In case you missed it, the conservative blogosphere is delighting in the fact that the Obama campaign is running a 25% off sale on its merchandise. Reports Breitbart:

This morning, the Obama Store 2012 sent out an email just in time for the Democratic National Convention: all gear is 25% off on all purchases more than $10 or more! Is this just a last-minute attempt to reap dollars off of those too stingy to buy Obama gear at full price? Or is this the sign of a campaign desperate to rake in the cash before they go completely out of business?

Twitter has promptly blown up with jokes about Obama’s 25% off sale. Among many, many others, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul couldn’t help tweeting about it:


Our first reaction to this was “Seriously? All of this because of a sale? Who the hell cares?”

Our second reaction was “Hmmm, I wonder if Mitt Romney’s campaign has held a similar sale recently?” — because Republicans have this uncanny way of making sure that every single one of their talking points is stuffed with as much irony as humanly possible. Seriously, there is a  dude right now in Williamsburg wearing a handlebar mustache going “Damn, those Republicans are really out-ironying us. Maybe we should move to Tampa? Cause I feel like Brooklyn is totally gentrified now, and obviously Tampa is where all the real irony is at.” And the girl standing next to him wearing grannie glasses is all “Dude, I knew about Tampa before it was cool.

Anyway, we decided to see whether Mitt Romney’s campaign had run a similar sale on their own merchandise recently. Here’s what we found:

Why yes, the already dubious joke about Obama running a 25%-off sale on campaign merchandise is, in fact, entirely hypocritical. The Romney campaign ran the exact same 25%-off sale last month.

    What, you expect the Republicans to check the facts? Romney's camp has made it very clear that they're not going to let their campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.
