How To Support Your Candidate - Whomever It May Be

By maxwell edison ·

Okay, partisan snipes aside, I suggest we ALL show support for our candidate of choice in a civil manner. And to show my sincerity behind this suggestion, I've come up with the following proposal:

If you support George W. Bush, drive your automobile with your headlights ON during the day.

If you support John Kerry, however, drive your automobile with the headlights OFF at night.

There ya' go.

On Volvos and politics

by maxwell edison In reply to Swinging voter perhaps ?

Julian, My very unscientific and untested personal observation would suggest to me that all Volvo drivers are liberals (your labor party, I believe). I've never seen a Volvo driver who was not a liberal; and I've never seen a Volvo driver who was a conservative.

However, I did hear recently that our very own Secretary of State, the most honorable Colin Powell, is a collector of vintage Volvos. (Well, he is rather liberal for a Republican.)

Opposite hemispheres perhaps?

by jardinier In reply to On Volvos and politics

Well Max, I live in the third safest "Liberal" (conservative) seat in Australia. The seat is Bradfield and the area is the upper North Shore of Sydney.

This area has by far the highest concentration of Volvos in Sydney.

This places me in a good position to observe the driving habits of Volvo owners. The verdict? Except for the fact that they drive the best car in the world, they are indistinguishable from other drivers.

For some more gentle pre-election fun, give a try to some of these quizzes.

Some have a bit of a bias. Others are just interesting.

Of the quizzes I took, the best results for President Bush was only 16% agreement.

The biggest surprise for me was that I rated 87% agreement with the US Catholic Bishops. I would have expected less than a 50% agreement rate.
