AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 12/16/2004 01:30:00 PM ----- BODY: Random Thought - Driving to lunch today, I was briefly behind the car of a liberal. How did I know it was a liberal? Well, it was pretty easy. Maine is a liberal state, so seeing the back of a car literally covered with bumper stickers is nothing unusual. I couldn't help but think that liberals are always calling President Bush stupid and accuse conservatives of having a simplistic worldview. If we're the ones with the simplistic worldview, then why are liberals more often the ones who define their political philosphy with bumper-sticker logic and cute catchprases? (line credit: Supertones) Of course, I would be hard-pressed to tell you what this person actually believed, as 99 percent of the bumper stickers on his car communicated to the world his hatred of Bush. On the plus side, though, he didn't have a Kerry/Edwards sticker on his car, like so many other liberals. The stickers of the losing ticket seem to be staying on cars far longer this year. Perhaps it's a passive-aggressive form of protest? A refusal to acknowledge the truth of Bush's win? --------
