Who says Gov. Bobby Jindal doesn't have a sense of humor? After a Washington Post article questioned whether the presidential candidate had turned his back on his Indian heritage, Jindal made reference to the issue in his presidential announcement, saying he was "tanned, rested and ready" for the White House.
It was a playful allusion to an old bumper sticker featuring President Richard Nixon, but the line got a laugh at the speech and apparently inspired Team Jindal to create its first fundraising T-shirt. The "Tanned. Rested. Ready. Jindal 2016" shirt went on sale last week for a donation of $20. "The liberal media said, 'There's not much Indian left in Bobby Jindal,' so we made shirts to mock them," the Jindal website announced.
Even more playful was a disclaimer about the shirt that seemed to go unnoticed by political watchers: "Colors subject to change."
Teespring.com, a website that offers T-shirts, quickly put up a Crawfish for Prez parody T-shirt that reads "Red. Boiled. Ready. #Crawfish2016."
