Bumper Stickers

It never fails to completely amaze me how many Obama / Biden bumper stickers I still see on cars on the road.

I mean, are the owners of these vehicles proud of their choice? Are they not aware of the rising national debt, the zero job growth, the unacceptably high unemployment rate around nine percent, gasoline prices hovering at $3.50, rising taxes (or the threat thereof), failed stimulus 1, failed stimulus 2, and any other big business bailouts not covered under failed stimuli 1 and 2? I mean, if this was George Bush, he’d have been crucified years ago in the press.

But hey, their guy speaks and looks good.

I wonder: how many Carter / Mondale bumper stickers were being proudly displayed back in 1980?
