This bumper stick disproves that bumper sticker “I think, therefore I’m liberal.”  Because the person who drives this car proves just the opposite.

This is the latest in a serieson the use of the race card for political gain:

#OccupyWallStreet has been the subject of numerous posts here, including the NY Times’ poster child who wasn’t, the influence of big labor, and the now-obligatory video of the anti-Jew guy.

He who defines the terms, controls the debate.

There is no better example than “social justice,” a term which as defined by academia and the media means left-wing policies, setting conservatives back on their heels.  Who could be against “social justice”?

Thanks to reader Luke in Oakton, Virginia, who writes:

Professor Jacobson – I love your bumper sticker feature.  Here’s a bumper sticker I see everyday, well, because it’s on my car.  I can’t tell you how many nice comments I collect from total strangers.  I thought you might like to share it with your audience.

Keep up the great work and the fine sense of humor.

Been in the car all morning. What did I miss?

Herman Cain black enough for Lawrence O’Donnell yet?

Kathleen Parker and David Frum mourning the loss of their sole source of attention?

There have been over 200 bumper sticker posts since the first post on June 24, 2010.

This is possibly the most offensive interview sequence I’ve ever seen.

Lawrence O’Donnell lectures and snidely criticized Herman Cain, who was a minor when Rosa Parks refused to sit in the back of the bus in 1955 and in high school for the desegregation fights in the late 1950s and early 1960s, for not...

I’ll admit I don’t understand all the intricacies of the U.S. Senate Rules, but moments ago Harry Reid pulled the “nuclear option” in order to prevent Republicans from forcing Senate Democrats to vote on Obama’s jobs bill.

As reported by The Hill (h/t Marathon Pundit):

The anti-1% street agitation is the fulfillment of a process we have seen unfold since Obama’s 2008 campaign, a process by which a group of various definitions of wealth is isolated and targeted for demagoguery.

It was the Top 5%, then the Top 2%, now it’s down to the Top 1%.

The smear is long gone from the front pages, but will live on forever in Rick Perry’s campaign:

It’s the age-old question.

And it is not a theoretical question, as you know from recent experience here, because if I followed that line of thinking religiously, multiple remaining candidates would be crossed off my list.

For example, David Frum is supporting Mitt Romney.

But Frum has spent the past three years drumming up...
