We're Obsessed: The Coolest Barack Obama T-shirt Ever
I never thought I'd own a Barack Obama t-shirt, but I was wrong. Four nights ago, I was frantically booking it through Chinatown in the midst of a snowstorm, racing to hit up the liquor store before it shut down for the night (it was my first day of drinking after two weeks of stone-cold sobriety). I was listening to "Jennifer" by Faust and contemplating tying up my undone bootlace when I spotted this Holy Grail of Tees Please hanging in the window of a really cool little shop that also sells keychains shaped like startlingly realistic leaves of bok choy and a vast selection of CN Tower ashtrays. It was $8.99, and, just like the Troggs, I thought, "Gonna make you all mine, Barack Obama t-shirt."
This t-shirt is awesome to me because: a) the Barackster looks like such a playa in the photo; b) I find the designer's choice of keeping the whole image black-and-white except for B's red tie both poignant and enigmatic; it's like the "little girl in the red dress" (or was it a jacket?) scene in Schindler's List of weird Barack Obama clothes; and c) obviously the real kicker of this t-shirt is how it says Mr. Barack Obama- so bizarre!
