Martha's Vineyard Hot New Fashion: Bush T-shirts

Call him a flash in the pan. President Obama's ridiculously unfounded popularity, based on the fact the man could read from a teleprompter, hasn't lasted long even in Martha's Vineyard. There's something about actions and words and one louder than the other that fits here.

Obama and family, going for their PhD in vacationing, are heading to Martha's Vineyard for their fourth or fifth vacation in as many weeks. Last year, while Obama unwound from his exhausting speeches, golf games and appearances on Letterman, the family vacationed in Martha's Vineyard while, in equal parts fanaticism and disillusionment, people couldn't get enough of Obama gear.

This year? Bush's "Miss Me Yet?" t-shirts are the hot seller on Martha's Vineyard. Check out the video here.

If the coming fall fashions weren't bad enough news, Bush is polling six-points higher than Obama in "Frontline" districts. And last time I checked, Bush wasn't running.
A prominent Democratic pollster is circulating a survey that shows George W. Bush is 6 points more popular than President Obama in “Frontline” districts — seats held by Democrats that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sees as most vulnerable to Republican takeover. That Bush is more popular than Obama in Democratic-held seats is cause for outright fear.
What would Scooby-Do say to a Democrat at a time like this? Something like, "Rut Roh."
