Default Tea Party Protests Create Online Sales Boom

Tea Party Protests Create Online Sales Boom

Grassroots organizations have produced a cottage industry of Tea Party-themed products that are funding nationwide protests of government spending and bailouts -- and generating their own mini-stimulus to boot.

Excerpts:

Quote:
Online retailers are recording hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales of mugs and sweats, buttons and bumper stickers, with much of the proceeds going toward organizing the tax-day tea parties, takeoffs on the original 1773 protest of British taxes.
Quote:
"Pro-Obama merchandise had been popular all of last year. In the last couple of months we've seen anti-Obama products begin to increase in popularity and sales numbers," Kang told FOXNews.com.
Quote:
"It's kind of been a little bit surprising how much enthusiasm there is out there," said Chad Peace, a co-founder of ReTeaParty.com, which is planning follow-up events for July 4 and has already seen over $10,000 in sales.

Sounds like another marketing scam.

You know people, always gotta make money off of something.
