4. This is one of those weird ebay mysteries
I stumbled upon this sort of thing years ago and never could figure out if it was real or just a big joke or what. If it's real, then we know who that remaining 20% of Bush diehards are, because clearly there are severely disturbed people in this country.

I think that, if it is real, people do it via ebay as opposed to thrift stores, because of the anonymity involved.

What's really sad is that I have a whole bunch of old shoes that I would have donated to a thrift store long ago except that I keep thinking that maybe I should be listing them on ebay! I swear, even for people who don't have a foot fetish, I can't imagine buying used shoes - but yet, I also understand that if a shoe goes out of production and somebody really liked the style but wore theirs out, then ebay is pretty much the only alternative. So I have shoes from a couple of decades ago, lol, sitting in a box, awaiting the day when I have the nerve to list them.
