Palin paraphernalia skyrockets

Sarah Palin paraphernalia is rivaling Barack Obama merchandise now on sites like CafePress and eBay, CNN reports.

Within hours of McCain's announcement, CafePress had 2,000 McCain-Palin products. Now, there are 323,000, CNN reports.

On eBay last week, listings for Palin-related items increased by 354 percent while Sen. Joe Biden items decreased by 11 percent, Kristi Keck writes.

Several of the Values Voter Summit attendees wore "Palin power" stickers, but I saw few people with McCain paraphernalia.

Several people flocked a man who was selling Sarah Palin buttons at the summit on Friday. On Saturday, they were sold out with just John McCain, Ronald Reagan and anti-Obama buttons left.
