T-Shirt Biz Speaks Truth to Power

Is there a sudden market for conservative t-shirts?  Apparently Bad Idea T-Shirts has upset liberals for responding to the market and trading their anti-conservative and anti-Obama t-shirts.
We're equal opportunity offenders. We've got what you need to reflect your political persuasion no matter what it is. We don't pick sides..our customers do and they love our anti obama shirts. Don't email us telling us that you hate us b/c we don't sell anti republican shirts...and that you were about to buy 6 or 9 but you won't now.....we have sold PRO OBAMA and anti republican designs in the past but they don't sell anymore so we removed them from the site. If you make you choice on politics on who you buy from, I am sure there are 1 or 2 stores out there that would love your money. We can't control you...we can only give you great deals! [excerpted from here; emphasis mine]
Don't brag too loudly about this.  Progressives will try to legislate that t-shirt companies have to sell equal amounts of conservative and liberal T-shirts, like they tried to do when conservative radio was more successful than liberal radio. (They still have NPR, so they can't say their point of view isn't subsidized at all.)

Funny post-script from the political page:

We have shirts like “Back to back World War champs” and “Made in the U.S.A.” that let the world know you’re proud to be American regardless of where you stand on Obama or the debt ceiling. Policy: It’s hard to get rid of an elected official you’re not happy with. But if for some reason you’re not pleased with your order, no problem, just let us know and we’ll set things right. Imagine how fabulous things would be if Washington had a return and exchange policy! [emphasis mine]
