official obama buttons

After Friday’s post, I was curious about the official stores of McCain and Obama, specifically the buttons. Political buttons are great fun. McCain’s buttons start at $5. Greedy bastard. Obama’s buttons start at $2. I was all set to buy the beautiful Obama pin shown above ($2) only to find out the only shipping option offered is UPS which amounts to $7.80. That’s not very efficient. $7.80 to ship one lousy button? I know for a fact that to ship one button via USPS does not cost more than $1. I’m very disappointed in all this.

Oh did I only give the link to Obama’s button shop and not McCain’s? Whoops.

I’ve had the same kind of dilemma when I’m shopping online: what if the shipping and “handling” costs are more than what I’m actually buying? Then I ask myself if I would pay $10, for example, for the Barack button. If I think I would, I ignore the shipping and other costs and go ahead with the purchase.

The 1″ white pinback is my favorite.
