The John McCain 100% Organic Cotton ‘Onesie?’


Greenwash on warm and discard as needed

john mccain, go green, onesie[social_buttons]Has your newborn already outgrown those Ronald Reagan ‘Trickle-Down Diaper Covers’ that were hand-me-downs from your cousin? Well, the long wait is finally over, because you can now wrap your newest neo-cons in the soft organic cotton of the John McCain ‘Onesie.’ And no, I’m not kidding.

In conjunction with the unveiling of its climate change policy earlier this week, the McCain campaign has added a new “Go Green” section to its campaign store, where supporters can purchase various “eco-friendly items” to proudly display their political support for the presumptive Republican presidential candidate. No small children? Don’t despair. The collection also features the “men’s Bamboo Pique short sleeve solid polo shirt” and the “ladies’ Eco-friendly basic cap sleeve crew neck tee,” both of which are made in the USA with a 70/30 bamboo/organic cotton blend.

I was also happy to learn that the items are described as “biodegradable and antibacterial.” That’s important, because when my current clothes get soiled or overcome with bacteria, I usually just throw them away, in stead of going through all the hassle of actually laundering them. I feel rest-assured knowing that any of my John McCain earth friendly clothing would simply decompose in the landfill when I throw them away – as opposed to the garments in my current wardrobe, which would undoubtedly sit around for millions of years before decomposing (thanks to Skye K. for the heads-up).

    Well, I found the perfect retort. Although, frankly, it's maybe a little much for the kids to be wearing.

    McCain Sucks Kids Shirt.

    Wow, this must mean that McCain really prioritizes environmental politics! What better way to act politically than to buy something, especially when you're concerned about environmental issues!(note: read very, very sarcastically)

  3. Bongo says:

    I'm confused by the first comment. McCain has been sucking kids shirts? Are they wet and soaked with arthritis medicine or something? Why would he be sucking them?

    HEy, did you see the Democratic National Committee Eco-Obama T Shirt? Isn't that just as silly, and it isn't even organic cotton!
