As I was sitting in my vehicle in front of Wells Fargo bank last Wednesday, a woman was attempting to get into the car next to me. (I was parked too close for her to get in.) As I was moving my truck, a man in his mid-30s approached the woman. He was waving his arms and screaming at her about the bumper stickers on her car. The stickers were not complimentary to President Bush. The man was ranting at the top of his voice, "When that mushroom cloud goes off, I hope you are right in the middle of it! You liberals are ruining this country ... you're against the Patriot Act, blah, blah, blah ...."
The poor woman was trying to explain that it wasn't even her car, but he would have none of it. He just kept up with his apoplectic rage. It was quite a sight! I don't think he will win many people over to his side with his message and style of delivery. It made me kinda proud to be a Democrat.
Well, Peace on Earth to Men of Good Will, and Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwaanza, Happy Hanukkah and Allah Akhbar to all.
