Mind the Gap, Mind the Gap!

Posted on: October 30, 2008

There are posts here, and here about The Gap Inc.’s election celebration, giddy populism and the barely stifled Obama-love. There is also the fracas about the childish buttons that read VOTE TWICE. LiveLeak post linked below also has a number of pics of the tshirts on display at one local store.

When customers enter the store, they are confronted by a table of T-shirts so that consumers can fill in the blank with their Sharpie markers of who or what they wish to vote for. Mannequins wear buttons mimicking campaign pins and perhaps the most disturbing of all reads “Vote Twice” [sic]

To make matters worse, the lyrics of the music repeat “vote for change”. Why does Gap not simply put a giant “Vote for Obama” sticker on the storefront instead of this sorry attempt at disguising it as a nonpartisan ad campaign? Drawing a blank on an overpriced T-shirt likely produced in a sweatshop overseas does not mask the undertones and liberal agenda of the Gap clothing company. If Obama is elected and raises taxes on corporations, the irony of this will be complete.

And the Gap corporations view of all this, here it is via Malkin:

Gap has always stood for self-expression and individuality, and with one of the nation’s most important elections on the horizon, we’ve launched a program that encourages people to express their opinions and ideas. The Limited Edition Vote Buttons were designed by ten renowned artists, and the “VOTE TWICE!” button was designed by John Waters. Also, a portion of the proceeds from every button sold will go to “Declare Yourself”.

We value each of our employees’ and our customers’ unique ideas and opinions. It is not our intention to offend anyone in any way.

There, that’s it.  Just simple fun. Hookay then ..

  • Slaying Salmon July 15, 2014
    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

    On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher derided the Senate Republican health care plan as being like "a manifesto from the Zodiac killer," and trashed Republican Senator Ted Cruz as someone who does not believe the bill is "mean" enough, and who has experience at "making people sick." He ended the sho […]
