Which would YOU buy?

Shopping for bargains at the after holiday sales today and came across these:


Check out the expression on Mitt's face! LOL




Now here's what's interesting. There was only ONE Chia Obama but about 15 Chia Romneys.

This was almost as funny as the time I found Sarah Palin's book at Dollar Tree - for $1.00.

What was that about the party that knows more about business and sales?

1. On a similar, semi-related note ...

A few years ago (but well after the 2004 election), I saw a few cameras on sale at a chain dept. store.

Something I noticed made me seek out the salesperson to ask a question.

I asked ... "You have two cameras, virtually identical. The only difference is that the one marked $15 is blue, the one marked $5 is red. Why?" (there were multiples of both colors, identical models, identical maker; just different colors).

She had no idea why the red was more "financially desirable" than the blue. Orders from above.

Made me wonder. And this wasn't the first time I'd noticed that there were subtle shifts in the idea of "red" being desirable over "blue" in subtle means ...

Think: Charmin toilet tissue. Red packaging - "STRONG". Blue packaging - "soft".

2. Romney's chia looks more like actor Fredric March.

No offense to him. Great actor in the 30s-60s.

3. Nine bucks for a chia anything

is nine bucks more than I would pay for either of them! But I am glad to hear that the Romney chias were languishing on the shelf.

Actually, this Christmas, I put my foot down and said we should not do gifts in the future.....or everyone gets a chia pet.
