There is nothing this nation needs more right now than the splashy new offerings from the official Fashion Designers for Obama campaign coalition group.
The 99% protesters who graduated college with tens of thousands of dollars in debt who can’t find jobs – they are absolutely looking to pick up the $55 tank top or the $95 silk scarf. The blue collar worker who got laid off in 2009 and still hasn’t found steady work can totally turn his life around with the Vera Wang campaign gear. And what single woman struggling to keep her job and balance the rising healthcare costs that are coming when her low-cost insurance is banned by Obamacare won’t see her life turned upside down with an $85 Diane von Furstenberg nylon totebag?
I’m not sure that tone deaf begins to adequately describe the campaign.
