Team Obama canceled their shameless hoodie sale this past week.
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?”
