Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The Republican National Committee has rolled out a colorful new incentive to solicit cash donations: George H.W. Bush striped socks. The "limited-edition" hosiery, which comes in orange, yellow, green and blue stripes, features mini elephants and an embroidered Bush signature.

"Everyone wants @GeorgeHWBush socks!" tweeted the RNC this morning, with a photo of said socks and Bush Sr. looking very pleased (the socks are also "the life of the party"). They're free with any donation of $35 or more.
