Saw a few "Impeach Obama!" signs outside Bellevue Square Mall today.

I didn't stop to find out what their damage is. I refuse to spend my higher reasoning faculties on the brainless blatherings of mental defectives...

On the drive up here, I was stuck behind a pickup truck with this sign in the rear window of the cab:

"S.O.B! Sick Of Obama! - and then some smaller, unreadable bullshit, likely stuff like "Get to work; millions on welfare depend on you."

I wish these fuckbrains would move to Idaho or someplace, and quit polluting my beloved Evergreen State...

1. I saw similar teabag idiots the other day hanging out on a bridge over an interstate.

I made a one fingered editorial comment in their general direction - I don't think they saw it though because it was inside the car and I was almost under the bridge by the time I saw them. I guess the police eventually made them move because they were a distraction hazard.

2. Is S.O.B. supposed to stand for Sick of Obama?

Because . . . it doesn't.

3. This one is popular where I live

One Big Ass Mistake America

Often seen on the back of sky-jacked four wheel drive pick-up trucks. But I wouldn't expect less here in the Hoosier state.

But I think living here has made me a better liberal. I live in a smallish town of 38,000 people and my travels as a truck driver in the state take me to many smaller towns. I feel like I truly understand white, social conservatism. A lot of the people I run across are poor or working class. A big source of contention with them is minorities getting what they perceive as preferential treatment. Here they are struggling just as badly as the poor minorities and they don't see the same kind of help being offered to them.

1. They don't understand institutional racism.

2. They don't understand that if they'd elect more liberal representatives to the state legislature and governor's office they would likely see a lot more in the way of a helping hand from their elected officials.

4. Bet they can't stand it that Obama carried Bellevue and the rest of King County.

They won't find much sympathy here.

7. There's a lot of wealth in Bellevue, but

also a great deal of ethnic diversity. That helps, no doubt...

8. I was just reading about school districts in the area and noticed that Bellevue

now has less than 50% white.

So yes -- it's not the same city it used to be.

Such beautiful diversity and interesting differences...

11. So sorry to hear about this

and at Bellevue Mall, for heaven's sake.

I grew up in Bellevue -- before there was a mall and before I-405 went through town. The "diversity" back then consisted of a large Jewish community and very few people of color.

One of my favorite high school memories was when the school sponsored a debate between Walter Hundley of CORE and a member of the Seattle Real Estate board about open housing (the ability to purchase a home one could afford in an area where one would like to live without race discrimination.) Here's a HistoryLink about him: It was during the late sixties that he became a highly visible figure in the civil rights movement in Seattle. As chair of the Congress for Racial Equality and member of the Central Area Civil Rights Committee, he was a leader in organizing the boycott against Seattle Public Schools and in promoting picketing and marches through downtown for equal employment and housing opportunities. It was highly entertaining to hear the realtor try to justify why they didn't show houses to African-Americans in "white" neighborhoods. My mother sold real estate at the time and I worked weekends in a real estate office.

The comforting thought is that the racist half-brains were out-voted in the last election.

13. I shit you not - the other day I saw a bumper sticker that said:

"Don't blame me, I voted for Romney!!!"

Like the least interesting man in the world would be better.
