Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all. I’m not really all that into this festive day but I can be dragged along to get into the fun now and then. That said, A friend has been wearing this O’Bama shirt all day today.
And what it makes me think of is Sarah Palin as depicted in the film Game Change repeatedly saying “O’Biden.”
I really, really want a green O’Biden shirt, coffee mug, refrigerator magnet, bumper sticker. . .And to be totally balanced, I’d enjoy some O’Romney paraphernalia too. Someone get Cafe Press on it.
Happy St. Patrick’s to all of the O’Bidens and all of you!
