I gotta get me one o' those.

Vice presidential hopeful Sara Palin now has a gift shop on her website with campaign related products designed to appeal to her most avid supporters.

"Every cent will go toward the McCain/Palin ticket," said the staff member overseeing the endeavor.

Product offerings have created a stir among Democrats who object to what they claim are racially charged items.

"Here's one example," said a representative from the Democratic National Committee (DNC). "They sell a 'Palin Rally Pack' that consists of a pitchfork, a torch, and rope. What kind of message is that trying to send?"

The DNC representative was also upset by the 'B.O. silhouette for target practice.' A spokesperson for Palin claimed the B.O. initials stood for 'Black Oppressor" and not Barak Obama.

The DNC rep was not convinced. "Either way, it's racially tinged. They're appealing to bigots and racists and inciting them toward violence."

According to the Palin team, the hottest selling item is the Anthrax Stationary Set, which includes the addresses of every senator and congressperson now in office. "As attractive as it is," noted the gift shop director, "the paper and ink are untraceable. It's the perfect Christmas gift."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
