Behind Enemy Lines: Bush 'Miss Me Yet' T-Shirts Spotted on Martha's Vineyard

Won't be long before the Secret Service is confiscating this dangerous paraphernalia.
There seems to be a bit of a sea change regarding President Obama’s popularity, as judged by the offerings of businesses along Circuit Avenue in Oak Bluffs.

In past years, shops displayed mainly supportive stuff, like t-shirts extolling Obama’s virtues. However, this year a smirking George W. Bush t-shirt is getting laughs from window shoppers. It reads: “Miss Me Yet? How’s that hopey-changey thing working out for ya?”

Also, Sharky’s Cantina, a Mexican joint on Circuit Avenue has discontinued their Barack-O-Taco and Barack-O-Guaco (guacamole) “due to the tough economy,” according to a sign outside the restaurant. The Obamarita still survives on the drinks menu, but it has been joined by a Perry Berry Tea-ni, a martini named for the Texas governor and Republican presidential nominee. Sharky’s is currently holding a (drinking) straw poll to gauge the popularity of the two contenders…
Next thing you know rebel tea party forces will be advancing on the Obama compound.
