The 2008 political campaign has thus far been marked by all sorts of petty nonsense — everything from pantsuits to religious fervor seems to be on peoples’ minds. There is no point more sensitive than that of the lapel pin — a 5¢ piece of tin that apparently indicates one’s abilities to be President. But let’s take a design point of view:
Since Mr. Obama promotes himself as the candidate of change, maybe he should start wearing a different kind of lapel pin that signals his patriotism as well as other values he wants to communicate.
The results range from witty to lame, but worth a look.
I’d like to think I would seize at the chance to be ironic. I’ll save this one for when I run for Congress representing New York’s 13th district (Williamsburg and Greenpoint). The hipsters will love this.
