Meanwhile, in DC... watching President Obama's announcement last night, we knew that Obama-got-Osama merch would soon be on its way—but we had no idea what quick turnaround there would be in the slogan tee industry. The folks over at Buzzfeed have already spotted a man on the street in DC hawking victory T-shirts emblazoned with a cartoon of President Obama catching Osama Bin Laden in a cave. The slogan reads: "It took Obama to catch Osama." Looking forward to seeing all the other imminent rhyming slogans to come. [Buzzfeed]
