Yesterday, driving home, I came across a car with the following bumper stickers:
"You’re not Republican. You’re just uninformed."
Faith can move mountains. It can also elect an idiot."
"Patriot for peace."
"Bush is a punk-ass chump."
While all provide some humor, the "patriot" bumper sticker was especially pleasing. I grow weary of Republicans who insist upon conflating the anti-Iraq invasion sentiment and being unpatriotic. Or worse, not supporting our troops and wanting our troops to come home–alive. What could be more patriotic than requiring a war be just before we send our mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters to die? What could be more patriotic than wanting those same people to come home and resume their lives?
