I Hope These People are Embarressed Someday

If you've never visited Etsy I highly recommend taking a moment to check it out. It's an online space for artists and crafty folk to sell their wares. It also allows people to request items to be made ... maybe it's something you just can't find anywhere else. Someone on Etsy can probably make it for you.

However, lately when browsing through these Custom requests I've been feeling queasy. Maybe it's due to the people requesting all sorts of Obama items. From hair bows for their little girls to a guitar strap.

What is WRONG with these people?!?!

Was there ever a craze for George Bush hair bows? Somehow I don't think so. Or wall decals with his face? Talk about birth control.

And I can promise you that I will never make a Sarah Palin necklace.

I don't even want to wear MY name around my neck. Why in the world would I want the name of a politician on a necklace?

Talk about hero worship. I hope these people look back on their adoration of this man and blush in their embarrassment.

Not every artist on the site is brain dead like this ... but unfortunately it seems that the artistic world is over run with these zombies. I guess we now know how they're going to replace the thriving anti-Bush/Cheney shirts, buttons, and other merchandise.

I wonder if there will be marches on Washington with pro-Obama puppets.

Holy crow! I can't even begin to fathom this weird Obama cult.

Those special orders are creepy. Have you noticed that there are a LOT of Obama treasuries on Etsy? Which is fine, except that they don't just say "oh, isn't Obama awesome?" they also feel the need to bash Republicans while they're at it. The treasury makers AND the commenters.

So, while I think it is obnoxious to be so "in your face" on Etsy (very unprofessional, in my opinion), I do find it helpful to know which shops hate me so much. That way, I know who NOT to buy from. I refuse to purchase anything from someone who delights in insulting me and my opinions.

And, yeah... wait until Obama screws up the country even worse than Jimmy Carter. Will they be embarrassed? Or will they refuse to accept the truth about their Messiah? They won't be able to blame Republicans, so it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

Whew... sorry for the looooong comment.

No I LOVE your comment. It's exactly right. Are these people mental? Sheesh.

I tried searching for pro-republican stuff. Ha! It was a joke. Almost everything was anti-Sarah Palin or Bush / McCain bashing.


I don't always restrict my purchases based on politics but when someone is clearly insane I do avoid their shop. hahahaha

The funny thing is, that a few years ago, it would not have even mattered to me what people's political beliefs were. But now, they are so IN YOUR FACE with their crazy hatred that I can't bring myself to overlook it anymore. I figure that if they think I am so horrible for believing something different from them, I am doing them a favor by not tainting their shop with my dollars. hee hee.....
