7. Rhiannon-Marie Volpe
It seems to me that most of you will not have any idea who this fair lady is. Well, she’s the creator of one of the most popular (political) T-shirts among leftists in history. No, no, I’m not talking about those shirts glorifying the mass murderer Ché Guevara, pretending he was some kind of hero. No, I’m referring to the “Sarah Palin Is A Cunt” ones. Yeah, I know, not exactly an enlightening, intelligent text, but that doesn’t matter to our merry friends of the mainstream media. ABC News’ Political Punch, LA Times’ Top of the Ticket, and The Politico were more than happy to give Volpe all the attention she ever craved. They treated her as if she’s some kind of hero.
My internal debate was whether to go with the people wearing the t-shirts or the people who created them, thereby inspiring others to create similarly themed shirts?
I chose the creators because without the supply, there would not have been the demand.
Variations of the same theme were soon on the market, one example being shirts made stating “Sarah Palin: Putting the ‘Cunt’ back in our Country.” Ha-ha, I know, pretty clever. Not.
Places such as Zazzle.com continues to sell Anti-Palin “Sarah Palin is a cunt” t-shirts to this day. CafePress seems to have taken theirs off the site although the header for the page the shirts used to be found on still states “Palin cunt T-shirts, Shirts, Tees & Clothing.”
