It’s Time to Take Off the Bumper Stickers
In a few minutes, I'm going out to rip the peeling bumper sticker off my battered Ford fender. It's time. The contest is over.
What's important now is to unpolarize, compromise, re-integrate, harmonize, and chill.
Not that it's so easy. It continues to amaze me that the Clintons can argue so passionately for their former opponent Barack Obama. It's remarkably large-hearted, principled and civilized, as was Romney's speech last night.
I couldn't do it. Two candidates were up for election yesterday for different offices, each of whom ran against my brother in earlier years(he wasn't running this time.) I was able to bring myself to vote for one of them; in the other instance, I simply left the bubble blank, though the guy's philosophy came closer to mine than did his opponent's.
But I can pull off the bumper sticker. That far I can go to make peace.
