Can't we do something that says, "McCain: yesterday in America" I mean that's a crappy slogan, but I think it would be cool to take Reagan's master marketing campaign, turn it on its head and use it against a Republican.

More like: "McCain: Tomorrow, the next day, the day after that ... in Iraq"

Not as catchy of course, so actually you could just go with "McCain: One, two, a thousand Vietnams" and get out the geezer vote.

I often marvel at the bitter-enders who still have Bush-Cheney bumper stickers on their vehicles, indicating that they are simultaneously committed enough to remain supportive of GWB, brazen enough not to feel shame about doing so, and poor enough to be driving a four-year-old vehicle*.

*FTR I'm not in favor of replacing vehicles at three year intervals (when I drive, it's an 8 y.o. car), but I think of the core W. demographic as being frequent car replacers.

And then I'd sit and think of more.

No, we're directing this at the masses. Vitter will be blamed for the New Orleans hurricane. Craig will be blamed for AIDS. God will be invoked.

I'm getting a new car this summer and thus have decided to go magnets-only from here on out. My Obama magnet (and one for Rah's slick new ride) are in transit to us, as is my new HRC equals-sign magnet.

The CTHULHU fish is already a magnet, as I bought it at a time when I knew any bumper sticker would outlive any car likely to find itself in my driveway.
