Political Hot Button Pinned Topic

Inspired by Plecostomus' thread.

What are some of your favorite humorous political (or other) buttons and pins? Let's try and avoid anything overtly controversial or offensive and just stick to things that are harmless and funny.

Or if there are some historical political buttons you like, please post those as well. I hope we can avoid controversy on the board if a button badmouths James K. Polk or something.

What the hell, let's throw in bumper sticker and t-shirts too.

Give me a break. I just grabbed some random ones for examples to get started.

The Emo for Obama one is awesome.

I also like the sporking one, though I don't get how it has anything to do with politics.

It doesn't. That would fall under the "other" category.

This thread is about "harmless" and funny, historical, political buttons and pins. It is not a place for tasteless threadbombs and partisan jabs (as are some of the examples in the above post). Keep this in mind, please, if you decide to post in this thread.
