Team Obama’s Hoodies Sale Canceled After Conservative Outrage

Obama Campaign decides that hawking hoodies during Trayvon controversy is as tawdry as it appears.
The sale is off—

Team Obama canceled their shameless hoodie sale this past week.
Yahoo reported:

President Obama recently said that if he had a son, he’d look like murder victim Trayvon Martin. And in what some conservatives see as a direct connection between the national controversy surrounding the teen’s death, the Obama 2012 re-election campaign announced via Twitter on Monday that it was putting its collegiate hooded sweatshirt on sale.

The sweatshirt was temporarily discounted to $40 from its regular $50 listing. However, the tweet announcing the sale has apparently been removed and following the hooded sweatshirt link at Obama’s campaign re-election site store shows the clothing item listed at its regular $50 price.

Obama’s critics on the right had a field day with the questionable Twitter posting, with the conservative blog Gateway Pundit calling it “disgusting,” and the website Twitchy asking if  “Team Obama is capitalizing on Treyvon Martin’s death?”
