This weekend I had the bright idea that it would be fun to make a bumper sticker that reads, "Don’t Blame Me, I Voted for Gore and Kerry." Then I decided to search the web to see if anyone else had already had that idea. Wow.
First of all, you can get the above slogan on a t-shirt. And you can get each of them separately on bumper stickers; in fact, there’s an entire web site called dontblamemeivoted4kerry.com. Not to be confused with dontblamemeivotedforkerry.com, of course. Someone more conspiracy-oriented than me would probably assume that these sites are operated by Grover Norquist.
Truth be told, after scanning a few of these sites the slogans become tiresome and petty quickly, perhaps because there’s only so much one can take of being against something. I mean, what pleasure is there in sporting a bumper sticker that reads "I Voted for Gore and Kerry and I TOLD You So!"?
