Giving California Crazy a run for its money.
This Prius was parked in Edgewater, the hottest, newest and trendiest section of Miami, Florida, where condominiums are now being snapped up for $400-$600/square foot. (A bargain, still, compared to South Beach and some sections of downtown Miami where preconstruction can command $900/square foot).
There were so many Liberal cliches plastering its rear-end (including some plugs for the State of Vermont, the University of Vermont and Socialist Bernie Sanders), but I thought it was both curious and telling that no room was made for the Wonders of Obamacare.
A comment to our bumper sticker post, Guide to California Crazy, inspired a response from reader JoAnne:
Just wanted to add this picture to prove Alex’s hypothesis! And just another reason we left California! This pic is from 2006 but she changed the signs to go with the current campaign.
It was taken in Concord, CA in May of 2006. Suck, huh?!!
Thanks for all your work.
Here’s part of the comment to which she was responding:

I have pointed out before this confirmation of my bumper sticker guide to political personalities.
…. My hypothesis is that it reveals a certain basic strain in leftist thinking and motivation–that the primary goal of political opinions is moral display, showing oneself and others that one is a good, decent person whose sensibilities are attuned to a higher plane. To many leftists, politics is primary a means of moral exhibitionism and moral confirmation.
If anyone has arguments with this hypothesis, please offer them.
From LukeHandCool, a handy Guide to California Crazy, with commentary:
Came across this motorized billboard on a corner of Wilshire Boulevard on L.A.’s Westside after dropping the son off at school. He’s becoming quite a politically incorrect joker and I’d just given him a little lecture to be cautious around his teachers; that it’s much safer to give the teacher a rotten, non-organic, non-fair-trade apple than to challenge his/her political sensibilities.
Anyway, behold the peak of evolution of the car as pop-art-political statement.
I call it, “Driving the Narrative: When Life Imitates Art Imitating Life: A Conversation with Still Life.”
1) “Marriage = heart + heart.” My wife has disproved this theory.
2) “Democracies Die Behind Closed Doors.” Whereupon they go to The Afterlife on the backs of cars.
3) “Earth Without Art is Just ‘Eh.’” Spoken like a true cavewoman.
4) “Imagine What We Could Accomplish if We Weren’t so Afraid of Each Other.” You first.
5) “The Most Powerful Mind-Altering Substance is the Truth.” Yeah, but I suspect the buzz it gives you won’t feel too good, lady.
6) “The Time to do the Right Thing is Always Now.” Tony Robbins just gagged.
7) “Got Aloha?” Yeah. You?
8) “I’m Already Against the Next War.” Oh! You’re a Prepper!
McDonald’s parking lot, Port Chester, NY.
Vehicle left before I could get a distinctive political pic, but driver rolls with the left!
Rolls with the left? More like rolls joints:
Snagged this right outside the local hippie supermarket… heh heh.
Forgot to mention that it was taken right outside the local hippie supermarket in Ojai, CA.
Which is the perfect excuse to run this:
See what I did there?
From J spotted in Charlottesville, VA.
Looks like someone didn’t get the memo, that dissent is no longer patriotic, and that anyone who speaks out against Dear Leader must be dealt with in ways that He would never consider dealing with tyrannical foreign leaders (cough, cough, Crimea, anyone)?
Spotted this at a red light while vacationing in Venice, Florida.
I thought it was a good one and certainly true.
Keep up the good work!
This sicker is on a minivan outside of Houston.
The H sticker next to it is about Henry Rifles.
He got it.
On a car in Portland Oregon no less.
The times be returning, they be returning.
My husband and I spotted this pickup truck in Kingsland, Camden County, Georgia today.
Thought you’d enjoy the bumper stickers. I don’t know who he is, but he’s a man after my own heart!
We both enjoy your blog tremendously. Thank you for all you do.
