That's right. I've driven around with an Obama 2008 bumper sticker on the back of my vehicle for the better part of four years. After all that time, weathering four Alaska winters, it was starting to crack and peel. You could see the Kerry 2004 sticker in a few spots, a different shade of blue was barely noticeable underneath. Both of them are gone now, carefully scraped away with a razor blade.
I got a "Vote Obama/Biden 2008" sticker from MoveOn.org. back then, too. It was oval-shaped, and had been on the front bumper for years. Buh-bye.
The Obama 2008 bumper sticker was right next to another sticker that read "Somewhere in Texas a Village is Missing its Idiot." That one had been there for about eight years, too. Bush may be long gone, but the disastrous results of his two stolen terms in office will remain with us for decades. And now that bumper sticker is gone, too.
It was time to accept the fact that the 2008 election is history, and it was time to get rid of those reminders.
Because it was time to put on my Obama 2012 sticker, instead. And there's an Obama-Alaska one on the front bumper, too. Whether I'm coming or going, my fellow Alaskans will know that the driver of this vehicle supports the current President of the United States. Our former Governor and current grifter extrordinaire can go jump in a lake. Few Alaskans give a rat's ass what she thinks, anyway. It's terrifying to even consider what our country would be like if McCain had won the last election, so let's not.
Despite the 24/7/365 lies and smears from the GOP and Fox News, our county is moving forward. Maybe not as fast as we should, but in the right direction at least. We can't wait, and we won't turn back.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm in.
UPDATE: Get out - rec list? Glad you enjoyed it.
UPDATE 2: Back from our hike. Can't tell you how pleased I am that this story resonated so much here. And since it's still on the rec list, I can't resist posting a picture of my little guy.
