In Marin, 9 out of 10 bumperstickers one sees are liberal in context. Make that 9.9 out of 10.
There’s the “Endless This War” sticker; and the still popular “Somewhere in Texas a village is missing its idiot” sticker; and the saccharine, unrealistic and facile “Coexist,” with the symbols of various religions used in lieu of letters. More concretely, there are uncountable Gore and Kerry bumper stickers on older model cars. And with increasing frequency, there are the “Barack ’08″ and “Change ’08″ bumper stickers. Those last are popping out like fungus after a rainfall.
But today I saw a lovely first. It was a “Hillary” sticker, partially overlaid by a “McCain” sticker. I gather that someone is deeply offended that a woman who has paid her dues (and this is true whether or not one likes her), has been cast aside for a man who has paid nothing.
