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.

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.

    Still, if he does get in I’d expect to see merchendise focusing on how politicians are meant to be there for the people, not the other way around, right?

    “We elected you, so now…” do this, that, the other? Preferably points that most everyone, Liberal or not, would agree on. Any reforms to the education system or such are a good example (I doubt even the most hardcore Republican wants to deprive children of education).

    It’s a bit harsh to give him orders, but the elections aren’t purely a team event, it’s choosing a representative for a whole country of diverse people.

    (Any much-needed reforms to the education system, that is. Obviously it’s possible to come up with negative reforms.)

    “Congratulations Obama, now fix it.”

    Or just “Fix it, Obama”

    I think if McCain wins it we’d be in for a:
    “McCain-al Im-Palin” if you get my meaning…
