How to win a political debate with only the t-shirt on your back

10.3.2008

By Seth Plattner

With the VP debates now over, and both parties sitting comfortably after a stalemate showdown between Biden and Palin, today we continue our ongoing series of politically-inspired fashion options that we'd consider wearing out in
public without facing death -- if only a social one -- by
embarrassment.  Our previous post looked at what Obama had to offer through his Runway to Change campaign, so now we look to the other side of the aisle (hey, just like our candidates do!) to see what's available to McCain supporters -- or just hipsters who want to be ironic.

We like this tee because, no matter how hard it is

Remember that hipster irony we talked about? This would be the requisite shirt.  Also from the Republican collection from Complex.com.

If you are a Republican, there's no doubt you're well acquainted
with the typical Republican outfit: polo shirt and khakis. Maybe shake things up and go for a
simple polo with a conservative elephant symbol on the breast. Available, and customizable, at Cafepress.com.

More to come from the campaign runways!
