It finally happened last night. The moment I’ve been dreaming about for so long. I finally saw my first McCain bumper sticker out here. I’ve been searching for one for months, really. The plan was to keep a rough count in my head of the ratio of Obama stickers and signs to McCain ones, to get an idea of the two candidates’ respective support among local voters. Only, I gave up on the effort many weeks ago, after losing count of the number of Obama messages and seeing zero for McCain.
Granted, where I live and where I was looking (primarily in Santa Monica, Venice, and the Marina) is perhaps one of the most liberal areas of the entire United States. But jeez, not even one McCain bumper sticker? Not even two?
I do have to give this driver credit, however, for being so brave. By displaying his McCain bumper sticker in this neck of the woods, he is surely risking defacement, ostracism, and, at the very least, ridicule.
