Everyone's favorite Wingnut Kash Beauchamp has made quite a name for himself. According to Deadspin, Wingnut merchandise sales are through the roof.
And I'd be remiss if I didn't point out something that commenter and Wingnuts fan Tiffany brought this to our attention last week. Tiffany's comment, which is available for all to see at the bottom of this post, told us that:
"As a result of the incident, Beauchamp and the Wingnuts announced today that they will hold a charity auction of Beauchamp's uniform for Southwest Christian Care in Atlanta, GA. Southwest Christian Care serves terminally ill patients and special needs children. Its services are provided to patients and their families at no cost. Beauchamp is from the Atlanta area. His father, who died late last year, was a scout for the Atlanta Braves organization. Items to be auctioned off include the uniform jersey, hat and turf shoes worn by Beauchamp during his ejection."
First off, the auction move is classy (although who would want this stuff?) so give Kash and the organization some credit and also give him credit for raising the visibility of wingnuts everywhere - I hear lug nuts are getting jealous.
