So this is what a “compassionate conservative” looks like?

Jen in Concord, Massachusetts is pretty sure she has a Romney supporter to thank for the friendly note left on her car during a recent trip to Target.

Dear Friend, Someone defaced your car w/ an Obama sticker, just thought you should know, hate to see you look like an idiot.

“Fortunately,” she says, “the Obama sticker (which is actually a magnet and very easily removed) was left intact, as was the Darwin fish.”

The sticker

UPDATE: Closer to the election, Samantha was surprised to find a similar (copycat?) note on her car in the President’s hometown of Chicago.

Hi! We noticed that someone vandalized your car and put this Obama bumper sticker on it.  Just making sure you noticed it so you can take it off before you are mistaken for a total dufus. —A good Samaritan

    Good thing this was an anonymous Post-It Note, since I wouldn’t want the concerned Republican to own up to being an idiot.

      If having a bumper sticker is worshiping, then why hasn’t the Motorcycle Safety Foundation answered my prayers?

      Way to not get the joke, Poltergeist. The point is, those stickers always use three-letter codes to represent countries — specifically, “ISO 3166-1 alpha-3″ standard codes. (There is a Wikipedia article with that title, if you want to see the list.)

      The ISO 3166-1 α-3 code for Iraq is: IRQ.

      @a*p: Those stickers are probably mocks of the EU country code stickers that declare what country a car is registered in. The EU ones are two letters such as DE for Germany or CH for Switzerland. I’ve actually never seen the vacation destination stickers with the three letters, but I have seen several of the EU stickers in the states.

      You’re getting defensive over nothing.

      Excuse me? I’ve been on the offensive from the very start. Even if I wasn’t able to provide direct quotes from you that clearly demonstrate that fact, I’d easily recognize it from a lifetime of being offensive. Whine that I attacked you, if you want — that’s fine. (In fact, you already implied it in your first response. Remember this?)

      Oh, excuse me for not recognizing what an ISO 2166-1 alpha-3 code is. I guess I just don’t have the capacity [...]

      So, yeah… me, defensive? What a joke! You’re the one who got defensive from the word “go”, and have continued to defensively argue with even simple statements of fact that I’ve made. Don Quixote called, he wants his windmill back.

    Bumper stickers, by their nature, beg for a reaction. You put a political (or religious, or other) message in a public place, which elicits a reaction from someone who does not agree, and in this case they responded publicly.

    I love political bumper stickers. I love it when they get all sad and faded and the person is embarrassed of ever having them (no particular party in mind here, seriously, it’s funny across the board)–and then they try to scrape them off and get just half of it. Then they have a 4-year-old, faded, sad, half-removed sticker. Pretty much sums up their shame and broken dreams.

      In early 2007 when I put an Obama sticker on my car, I was told by a co-worker that I’d look really stupid with that on my car when he didn’t get the Democratic nomination. This is a woman who STILL puts “Obama is a Muslim” and “I want to see the birth certificate” posts on Facebook. Not that I’m overly political and get mad at people who support the other candidate by any means, but I constantly think “THAT woman called ME stupid?!?”.

    I want a Darwin Fish on my car (when I can afford a car, of course), but here in Kentucky, I assume I’ll quickly be keyed or get flat tires or something fun like that.

      Instead get a Cthulhu fish magnet. They won’t understand what the heck it is!

      And in case you’re wondering, they do sell them. Google it.

      I have the Cthulhu fish, but the one that sticks. Magnet costs extra. There’s also a T-Rex eating a fish. It was a tough choice.

      You could always get a Flying Spaghetti Monster magnet. The pencilnecks might not know what that is, either.

      I have a science fish….it’s the standard fish, but with rocket fins and the word SCIENCE inside. It’s held up pretty well here in Maine, but we are in the bottom two least religious states in the nation. Dunno how it would hold up down South.

    This note, if sincere, was probably left by a “libertarian”, who saw the Darwin fish and thought “All atheists, skeptics, and rational thinkers are conservative like me! Those can’t go together.”

      The fact that it was a big SUV with the Obama sticker might have also blown his/her mind enough to spark the note-writing.

      Also, the thing was parked at Target, a notorious supporter of ultra-conservative politicians and causes.

      That’s the funny thing about libertarianism – since both main parties are authoritarian either you end up an independent/third party supporter or you just pick one and make your compromises. Either will do – it just depends on which issue(s) draw you the most.

    Putting a bumper sticker on your car basically invites people to tellgate you. It’s not their fault, they’re trying to read your sticker.

    The only one I would even consider having on my car says “If your beliefs fit on a bumper sticker, think harder”.

      That’s when they drive close behind you, so they can “tell” what your bumper sticker says.

    I have three bumper stickers – one is a magnet for work and allows me to park in the employee parking without getting towed (but it looks totally unlike a bland ol’ sticker – it’s a cute cupcake!). Another is for my home state of Hawaii. The last one is my friend’s company. If someone wants to think of me a douche for having them, then frankly, I don’t care. It’s my car. That’s why I put stickers pertaining to ME on my car.

    I think it’s funny that people actually support Obama even though he’s clearly been corrupt, misleading, and out of touch with Americans. Romney isn’t much better. He’s a piece of crap just like his opponent. I wish he would just drop out and go join a polygamist sect, but then there would be no opponent to the worthless money spending machine and the babbling retard we’ve got in office now. This country is in so much trouble…

    For 16 years, I drove a red pickup with pro-gay stickers on the back. (I’m straight, but was on the board of directors for PFLAG and have worked for a long time for human and civil rights for GLBT folks.)

    It had the stickers because we used it in the Twin Cities’ HUGE gay pride parade, to give a ride to disabled people in our group.

    I nearly got run off the road by some hicks, and a cop pulled me over just b/c of the gay stickers on the back.

    When my truck finally died and my mom wanted a new vehicle, she gave me her newish car (thanks, mom!). A beige four-door Camry.

    I love love love being anonymous on the road.

    Best bumper sticker ever was those stupid little stick figures of dad, mom, their 2.3 kids, dog, cat, goldfish, etc. It was the international symbol for “no” (red circle with a slash through it) that made us follow the man off the interstate so we could get a picture of it.

    The Darwin magnet doesn’t make you look like an idiot. The Obama magnet, on the other hand, makes you look like a complete ignoramus or, at best, another leech on society. It’s hard to imagine anyone still supporting that douchebag.

    Does anybody else get a cheesed as I do over the iconic “Why Be Normal?” stickers that are attached in the “normal” (in the engineering sense) orientation? I’m willing to concede the orthodoxy of attaching it so that the adhesive is in full contact with the mounting surface, as practicality dictates, but I can’t believe that *everyone* who places one so that the text can be read conventionally does so out of a sense of irony. I’ve only ever seen one that was placed differently (it was rotated just short of 90 degrees clockwise). My first thought was “finally, someone gets it!”
