26 pm

A ten dollar discount? Ah yes, the ole' reverse price gouging. Of course.

ttommyunger April 11, 2012 at 10:16 am

FINALLY! Grounds for Impeachment!

WonkCynic April 13, 2012 at 5:23 pm

To celebrate all the dead arab women, elderly, and kids that Obama has murdered with drones in the past three years, this hoodie will soon be replaced with a new hoodie with the words, "Kill a Sand Nigga' Mama fo' Obama" on the front and the back. All money made from the sale of these new hoodies will be used to purchase more drones so that Obama can continue murdering little sand niggaz. If the body count gets high enough the Nobel Peace hippocrites will reward him with a second affirmative action "Peace" prize.
