Whitehouse’s Infamous Remarks: A Proposed Tee-Shirt

Governor Carcieri’s reaction Tuesday on FOX Business, principally to the price that states will pay for health care reform but also to the federal largesse that would soon ensure its passage in the Senate, inspires it.

… You said it very well. I mean, this looks like Let’s make a Deal. I don’t know what hapened to our senators. You know, it looks like all around me, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, Nebraska, Louisiana all cut a deal. What do we get here in Rhode Island for Rhode Islanders? We get our junior senator making embarrassing hate speech, frankly.

[Side note: WPRO’s Tara Granahan called Senator Whitehouse’s office Wednesday seeking reaction/explanation of the senator’s speech. They eventually returned her phone call … after she had been safely off the air for eleven minutes. Their comment? Perhaps the senator’s remarks had been taken out of context.]
In view of our (meaning that 47% of voters who voted the “wrong way” in November and/or that 80% of America satisfied with the current health care system – it’s not clear which the senator meant) previously unknown membership in an Aryan nation, I’m thinking white letters on a black tee:

The Senate was Handing out Barrels of Pork and all Rhody Got was a Lousy Hate Speech

Mr. Whitehouse was not speaking to, or for, Rhode Island. He was speaking to that tiny percentage which form his core constituancy. They will understand and approve.

I’d wear the saying if it were on the front opening of my boxers along with a cameo.
After all, I’d want Whitehouse in familiar company.

Monique, a couple of ideas for the tee’s.
Have pictures of the Dem party logo (the jack-ass) and Sheldon Whitehouse side by side with the caption underneath reading,
“Can you pick out Rhode Island’s junior Senator?”.
~or~ (my personal favorite)
Have a picture of Sheldon in his Sunday best (a nazi SS uni) with the caption reading, “To Aryan is human, to forgive divine”.

Btw if any of you AR bosses have artistic skills perhaps you can generate some visuals of these tee’s and post them on this blog? Somehow I think they’ll be a huge success across the country.

Great, I’ll get an early jump on my gift shopping for 2010.
Perhaps a talking Sheldon doll would be interesting. Matt Allen, of course, would have to do the voice, but all his dumb quotes since he was elected should be recorded for the dolls. I am sure the money could go to good govt groups to help run decent candidates against morons like Sheldon.

A picture of John Laroquette as Captain Stillman in “Stripes” ought to do the trick for a logo.
