It’s not very good news when The New Republic and Keith Olbermann are making fun of the three guys in the Abercrombie T-Shirts standing behind you while you make you concession speech:
Maybe we haven’t seen enough video from Indiana yet (cue the weeks until May 6th), but the risers behind Obama as he speaks tonight look, I think, different. They host a single lady, a trio of young men in totally blatant Abercrombie and Fitch tees, and a couple straight out of American Gothic. No one looks that jazzed, especially the Grant Wood couple, but there must be some truth to those reports about Obama staffers tweaking the riser demographics.
Update: Olbermann (and Mike) reference the product placement. Not crazy.
And you too can dress like an Obamaist for the low, low price of $34.50!
If you want to order the A&F catalog and you live in the USA, however, you’re out of luck. Since it’s basically regarded as porn, you’ll have to buy a bootleg on Ebay or travel to the UK where it’s on sale. And the cost of the catalog so you can dress like all the cool kids who support Obama? $200.
Who knew populism was so expensive (and funny looking)?
