When the health care reform bill passed last week, a pesky stage microphone caught Vice President Joe Biden eloquently explaining the historical significance of the bill to Barack Obama in no uncertain terms: “This is a big f&$#ing deal!”
Biden’s gaffe became a pretty big deal of its own as it was picked up by major media outlets, but now the Obama administration is cashing in. I’m not sure if this has anything to do with April Fool’s Day, but a pretty hilarious custom t-shirt that reads “Health Reform is a BFD” is now for sale in Obama’s official swag store.
The product description is pretty funny as well: “There are things that are a big deal — birthdays, anniversaries, the NCAA Championship game. And then there are things that are a BFD, like delivering health insurance to 32 million Americans. We worked hard together to make health reform a reality, and now you can celebrate this historic victory with this shirt.”
