Someone pulled a bumper sticker off my car while it was in a parking lot. How rude! However, I’m not sure it had the effect that the person intended.
As you may have guessed, it was a political bumper sticker. Nothing offensive. It was just an old Obama 2008 sticker.
I can only assume that some conservative Republican pulled it off because they don’t like Obama. But let’s think about this for a minute. If you pull a bumper sticker off my car, then I have to replace it. In the case of an Obama sticker, that means paying Obama’s campaign fund to send me a new one. Which means that, because of this person’s actions, I just donated five dollars to Obama’s re-election campaign which I otherwise would not have. I can only speculate that this was not the result that this person was going for.
As a side note, I also had a Darwin fish magnet on my car which they didn’t even touch, which puzzles me. I always thought that was far more offensive than the Obama one. After all, the campaign sticker just supports the Democratic candidate. The Darwin fish insults Creationists.
People are strange.
Obama seeks support from underrepresented minority groups.
