Paul, Cain, Gingrich and Santorum Sell Campaign Gear Not Made in America

This is like Campaign 101, people. If you're running for president of the United States, you have to sell t-shirts that were made in America:

ABC News, which previously revealed that Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum were selling campaign T-shirts and other gear made outside the United States, has now found two other campaigns selling not-made-in-the-U.S.A. merchandise: Herman Cain and Ron Paul.

"No, I wasn't aware it was made in Honduras," Cain said in response. "I was just aware it was Fruit of the Loom ... which is an American company."

I'd call this amateur hour, but some of these folks have been running for eight to ten months now. Ron Paul has run for president 3 times, for Christ's sake. What does it say about these schmucks that they can't even get their own organizations to buy American?
