Palin paraphernalia skyrockets

Sarah Palin paraphernalia is rivaling Barack Obama merchandise now on sites like CafePress and eBay, CNN reports.

Within hours of McCain's announcement, CafePress had 2,000 McCain-Palin products. Now, there are 323,000, CNN reports.

On eBay last week, listings for Palin-related items increased by 354 percent while Sen. Joe Biden items decreased by 11 percent, Kristi Keck writes.

Several of the Values Voter Summit attendees wore "Palin power" stickers, but I saw few people with McCain paraphernalia.

Several people flocked a man who was selling Sarah Palin buttons at the summit on Friday. On Saturday, they were sold out with just John McCain, Ronald Reagan and anti-Obama buttons left.

Comments

Cafe Press is an amazing social experiment and societal gage.

I'm voting for a president, not a vice president. I don't care if Billy Graham is Obama's VP, he ain't getting my vote - cuz Obama ain't either. What the heck is going on in our country??

no offense, McCain and palin suck.
what if you were a sixteen year old who got raped...would you want an abortion?
do you want everyone roaming around with no restraints on guns?
PALINS NATIONAL EXPIERIENCE IS THAT SHE CAN SEE RUSSIA FROM HER HOUSE
PALIN WAS THE MAYOR OF MORE MOOSE THAN PEOPLE
MCCAIN LEFT HIS WIFE BECAUSE SHE GOT DISFIGURED IN A CAR ACCIDENT

is this really who you want for president and vice?

The indisputable fact is Obama is the most merchandised politican ever. No one comes close. When it comes to prices he also clobbers Palin. There are a multitude of Obama buttons that sell for hundreds of dollars, and the highest price to date is $3700. There are no Palin buttons that come anywhere close to $100.
