The Swag the RNC Gives the Media

Frankly, I expected more.

Here are the entire contents of the "Busch Gardens" bag given to the media today:

- "No Apologies" by Mitt Romney

- Battery-powered mini-fan from vote4energy.org

- Sunglasses from vote4energy.org

- Suncreen from (guess who?) vote4energy.org

- A magazine I had not heard of called "Baypop" with glossy models sporting Young Republican gear

- Two brochures from the University of Tampa (what, no University of South Florida?)

- The official media guide and regular guide to the convention

By the way, according to its website: Vote4Energy is a project of the American Petroleum Institute representing more than 490 oil and natural gas companies.
