Republicanmarket, a vendor at the Texas Republican Convention, was selling this button:
Speechless. I saw this thing several days ago, but resisted the urge to blog about it, thinking it was so out of bounds, so vile, so ridiculous that it wasn’t worth my time. Since then, however, several bloggers (see Great Lakes, Great Times, Great Scott, burntorangereport.com, and Zennies Zeitgeist) have done the right thing (sorry, guys) and called for action. So, I’m waking up and joining in. If you’re as offended as we are, please contact these folks at Republicanmarket via email: sales@republicanmarket. Do I think they’ll listen? Probably not. But it’ll be fun to clog up their email box anyway. And it’s worth a shot that someone there will have a moral compass. Please also contact Tina Benkiser, the head of the Texas GOP at email@example.com, and tell her what you think of their sponsoring this vendor at their convention.
