The Finer Things Club is endorsing Obama.
On a recent outing to lunch in Tyson's Corner, I got stuck behind a car with the following bumper sticker...No, I would not even call it a bumper sticker. It was more of a homemade BANNER, printed on an Epson in someone's home office, possibly laminated, and prominently affixed to the trunk of the car in all of its glory. It read, "REPUBLICAN: BECAUSE NOT EVERYONE CAN BE ON WELFARE."
Now I was directly behind this vehicle, and immediately upon seeing this monstrosity, I started gnashing my teeth and came dangerously (deliciously) close to honking my horn and pumping my fist in the air, before proceeding to other, more obscene, gestures. The passenger in my car, a more conservative member of society than myself, physically restrained me.
I wonder what my politically dumb trunk banner would say if I had one? "DEMOCRAT: BECAUSE I CARE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE." Or maybe my fuel-efficient Accord would look good in, "DEMOCRAT. AT LEAST I'M NOT IN FOREIGN OIL ADDICTS ANONYMOUS (FOAA)." Or the ever scathing, "DEMOCRATS: BECAUSE MY CANDIDATES CAN WRITE THEIR OWN BOOKS." Shit, I am not any good at this. But I do really like this article.
P.S. Remind me to remove this post after I have simmered down. I'd give it another week or two.
