It’s been a little over four months since the election and a year since the primaries were all but decided, and I just saw my first campaign bumper sticker. For Bob Graham for President. And I live in Florida.

I may have mentioned here before the part of my America-Loves-a-Winner-and-I-Hate-That opinion as it relates to George W. Bush. How it seems like bumper stickers supporting Bush are more prevalent now than they were before the election. Stupid, right? Oh, and, the Internet, have I told you how much I hate those little black, indie-band-sized stickers that have the “W” and, underneath, “The President,” huh? Because if you really wanna support the president, be PROUD! Get a BIG bumper sticker in a bright, neon color. One that reads, “I (heart) Dubya . . . But Not Like That.” Or, “I Made the Right Choice for President. My Husband Said So.” Or, “Diebold Sure Knows How to Pick ‘Em. YEE-HAW!”



I think the strangest thing I’ve seen, which seems to support my theory of post-election Dubya band-wagonning, is a car with a Kerry-Edwards 2004 sticker half-pealed off (and half-torn), with a Bush-Cheney 2004 sticker right next to it.
