Rick Santorum is Hocking Sweater Vests

Yeah, he really is. The GOP presidential hopeful has been this campaign’s accidental hipster by constantly rocking (we use that term loosely) a sweater vest. The trend caught attention in Iowa and spawned Twitter and Tumblr pages. Now, Santorum is selling his own sweater vests. For $100 you can make a donation to Santorum’s campaign AND get your own Santorum-style sweater vest. Where do we sign up? Seriously, I want two. [Village Voice]

In the wake of this announcement, 6 ABC’s Jim Gardner had some fun with his Twitter followers by mocking the campaign contribution strategy. They did so by inserting “sweater vest” into infamous (mostly American, political) quotes.  Also, there’s an Andy Reid joke in there, just for good measure. Enjoy. [Storify]
