like a band-aid

I love you but you need to remove the John Kerry sticker from your car.

We all failed to mobilize more people around John Kerry and the Democrats. Obviously, this is one of the reasons we lost. This nostalgia for a different course of events in 2004, while understandable, is not helpful because it prevents us from seeking clarity about who we are and what we want. And, by the way, what we want is more than "not Bush" or "not the neo-Cons". What in the heck is our vision?

Here are some instructions on how to remove a bumper sticker from your car.

Make your own bumper sticker to inspire change. If it applies to the 2006 elections, great. But it certainly doesn't have to.

Buy sheets of vinyl that you can use in just about any printer. Use Word to make your stickers (make the font big) if you want or go for Adobe Illustrator if you are fancy. Know that colors tend to fade on home made stickers unless you use a sealant. (Just plain old black and white will do fine for a while without sealant though.) Then load up your printer, print them out, cut them out, and put them on your car.
