Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will give up her gavel to a GOP successor following Tuesday's midterm election. But a whole bevy of "Speaker Pelosi" themed items are still available online, and they're about to become either collectors' treasures or trash, depending on who you ask.
Among them, a "Speaker Pelosi" popcorn tin, which comes filled with three flavors of popcorn and costs $35, and an organic brown baby-doll t-shirt emblazoned with the slogan "A woman's place is in the house ... as Speaker" that goes for $20.
One might also consider the "Speaker Pelosi" frisbee, which costs a mere $1.99.
The items above were all available Wednesday evening through the official Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) website, My Democratic Store.com.
A spokesman for the DCCC declined to say what might happen to the products when Pelosi is no longer in the top spot.
But one thing seems certain: "Speaker Pelosi" gear won't be marked down for quick sale. At least not as long as the same website still offers outdated "Health Care Reform NOW!" decals at full price.
Over at the Republican National Committee's online store, the merchandise is more up-to-date. "I Fired Pelosi" t-shirts were on sale Wednesday, just hours after the House majority changed hands.
I’m surprised pelosi memorabilia exist. Stuff with her name on it. I do admit I have a broom but it’s a generic one. The real ones must have been sold out. Pelosi brooms that is.
Among them, a "Speaker Pelosi" popcorn tin, which comes filled with three flavors of popcorn and costs $35What are the 3 flavors? Socialist, Marxist, and Communist? And I must say, at a mere $35 that Speaker Pelosi tin is a steal. She cost the rest of us $5,000,000,000,000.
I want a Pelosi Vampire Doll with a wooden stake through it’s heart! Oh, wait a minute! She didn’t have a heart!!
Or crashes it into the Pentagon...
About the only thing selling in this economy!
How much for the Pelosi broom? (the original one she uses)
Do they have a Pelosi Toilette Cover?
I wouldn’t mind having a cup for those long cross country drives when you really don’t want to make a bathroom stop. One with her picture on the inside of the cup would be perfect.
Macabre memorabilia genre?
Some of the popcorn tins would make nice range targets.
Might consider buying the frisbee, I bet it spins really good...
The only good thing about her losing her personal jet is that we don’t have to pay for her trips anymore.
She will now have to fly Southwest Airlines. The really good thing about that is that all bags fly free.
