Have you ever suddenly been taken aback by something that’s been around for a while and just never really paid it that much attention before?
Yesterday I was on my way to the gym and must have seen about 5 or 6 “Kerry-Edwards” bumper-stickers. That may not seem like many, but when you consider that it was 443 days ago that Bush trounced Kerry (442 days since Kerry figured it out) with the largest number of popular votes ever by a presidential candidate in American history, you start to wonder: Aren’t these the people who made popular the phrase “Move On“?
Kind of makes me want to do an informal survey: How long did it take you to remove your Bush/Quayle ’92 and/or Dole/Kemp ’96 stickers after they lost?
I’ll go first: It was the next day. For that matter, I removed the Bush/Cheney stickers the next day in ’00 (in spite of the so-called “Constitutional Crisis!“) and again in ’04. You see, in a democracy, you have an election, then you have a president. Do Kerry supporters understand that?
