T-Shirt Sales: Mitt Romney Finally Catches Up With Sarah Palin
"CafePress.com, which lets customers design and sell their own clothing items and other merchandise, finds that in December, Palin-inspired gear far outsold items featuring Romney, 80 percent to 20 percent. An average of 137,000 designs are uploaded to the website each week."
Palin`s followers are fanatical, and they will buy any merchandise that depicts Palin in a positive light. The former beauty queen is a rock star, and her groupies love to display their adoration for their idol.
Palin has so many catchphrases that are tailor-made for T-shirts: Going Rogue, Mama Grizzly, You Betcha! What`s a Romney T-short going to say, It would be prudent to vote for Romney?
Mitt Romney on the other hand doesn`t have the charisma of a rock star, he has all the sex appeal of a constipated accountant. He has a tepid supporters, who are always on the lookout for a more exciting candidate to support. I`m surprised Romney moves any product; I have never seen anyone wearing a Romney T-shirt.
It was only this month that Romney has been able to surpass the former beauty queen, but I bet that nobody who bought a Romney shirt is actually wearing it.
