What's the deal with bumper stickers?
As I was driving home from work today I ended up behind someone who had a pair of Obama/Biden bumper stickers on his car. That got me thinking. What is the purpose of political bumper stickers?Are they trying to convince others to vote for that candidate? I mean, do people really see political bumper stickers on the back of a car and think to themselves, "You know, that guy supports Obama. I think I will too!"? Or is it purely to show your support for a candidate? Because if it is, I have to think there are better ways to do it. A bumper sticker is a pretty permanent show of support. Four years later, you just look silly. But to each his own I guess.
