When we travel, my favorite souvenir is a coffee mug. I drink from my Amtrak mug and remember the trip on the Empire Builder. I sip from my lobster mug and remember Nova Scotia. Whenever I finish a major project, I like to pull out my "ducks in a row" mug to show that I do, indeed, have all my ducks in a row.
Now I found another mug, a historic mug, that I must have.
Last year, President Obama said, "I can't go around with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead." When he released the long version because his short version wasn't good enough for the conspiracy theorists, he told reporters that he didn't have time for this silliness. He had more important things to do. A few days later, he announced that Osama bin Laden had been found and killed. Ahem.
To thumb my nose at those who still don't understand that Hawaii is one of the United States, the Democrats have come up with the perfect mug.
Go ahead; go to this link and make a donation of $15 or more and get the Born in the USA mug. Stay active and stay caffeinated and get yourself a piece of history at the same time. I plan on it.
Disclaimer: I am active in progressive politics, including Organizing for America, but I was not paid or sponsored in any way for this post. This mug was too good to pass up.Stumble It!
