  •  I used to have bumper stickers on my car (2+ / 0-)

    The one  I liked best showed a photo of a beagle (I am a total beagle person), with the legend above saying: "Mission Accomplished" from DogsAgainstRomney.com.

    I took all the bumpers stickers off my car because on a recent Saturday morning I dressed up like a Republican and went to a "morning coffee hour" at the office of my local legislator, who is, of course, Rethuglican. He was quite affable but of course spewed the party line.  

    Reported later to the people who asked me to go there. I don't think I got much info for them, but they said they appreciated it. I was so overdressed (the others in the room, a married couple plus the lege and his office manager were wearing bermudas and knit shirts) that I pretended I was going to a ladies' luncheon an hour's drive away. I took my leave as soon as I decently could.

    I like working at headquarters. It gets more and more interesting as the election looms. Our candidate won her primary, so now we're hoping to get out the vote that will put her in the state house.  There are singularly few women in Virginia's house and senate.  About time we did something about that.

      Ironically, a sister works at a (needless to say) very conservative newspaper east of here, and she recently had to take the bumper stickers off her car at her employer's request.

      Ironically, none of them were partisan-political--and one championed the First Amendment!!!
