Edited on Wed Feb-13-08 09:07 PM by K Gardner

  - My size.......I assume you are sending those to me, right?  Hepburn   Feb-13-08 08:23 PM   #9 
  - Dude, it's one pop-artist, making a statement on modern iconography, much in the vein of Warhol.  Occam Bandage   Feb-13-08 08:21 PM   #5 
  - Shhh, they don't understand "inspiration"...  Kristi1696   Feb-13-08 08:25 PM   #16

     - I seriously doubt that.  cottonseed   Feb-13-08 10:24 PM   #97 
  - Right. It is about the symbols and the slogans, not the issues. Some just don't get it  RestoreGore   Feb-13-08 08:26 PM   #21 
  - I'm sure you'd be as upset if Hillary Clinton were attracting the same type of attention.  thecatburgler   Feb-13-08 08:27 PM   #25 
  - yes I would, because I am consistent. And I'm sure you would be trashing it..  RestoreGore   Feb-13-08 08:30 PM   #32 
  - Why would I be trashing what one independent pop-artist wants to do?  Occam Bandage   Feb-13-08 08:35 PM   #42 
  - Yeah right. nt  thecatburgler   Feb-13-08 08:46 PM   #

  - That's different - no one has actually purchased one of these.  cottonseed   Feb-13-08 08:30 PM   #31 
  - That just might be the tackiest campaign stunt of the century  mtnsnake   Feb-13-08 08:25 PM   #18 
  - The tackiest campaign stunt not involving a campaign?  Occam Bandage   Feb-13-08 08:26 PM   #22
