Just Sayin's All...

Why does Alloy feature this "Vote John McCain" t-shirt on their site? It's curious, a) because I can't think of a single teenager or young adult who would be caught dead supporting John McCain unless their overbearing, right-wing parents are making them, even if it does reference beer... and it's curious, b) because they have no "Vote Obama" shirt on their site... oh wait! I just found "Save the Drama for Obama"... a relatively neutral call to action.

I sent them an email.

Little known fact about yours truly: I am a Grandpa Simpson-esque writer of letters. Oh! And I make phonecalls too, usually because they result in coupons for free things. Free things I've received in the past: Frusion smoothies, tampons, Snyder's of Hanover pretzels.

Perhaps I should call 1-800-Tokidoki and tell them how much I love those Cactus Pups? -- especially the tan one with the little ghoul friend?

Those nylon toys are adorable...my latest addiction!
I think McCain has merits, as does Obama and they both have their faults. Really the paraphanelia associated with both is making me sick...

Damn, those little guys are a-freakin-dorable!

Maybe Alloy is run by a bunch of conservative goons? Let us know how/if they respond to yr e-mail.

That is really weird.

I don't really like the idea of clothes+politics anyways =\
I would most certainly call up somewhere if it would mean getting my hands on one of those adorable cactus pups!

Hi all! Sorry so late on the comments! Sal-- they did actually respond to my email and pointed out the "Save the Drama for Obama tee". I say phooey.

K. Inez-- Girl, this world is full of the freaky... and not in the omigod I freakin love that freaky shit kinda way!

She's Dressing Up: I agree. Even though I agree with the sentiment, I'm against those cutesy Recycling tees that proliferate at the moment as well.
