T-shirts with Biden comment selling out

WASHINGTON, April 2 (UPI) -- A grassroots arm of the U.S. Democratic National Committee predicts its "Big (expletive) Deal" T-shirts will sell better than Apple's iPads.

Organizing for American representative Brandi Hoffine says the $25 shirts printed with Vice President Joe Biden's recent comment on healthcare legislation sold out the first night they were offered, The Hill reports.

Hoffine predicts in an e-mail the shirts will sell "faster than iPads this weekend."

The shirts display the remark Biden whispered to President Barack Obama after introducing the president at the signing of the healthcare reform bill last week.

Podium microphones captured Biden telling the president "This is a big (expletive) deal."

The remark ended up becoming a rally cry for Democrats and Organizing for America decided to have T-shirts printed with it on the front.
