Meg Whitman Campaigns At Internet Retailer Selling Anti-Whitman Merchandise 

Zazzle dot com(SAN JOSE, Calif.) -- Meg Whitman campaigned with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Friday in San Jose, Calif. at a company called Zazzle, which bills itself as “the leading platform for quality custom products.”

Turns out Zazzle.com has an extensive collection of anti-Meg Whitman tee shirts, bumper stickers, buttons, mugs, posters, key chains and all manner of paraphernalia with unflattering slogans like “Neg on Meg,” “eMeg” and “Meg MAID for governor” as well as depictions of Whitman wearing a queen’s crown.

Zazzle carries a wide array of less-than-complimentary items featuring Mayor Bloomberg too, including a button that calls him “the worm in the Big Apple.”

To be fair, the merchandise is created by outside sellers -- micro-retailers in Silicon Valley -- who promote their wares on the Zazzle Web site.

Of course, Zazzle carries pro-Whitman merchandise as well along with gifts for supporters and opponents of her gubernatorial opponent, Democrat Jerry Brown, the two contenders vying for the state’s U.S. Senate seat -- Sen. Barbara Boxer and Carly Fiorina -- and just about every well-known political figure.

The company’s home page also hints at bi-partisanship.  Featured items include a Palin 2012 tee shirt with an icon of a moose in American flag stripes on sale next to a button with the slogan “Dems Do It Better.”
