What an absolute hoot! I remember all the hoopla when the Obamas vacationed at Martha's Vineyard last summer. People were in celebratory mode selling all types of Obama gear. It kind of reminded me of what it was like Christmas shopping in 2008, when you couldn't escape all the Obama paraphernalia littering the malls.

I'm loving this. It must be killing the libs to hear this. How about it, Diogenes?

But so far this year, he said, his hot item is T-shirts of former President Bush asking, “Miss me yet?’’'"
