Obama and the baby doll T


NYTimes had a fairly interesting commentary about whether the official merch sold by the presidential candidates is an indicator of their character and abilities. While some will read it and think it’s a stretch, or funny, I think there may really be something there, at least something worth continued analysis.  If nothing else, the idea is a look into the highly strategized and conceptualized way that politics tries to manipulate us, or, effectively communicate to us, or somewhere in between. In this era of endless political advisors, I cannot imagine so much as the shade of blue or the stitch on a Rudy hat goes without discussion. Look at the frenzy over Obama’s flag pin from a few weeks back (see previous post).
