Side By Side

I guess I’m surprised that they sell political t-shirts at Reagan National Airport — but they do.  There, side by side, you will find Hillary and Trump shirts and other paraphernalia.  So, if you haven’t already gotten your political fix just by being in D.C., you can buy a t-shirt on your way home to publicly proclaim your loyalty.

The cashier reports that the Hillary t-shirts are outselling the Trump t-shirts by a considerable margin.  

2008 Time Warp

IMG_3471In 2008, the President Obama “Hope” t-shirts and posters were everywhere, so popular that the image became iconic.  You don’t see the image much anymore, with President Obama’s approval ratings sinking in the direction of the 40 percent level, according to the Real Clear Politics average.  However, the “Hope” t-shirts are still being sold at a souvenir stand at Reagan National Airport for $12.99 apiece — although they don’t command nearly as much shelf space as brightly colored, generic “Washington D.C.” hoodies.
