Tell your Mama to vote for Obama contest!

Since the Democratic National Convention starts today, I thought I’d share some Barack Obama indie-made goods with you.  I know I don’t really get political on this blog, but considering the DNC is this week and that Obama picked his running mate from my little state of Delaware, I though it might be timely to share some Obama goods for all those who want to show their support for Obama. However, I will not be telling you who  I will be voting for….I will tell you who I’m not voting for though. In the words of Paris Hilton, I am not voting for that “wrinkly white-haired dude.”;)

You can see all the Obama goodies I discovered down below.  But first, if you are an Obama supporter, enter to win a “Tell Your Mama to Vote for Obama” tee from Octopedal Arts. It’s available for purchase in men’s,  women’s  and now children’s sizes in a variety of colors. See more here.

To enter the contest: leave a comment on this post about why you want to tell your Mama to vote for Obama. The contest ends Friday, August 29th at 11:59 EST. I will pick one random commenter to win a “Tell Your Mama to Vote for Obama” tee from Octopedal Arts. The winner will have their choice of a men’s,  women’s or children’s tee.


Now on to my picks for indie-made Obama goodies. Whether you want to wear a tee, some earrings or a necklace, I’ve included some cool stuff for you to show your support for Obama.  There’s even some goods to show your dog’s, toddler’s, Blythe doll’s and tofu’s support!

    I don’t have to tell my mama to vote for Obama. Who do you think raised me to vote liberal? The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!

    i love that tshirt! everyone with a small child should have one. so cute!

  • August 29, 2008 at 10:54 pm

    I tell everyone who will listen to vote for Obama! We need a breath of fresh air, and we need to be respected once again on the world stage.

  • August 29, 2008 at 5:44 pm

    I am from Iowa, and we know Obama! He is real-he cares. We need a change!

  • August 29, 2008 at 3:10 pm

    I’m telling my mama to vote for Obama because it is the right thing to do. My parents, 85 yrs old, actually were all behind Obama since the beginning but I think their die-hard Republican ways got the better of them and they havev switched sides. I need to bring them back from the dard side. VOTE FOR OBAMA, MAMA!!!

  • August 29, 2008 at 10:59 am

    Because John McCain may care, but he just doesn’t get it. We need more than a good soldier to lead our country – we need Obama!

  • August 29, 2008 at 10:44 am

    I want my mama to vote for Obama because my dad is voting for McCain and I want to outnumber him in the household.

  • August 29, 2008 at 10:42 am

    Because Obama knows what’s going on. And I believe him when he speaks, and he says things that I’ve been thinking for years, but much more articulately!

  • August 29, 2008 at 10:09 am

    Because he is such a hope for a better america, that even if i am canadian, i’d cross the border to vote for him!!!

  • August 29, 2008 at 8:49 am

    I’m telling my Mama and her Mama because they live in a place where their votes will really matter: a place where many people vote Republican out of fear. I’ll tell all the Mamas if I get that shirt!

  • August 29, 2008 at 8:08 am

    Because he’s a smart cookie and we NEED someone intelligent to run this country.

  • August 29, 2008 at 7:26 am

    Because change is good. I know that change is hard for you, but you’ve always moved fearlessly forward when change was absolutely necessary. This is one of those times.

  • August 29, 2008 at 4:00 am

    For change and a fresh start.

  • August 29, 2008 at 12:40 am

    It’s time for change. It’s time for someone with fresh new ideas. My mama needs to stop believing everything she reads in Forward emails and start listening to what each candidate has to say.

  • August 29, 2008 at 12:31 am

    not only did i already tell my mama, i left her with a stack of articles and essays to read because she’s on the fence and leaning toward McCain. Mama’s vote is crucial! We need you, mama! Please! For the love of god, think of the children!

  • August 28, 2008 at 11:18 am

    Im telling my Mama to vote for Obama………………because its time for a change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love that shirt, I would wear it with pride!

  • August 28, 2008 at 11:16 am

    My mama already knows to vote for Obama. I am tired of the same old politics, same old tired excuses, and I don’t want to hear about who is sleeping with whom. I want a candidate who will stick to the issues, admit when he makes a mistake (we all make mistakes) and do what is necessary to improve America.

  • August 28, 2008 at 1:23 am

    Because Obama is so inspirational (from the breaking-new-ground aspect to his amazing speeches). I don’t know that I can convince my mama to vote for Obama, but he makes me want to keep trying!

  • August 26, 2008 at 7:39 pm

    I’m telling my mama to vote for Obama because maybe we do need a little “political naivety” to get things done in Washington. Lack of experience is great when experience is synonymous with cronyism, favoritism, coercion, and special interests.

  • August 26, 2008 at 6:25 pm

    I want my Mama to vote for Obama because voting for McCain means possibly electing another pro-life president in the White House. Even if my Mama can’t have any more kids, she still believes in a women’s right to choose. In addition, her finances are suffering because of Bush…she can’t afford to retire just yet.

  • August 26, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    I will tell her to vote for Obama because I am actually a little bit hopeful for once. I think that his background and perspective are different from any other president that we have had and I think that’s a good thing.

  • August 26, 2008 at 1:14 pm

    Obama wants to bring our US soldiers home. He has a plan to effectively get the soldiers out of Iraq. I don’t personally know any of these soldiers, but I can imagine that many families miss and worry about their sons, daughters, siblings, cousins and parents everyday. We shouldn’t have entered Iraq and I look forward to Obama getting the US out of Iraq.

  • August 26, 2008 at 10:41 am

    I’m telling every mama to vote for Obama because he represents the direction our future needs to take…it’s what mama wants for her children.

  • August 26, 2008 at 3:52 am

    i already told my mama to vote for obama since although she’s a lifelong repub, she’s felt the hurt economically that the past eight years has brought, and although it’s taken longer than it should have, she no longer supports the war in iraq. she’s ready for change, along with the rest of the country! 🙂

  • August 26, 2008 at 12:29 am

    Mama needs ta vote for Obama because we’re in the shitter and he’s the only one who can dig us out of the pile of crap bush’s left behind.

  • August 25, 2008 at 11:10 pm

    I’m telling the whole family to vote for Obama!

  • August 25, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    Because of his vision for the future and ability to inspire hope and excitement in a time when those qualities have been seriously lacking.


  • August 25, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    I’ve already told my mama to vote for Obama–and I think she’s told everyone she knows (many times over)that they should vote for Obama, too! But, seriously, Barack Obama’s the first candidate for political office that I’ve ever really believed in. I believe that he can bring the right people together to tackle the tough problems faced by our nation and world. Yes We Can!

  • August 25, 2008 at 6:55 pm

    Mom, I know you voted for Bush and I forgive you. Please don’t put McCain in office. You are on a fixed income and he’s not going to help you at all. Bring on Obama. Yeah, I know really wanted Hillary, but I’m not a sore looser — Bring on Obama. Love you.

  • August 25, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    Jen, I LOVE this post! We need to vote for Obama because our country can’t take another 4 years of Bush. (McCain is essentially a continuation of Bush, and that is scary!) Obama stands for hope and change, and I’m all for that!

  • August 25, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    I’m telling my mama because he’s so crafty!

  • August 25, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    obama represents more than just a change from the bush administration…he represents hope for our country. he represents a fresh, new, young perspective who is willing to think globally and empathize with the rest of the world. obama = awesome

  • August 25, 2008 at 12:35 pm

    Because we need change, yo! I’m telling everyone, not just my mama! 🙂
