Republicans to Wear Zubaz at the RNC

RNC ZubazEarlier this week, the Mall of America played host to a Republican National Convention fashion show. If you think that sounds like an oxymoron—Republican National Convention? Fashion?—you’re right, and you haven’t even heard the best part.

As part of the RNC’s stubborn dedication to playing up its Minnesota-ness (the convention will be held in St. Paul September 1-4), it’s including Zubaz, a treasured Minnesota pajama-esque invention, in its collection of convention merchandise ($30, available in red, royal, and navy).

Slumber party at the RNC, anyone?
