Political Babies on the Crawl

You've seen political bumper stickers, but have you considered using your baby as your mouthpiece? They're too young to speak, but some babies are getting political as parents latch on to baby clothes to broadcast their opinions with humor.

Poli-Baby.com, a company started by two siblings, Sarah and David Visintainer, offers a slew of "punny political baby wear." Poli-Baby onesies support such causes as "The National Rattle Association" for those in favor of the right of all babies to bear rattles, and "I will not be silenced," which sports an illustration of a pacifier, for First Amendment rights. If your baby has political aspirations, you could opt for "I will not be pushed around," which comes with an image of stroller. As with everything, politics has its price, $17 per onesie in this case, but the Poli-Baby is offering a 30 percent discount with the promo code: Political Baby through Oct. 9.

Find yourself in disagreement with just about everything? Browse babywit.com, where you can scoop up a "Dissident" mom and baby toddler set  for a mere $38. Babywit also offers "Obama 2012" onesies and baby T-shirts. A search for "Romney" returned no result on babywit.com, but Republicans can find support at cafepress.com, which has a supply of "wee-publican" infant body suits emblazoned with the party's symbolic red and blue elephant.

As Election Day draws nearer, I suspect we'll be seeing more political babies crawling out to play. To their parents, I say, "Seize the day." Before you know it, your babies will be teens who have their own opinions and will let you know them in no uncertain terms.
