Gee, you liberals are so HATEFUL

Yeah, it's a shame, ain't it.

We don't make money selling reasonable, rational, fair-minded stuff like this to our side.

You can get this sticker, which isn't sexist or crude or stupid at all. Just a legitimate political view. And besides, the Republicans all feel that Hillary really got a raw deal, remember? They're full of compassion for her and her poor agreived followers.

And calling all liberals "Commies" is still real popular among the Republican brain trust.

This one is a real knee-slapper. Oh those zany Republicans and what they call humor. As fresh as today's headlines, if by "today's" you mean 50 years ago. Can't accuse them of living in the past.

It says "Nyet". That's Russian. Hillary's a commie, get it! ZING! Ouch, that hurts! Make 'em stop! I think I busted a stich. What'll they come up with next?

Heck, they loves them some Hillary now. Really feel like she got ripped off. But that doesn't mean that they don't think she's Stalin in a pantsuit. Check out this hilarious and patriotic shirt. So subtle, it's really clever, don't you think? A real plus for our political discourse, to be sure.

And for those who didn't get the memo about the end of the cold war, here's what every well-dressed Republican fossil will be wearing this campaign season. Boy, won't that impress people? Yowsa! Free Gary Powers!!

Of course, if you're a shrewd investor, you might want to snap up some of these items supporting the guy Republicans touted as the "next Reagan", until it became apparent he wasn't even the next Alan Keyes. Keep hope alive!!

And these examples are really, REALLY tame compared to some warm and fuzzy right wing super-macho views. These folks want you to know that they're oozing testosterone and all man. (until you ask them if they're enlist.)

But the shirt that really needs to be worn, if for no other reason than to warn other sane people to move to the other side of the street if they see you coming, is this gem. POW! All the wit and subtlety of a monster truck rally. It's got it all. That famous laugh-out-loud Republican wit, the not-so-veiled racism, and the intelligent, fact basesd political argument Republicans have come to rely on. (Well, really, it's all they got. What are they going to do, argue they got it right the past 8 years?)

It's a shame us Democrats and liberals can't be as sober and rational in our choice of what to wear and stick on our vehicles. Our discourse is so crude and, of course, "hateful". The Republicans who are so fond of hurling that term around at anyone who refuses to pretend failed, immoral, greedy, irresponsible, and destructive Republican policies deserve to be taken seriously are so right.

Compared to the brain numbing stupidity and gross distortions their supporters engage in regularly, I have a lot of work to do.

Yes, there is negativity on both sides. My favorite t-shirt slogan is the one that says "I'd Rather Be a Conservative Nut Job than a Liberal with No Nuts and No Job".

Sorry to hear that.

And why do young people like to wear red t-shirts with that great Marxist-Leninist, Che Guevera on the front?? Gee, how "progressive".

Nico,

That's news to me. I didn't know young people like to wear t-shirts with Che on them.

The last time I saw his image on a shirt it was being worn by Eric Burdon of the Animals at some nostalgia show in front of an audience who were all in their 60s.

Really. You've got to wean yourself off of your stereotype habit.

I've never seen a young person wear a Che t-shirt. Have you? (I mean in person.)

Somehow I don't see it as some big trend.

It's the same B.S. the Republicans use to get folks in a lather. Like the flag burning bullshit, or late-term abortions.

How many times is a flag burned in protest? Don't know? Neither do I.

I'd wager maybe once or twice a year. Maybe not at all. Surely if it happened, it would be front page news and covered on Fox around the clock. I don't think it happens at all.

But Republicans acted like they were having a stroke about this entirely mythical epidemic of flag burning. Ridiculous.

Same with late-term abortions. It happens almost never, and then only when the life of the mother is threatened and as a last resort.

You never hear that, do you?

Your puppet-masters have you thinking it goes on hundred of times a day.

Really, learn to be more skeptical.

Apparently you need to get your head out of the sand. This is a growing fad and supported by the Hollywood left.

Here is one site:

If this is how you form your political opinions, you're hopeless.

Basing some absolutely ridiculous assumption on......

Tee-shirts???!!!!

Really, you've lost your marbles if you're such a frightened little right-wing bunny that you're alarmed that a miniscule handful of people might wear a tee-shirt with the picture of Che Gueverra, who is still a reverred hero in South and Central American and hailed as a liberator of the people there who were oppressed and abused and forced to work for nothing to enrich the elite.

Not sure that's such a bad thing, but that's besides the point.

You really, REALLY have your head up your ass. Your fantasies about the "Hollywood liberals" and what tee-shirts they wear, as if that really indicates some huge political force in the country.

Get serious, or don't waste people's time.
