I know these are a little overdone, but Annik and I were kicking around some political ideas for tees - but wonder if these are overplayed. Should we throw a few through the FURY? Political Tees cool or lame? Please discuss or perhaps share ideas of what you would like to see - or if we should leave the whole political thing alone.

    I would prefer not. It's a niche that's been covered elsewhere.

    Though it was a nice surprise seeing the Obama shirt at DBH, cause I didn´t expect that to be printed, I think that only worked so well as an exception and as a surprise, other than that I agree to the comments above. But of course I can imagine themes like environment, war, whatever, if it´s well done, so do not avoid politics, maybe just avoid politicians...

    ABSOLUTELY NOOOOOOO X 100.

    in my opinion, doing this would take away from the individualism and uniqueness of these great artists and would put a sour taste in my mouth. one that would take a lot more than listerine to get rid of.

    haha, well I'm gonna be the first to disagree here, I'm in favor of it. I think you can be political without being offensive, I've seen many tasteful political designs, and for myself I like doing political designs that have a message of peace, which I don't see as being offensive but some people do no matter what the design is saying.

    So, in interest of diversity which the fury seems to be all about I say take a couple shots, if it looks like noone is buying then scratch it.

    even without it being a matter of offensive to people or not...simply NO

    I think social commentary on a political topic would be fine if printed very occasionally – not more the one or two a month if even that many. I think a shirt regarding a politician would be a no for me.

    I would worry about it becoming an excuse for people to bash others or the artist because they don't agree. I realize people express opinions already but you add politics into that and everything seems to get more heated.

    I like the whole unique artistic value of teefury. Throwing political tees into the pond would just ruin it for me.

    everyone seems so against it, it seems like it would be a great idea.

    i bought an Obama shirt, and i dont follow the political news whatsoever, or have a strong opinion about it, or even get shirts much at all especially big print ones. young people are wrong... big prints arent cool, theyre gaudy.

    i thought it would be a good buy as a 'back when in 2008' kinda shirt. kinda like my stick man pearl jam shirt. lot more worth if its connected to an year, than some cool design that doesnt date whatsoever.

    but im crazy so...

    yes.

    hah, you are crazy jimiyo! I would have to say... I don't think so. People just get so hostile about political leanings and the like that it never seems like you can get an accurate balanced message out of a single shirt without people throwing a fit. Maybe if it's more than just an Obama shirt... or McCain shirt (is their such a thing??) then it could work but I have to agree with some other people that just the face/slogan tees have been done already. Although I do think kind of a cool idea might be a shirt that somehow gets the message across to vote on it... Something with a sweet design. Just my two cents.

    shiiiiiiiiiiiii, i read something about how they choose shirts to be printed at anothersite... controversy, and the amount of hate and love. and its obvious you guys would HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE some political shirts. Its on everyones agenda. The media coverage wont stop until November...

    how bout

    mortal kombat style Mccain vs Obama posing with their fists up.
    i dont know what their special weapons would be.

    if it was Street Fighter whatever, you could call on the VPees as special attacks.

    Palin would attack with self righteous rhetoric of invincibility...

    and

    Biden would attack with... I dont know.. I know nothing of him. He seems to have stiff hair. He could attack you with a stiff hair hairbutt.
