Oh, crap. Almost forgot to tell you...

I was driving on the "beltline" in Madison, and I came upon a car with a "Clinton 16" bumper sticker. Well, I had actually seen my first "Bernie 2016" bumper sticker a few days previous.

I was a bit annoyed (Being one of those Clinton "haters" ) so I got up closer. To my complete surprise - upon further review - it actually said "Carson 16". Now that blew my mind.

I absolutely had to pull up next to this car just to look at this loon. I pulled up, and it was a 60 year old something white guy. He looked at me and I looked into an abyss which will forever be seared into my brain. He was what we politely refer to as a "low information voter". Bless his heart.

1. You should always make the polite assumption that ...

maybe it's not his car.

You just have to pay her a commission before you are allowed to have her name on your vehicle.

6. When you stare into the abyss

The abyss stares into you.

You might have been infected, can you still do equations using the quadratic function? Just to be safe watch 3 episodes of Cosmos (you can get it on netflex) or both the Daily Show and the Nightly Show with a chaser of the Late Show.

In case of extreme exposure, watch u-tubed saves of Mock the Week for maximum political irreverence.

21. I've seen a Carson sticker

and a Trump sticker in my area.

Only one each, and nothing else.

I don't put stickers on my car, which is visible from my classroom window. I do my best to separate my classroom and students from my personal politics.

If I did, though, it would be this:



or this:

23. It's odd that you'd be annoyed by the idea of a

Democratic bumper sticker, even if it's not your candidate.

Why do you say that?
