In Kenya, Romney is President

I’ve always been amused by the fact that t-shirts and hats that are printed for sports teams that don’t win, which thus can’t be sold, are sent to poor countries around the world. Somewhere there’s a village in Cambodia that thinks the Buffalo Bills are the greatest football team ever after winning four straight super bowls. Turns out the same thing happens with losing presidential candidates:

President Obama might have ancestral roots in Kenya, but at least one school in Kenya is all about former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

The Knox County Romney Campaign of Tennessee has outfitted some 200 children at the Orbit Village Project in Nairobi, Kenya with leftover Romney campaign t-shirts from the 2012 election cycle.

Alexander Waters, the campaign director for the Knox County Romney Campaign, explained to The Daily Caller that his group decided to send the shirts to the school and refuge as Waters’ aunt, Cyndy Waters, runs the project and its American base is in Sevierville, Tenn.

“I mentioned to her that we had a lot of shirts and that we were wondering if they had a need for them and she said, ‘Yes, that would be great.’ So instead of putting them into a storage unit or something we were like, ‘We can generate some good out of these shirts,’” Waters said.

“I’ve been over there and a shirt can go a long way,” he added.

And I agree. I’m glad they did this. But it’s still a bit ironic that it’s in Kenya, the nation our Muslim communist dictator was born in.

    To be fair, there are plenty of places in the US where they think Romney won the election as well. Faux News for example…

    Then what’s with the Yankee hats? They’re everywhere. No matter how remote an area is, there they are. A documentary in the depths of the Amazon – there’s a fisherman with a Yankee hat. Interview in caves with Syrian rebels…one wearing a Yankee hat. Ah, tribal goat herders in the Calahari..wearing Yankee hats.

    Try it. Watch the background on the news. Their everywhere. It’s an invasion or something. Isn’t Manchester United supposed to be the most popular team in the world’s most popular sport? Not judging by the hats.

    I hate the Yankees.

    The comments on that article are fairly putrid, as well as contradictory. Apparently this proves that conservatives are doing God’s work in giving goodies to the disadvantaged, while Obama is in league with the devil for giving goodies to the lazy and shiftless. Go figure.

    I don’t know why the T-shirt manufacturers don’t just make use of Obama’s time machine and stop themselves from printing the wrong shirts.

    @5 – True, but I’ve known many a Man U supporter, and not one of them wore a Man U hat. It could be that using hats to mark your support for teams, rather than jerseys, is a primarily North American thing, and thus you’re more likely to see hats for North American sports. Since in a crowd, hats are much easier to pick out than t-shirts or jerseys, which are hidden past the first row, that could easily create a sampling bias.

    Ahh, but remember: the disadvantaged in Kenya can’t vote Democratic over here. Giving shirts to the lazy and shiftless in the US will help those parasites to live long enough to vote for the Democrats.

    Or something.
