Okay - so it is recycled, lame, old news, unclassy, yadayadayada. Let's call it PBATSS (Post Bush Administration Traumatic Stress Syndrome, soon to appear in the new DSM V - a syndrome that seems prevalent given how much tension there is on the posts on this site lately...).

AND as long as Palin is still in the news, you are likely to see me post more things with a sour face on... so just get used to it...


However, when I sent this to one of my Red friends, he replied with: "and lets add 'clinging to their guns and religion'..." and he replied with an attached Beretta ad...! You gotta keep some sense of humor.

This said, some people on this forum are taking some things waaaayyyy too seriously... IMHO... for whatever it is worth on this forum.


I still have my BUSH OUT license plate, and although it is soooo old news (last election) there isn't a day that passes by with someone giving me the thumbs up. Positive reinforcement is a strange thing... so over time I collected a host of bumber stickers:
Practice Abstinence in 2004: No Bush, No Dick
Worst. President. Ever.
Bring them home now
Of Course it Hurts, you are being screwed by an elephant!
and my favorite...
Dubya, your dad shoulda pulled out too!

Elections are over, but politics are not. And we'll have four years of "because of the Democrats" (fill in the blanks). It has already begun and he is not even in the office... Some pundit said that we are in this economic mess because of Obama. Go figure. So be it... not loosing sleep over that, but it will take a while to recover from the last eight years. Who knows how long PBATSS will last...

My favorite bumper sticker of the last 8 years:

When Government Lies, Democracy Dies

(I suppose there aren't any words that rhyme with "torture")

Will you try to scrape off these anachronisms?

I still have my BUSH OUT license plate

If it doesn't expire soon, might you have wasted some cash for this "vanity" plate?

Some pundit said that we are in this economic mess because of Obama.

In another thread, I posted a link to news of an impeach Obama movement. Look for post-election anti-Obama bumper stickers soon.

That had to have been these - as a data nut, I'm duly awed.



Mim, don't worry, Palin is busy digging her own political grave.

They pro-rate it, so there is no $ lost... and I might wait for my car to die - it is 12 years old with 200,000 miles on it. But it runs great. So who knows, it might last until the next election... so I might have to come up with a new plate soon...

Do you really think anything's going to change?...whoever has this on their car might as well keep it there.

If it was on my car, yea, I'd keep it there. As a "Never again" sort of reminder if nothing else. My take on it though is that the W admin. engaged in the most determined, orchestrated, widespread dis-information campaign of the last few decades. Disregard for truth, not to mention science and the law, were seemingly hard-wired into the administration. Take your pick: "WMD", "We don't torture", "Plame's exposers will be held responsible" Hussein 9/11 link etc etc.

But I'm getting tired of all that stuff, so maybe I'll try to put it in the past/not mention it here again.
