I drive a Volvo, not a Prius. I like Cappucino (double, skim), not lattes. I like topsiders, not
birkenstocks.

Will you Obamatons tell me, can I still join the cult?

1. I drive a Chevy, I drink Maxwell House. And I don't know what birkenstock means
And I don't want any part of the cult.

2. blue oyster, perhaps?
I still don't know, or care, what the eff is a birkenstien. and I drink tea. and vodka. although in differing quantities.

however, if you wish to join a team that does not kick below the belt, lie, cheat, steal, dissemble, and spin like a top, I suggest you avoid Camp Hill.

3. Of course.
The only prerequisite is willingness to sacrifice an occasional goat for The Great Obama.

Hard to get those slippery Eastern European suckers to stand still for it, though! ;)

5. I have a beat-up Pontiac and I really like soda.
Oh yeah, I only wear big sneakers, 'cause they're warm.

:crazy:

I'm beginning to think Obama supporters don't want anybody on their little planet.

7. I drive a 12-year-old Saturn, drink black coffee, and wear nondescript loafers.
I don't care for cults but I do prefer candidates who don't claim the opposing party's candidate is better than a rival candidate in the same party.

8. You know where all this started, right?
With Howard Dean and the add that called Vermonters volvo driving birkenstock wearing etc hippie liberals. They should have come to the Kingdom where people drive rusted out trucks and beat up Suburus, there isn't a latte in sight, and birkenstocks aren't much good in 4 ft of snow. Give me my Sorels any old day.

11. I make less than 50K a year, drive a chevy Tracker (four cylinder with excellent milage), don't.....
drink coffee, I'm a white male Gen-Xer with a niece/goddaughter from Haiti who has a sister from China who I spend several hours a week at my house, and I support Obama.

Let's face it, as much as they want us too, none of us fit in a perfect mole.

13. I have to admit I drive a Prius (I care about the earth & hate oil profiteering), drink lattes
(need the calcium) and welcome all those wish to join us-but I have to take issue with the spin of "Obamatons". The folks I meet are free thinkers who are willing to research deeply who will be the best candidate of real change.

16. Some of you people don't sound like Obamatons to me!
I mean, if you drive a pick up, you must be a crossover voter, but then what if you drive a crossover.

I am really confused, can someone please label me? I need to be stereotyped.

18. Sorry to tell you....
you drive a Volvo and drink cappucino.....you're a member of the cult -- the in denial section is over there ----------->. The topsiders & Volvo also qualify you for the RNC cult, but don't go over there -- I've heard people disappear and their brains are sucked out of their heads. Scary place.

I never even heard of birkenstocks until a few years ago. And I make under $50,000.

Am I supposed to support Hillary? Never!

27. I drive a 20 year old Corolla or sometimes our "new car" a 98 Camry
I wear clarks (mules) if they're on sale, I drink most any coffee as long as it's caffeinated; in a regular mug, with powdered creamer.

I support Senator Obama.

You can vote for him too. :bounce:

32. LOL!!!!

I *just* changed my sig line today to something about that.

We drive a Town and Country (read: Minivan), I drink flavored black coffee with just a little sweet in it, I wear slip on deck shoes and actually had to GOOGLE Birkenstocks. (I'm so fashionably UNconscious I had no idea what they were)


(cue cheezy music here)

Of course there ARE times when I'm a total noodlehead and absolutely can not stand to be without my 20oz Quad Shot Pina Colada (mixed not premeasured) Breve with whipped cream on top and cocoa sprinkles!

40. I have an old green bicycle. I like straight espresso because its cheap and I can add a little bit
of milk at the condiment counter. I've been wearing a lot of ballet style flats and a pair of vintage boots with stacked wooden heels. And I've had my favorite oxfords resoled three times. They belonged to my late great aunt. I don't know where I fit into this cult.
