The bumpers of Berkeley have descended into chaos in the aftermath of November 4th.


Well, that didn’t take long. First the owner was pro-Obama (on the left side of the bumper), but within days after helping to get his candidate elected, the owner declares Obama to be “not my president” (the sticker on the right). Took Obama less than a week to assume the role of oppressor!

(Of course there are those among you who will argue that this juxtaposition of messages was purely unintentional, but I beg to differ.)


Just blocks away, this bumper exhibited even more head-scratching multi-layered opinions about Obama. First there was a sticker criticizing Obama and McCain; then, on the right, now partly covered up, a purely anti-Obama sticker; then, strangely, someone just took the picture of Obama from that second sticker and attached it on the far left side of the bumper; and then someone put a pro-Obama sticker on top of the anti-Obama sticker on the right; and in the final stroke of incomprehensibility, someone then peeled off just part of the pro-Obama sticker to reveal part of the anti-Obama sticker underneath.

Talk about conflicted!

    That second one is a real treat, that’s for sure. Don’t try figuring it out while you’re drunk.

    CAUTION: Removing the bumper sticker may cause the bumper fall apart.

    I’m very confused. I can only assume on the top car, the sticker on the right was intended for Bush, as suggested by the wear and tear on the edges. The bottom car…maybe a conservative whose car was vandalized?

    Um…aren’t the license plates usually blurred?

    OK, I’ve now blurred the license plate.

    As for the first photo –yes, quite obviously, to an experienced viewer, the car owner put the “Not My President” sticker on in 2004 in reference to Bush, and the “Obama/Biden” sticker in 2008. But to the casual observer, or anyone who hasn’t followed the history of bumper stickers over the last 8 years, it looks like both stickers were put on at the same time and were connected to each other. It’s just that this careless liberal got his anti-Bush 2004 sticker and his pro-Obama 2008 sticker mixed up on the same bumper, thereby unintentionally voicing the feelings of many folks on the opposite end of the political spectrum. It struck me as rather amusing!

    I predict the anti-Obama backlash, from some of the same people who voted for him, will happen sooner than we expect.
