‘Obamica’ and ‘McCippah’

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer discovers a new way Jews can support their candidate of choice:

Forget about yard signs, buttons and bumper stickers.

What better way to support your favorite presidential candidate then donning a kippah, the traditional skull cap worn by Jewish men.

At least that’s the idea of Shmuel Tennenhaus, who after quitting his day job at a Bellevue Internet company two months ago decided to plunge head first into the world of political kippahs.

The first products: the “Obamica” and “McCippah.” Both sell for $15.95 on Tennenhaus’ new Web site, VanityKippah.com.
