It was a historic moment. Moving people across generations and races, and now, you too can own a piece of history. It wouldn’t be a real historic moment without some swag you could take home to prove that it actually happened, and you paid attention long enough to pull out your credit card. Is there a better way to remember this moment? A moment that defines a generation and breaks a new barrier in race relations. Let us answer: no, how could you remember without your special CNN headline t-shirt? It’s impossible. If there is anything to love about America it has to be our swag. Nothing is sacred until we immortalize it on a t-shirt or a button. So where can you find the best inaugural swag? On the internet of course.
Banagram’s Presidential Table
What better way to express your approval of your country then a virtual board you can use for the Bananagram Facebook application? That’s right — Facebook. You can use the Presidential table while simultaneously showcasing your approving Facebook status (that you updated via Twitter). Hot damn, tell the entire world how historic Obama’s inauguration was!
CNN Headline T-Shirts
Let’s face it, if you followed our liveblog yesterday, CNN is the most prestigous name in journalism. When talking about professionalism, you naturally think of CNN. So, how can you combine your two loves: CNN and Inaugural awesomeness? The CNN Headline T-shirt. For about 15 bucks, you’ll never forget CNN’s coverage and Obama’s history making day.
Some Jerk’s CafePress
In an unprecedented move of synergy, it looks like CafePress, The Rolling Stone and Rock The Vote are all about the swag. The Obama Inauguration store is up and taking your orders. They got buttons, tote bags, a free hat (if you spend $50!) and even stationery. This, honestly, is the place to go if you’re feeling lost without any inaugural memories. What better way to express your excitement then writing a birthday card without Obama’s face on the front?
The Inaugural DVD
The best swag, obviously, is available at the official inaugural site. Including this $30 CD/DVD set that includes tracks by Maroon 5, Death Cab for Cutie, Common and Stevie Wonder. Yep, when you thought there was no way to combine their musical stylings (or need to) in an single album — Obama has done it. That’s how inspiring this man will be — he can make the mixtape from hell possible. The CD/DVD set also includes some of Obama’s moving campaign trail speeches. Don’t forget to check out the other swag at the official store — including wine glasses and more tote bags!
Get your Inaugural swag now America! If you don’t it’s like this never happened, and no one will believe when you said you watched it on TV.
