Celebrate Obama and Prepare Just in Case
I have to admit that I’m feeling confident about the chances Barack Obama has for a strong victory on Election Day this week. That’s why I’ve prepared the following bumper sticker, with an ironic twist on George W. Bush’s biggest blunder ever: Obama ’08 – Mission Accomplished. I’ll be adding this bumper sticker to my collection of Obama victory celebration gear, with phrases like Thank me. I voted for Obama.
However, along with my optimism, I’ve got a strain of learned wariness. Behaviorists would say that I’ve been conditioned by the 2000 and 2004 elections to expect the worst. For that reason, I’ve also prepared a special collection of political campaign gear just in case John McCain… I hate to even say it… wins. I call it the Emergency McCain Response Kit – slap forehead in case of McCain victory.
If you’ve got any ideas or slogans you’d like to see in these collections, please leave a comment with your thoughts.
