Have you seen these?
Now, I've never been a big fan of W. I didn't vote for him the 2nd time (unlike some people I know), and I realize he's made mistakes while in office. But this? It feels a lot like scapegoating to me. I don't think he can shoulder ALL the blame for the mess our country is in right now.
But that's not my point.
I was driving behind a car that had one of these stickers on it yesterday. And I feel I must vent a bit... in typical Lewis list form:
1. Why on earth would you put such a time-sensitive bumper sticker on your car? It's like when I see people drive by with Kerry-Edwards stickers on the rear of their automobiles. Do we even remember who those guys were by now? I mean, come on.
2. Why would you put a STICKER on your car to begin with? Who spends 20-40 K on something, and then goobs it up with stickers that cost $1.50? When I inherited the Chevy Citation from Laura in 1990, that thing was a piece. My dear friend Kristin suggested we snazz it up a bit with some bumper stickers, or maybe by paint splattering it. Even at the tender age of 16, I knew that would make the car worse, not better.
3. And if you are going to put a bumper sticker on your car (I'm sure some of you have, and when my daughter is on the honor roll there's a good chance I'll throw caution to the wind and stick one on myself), wouldn't you TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE SURE IT WAS CENTERED AND PUT ON STRAIGHT? The car I was behind had just haphazardly stuck the 1.20.09 sticker up, in the general vicinity of the trunk lock and at about a 37 degree angle. Are you kidding me? I was so distracted by the unevenness of it all, I nearly ran a red light.
Can you hear me sighing over the internet???
