You Can Now Buy a Rick Perry Mugshot T-Shirt from Your Friends at RickPAC

Continuing to make hay while the sun shines, RickPAC, our esteemed governor's political action committee, is now selling T-shirts featuring his mugshot.

The shirts, available for a minimum donation of $25, feature the aforementioned mugshot with the word "WANTED" stamped across the top. Perry's crime, according to the shirts? "Securing the border and defeating Democrats."

The shirts' reverse features the mugshot of Rosemary Lehmberg, the Travis County district attorney whose DWI started the ball rolling that eventually led to Perry's recent indictment on charges he abused his office by pressuring her to resign. According to the shirt, she is "GUILTY" of "driving while intoxicated and perversion of justice."

They'd be more stylish if Perry had been allowed to keep his glasses on for his close-up, we have to say. We only hope that, in the surely unlikely scenario that Perry is booked again, he'll have the foresight to wear one of the shirts, creating a mugshot infinite regression like this guy did last week.
