Confusing Bumper Sticker

So, my wife has been rocking a “Cheney/Voldemort ’08” bumber sticker for a while now, and it’s recieved mixed reviews. She thought everyone would get it, but clearly not that many people actually know who Voldemort is. I’m not sure how this is possible.

A lot of people sheepishly ask her who Voldemort is, instead of asking what is really on their mind – “Do you actually support Dick Cheney?” The fact that people would need to ask this kind of scares me. Clearly he isn’t running, and who doesn’t know this?

But the craziest comment came a couple weeks ago. Jen was at a stop sign waiting to exit out of our neighborhood. A huge pickup pulls up to the left, blocking her view. She’s not shy, so she sarcastically says, “Thanks man!” The driver leans over, and yells, “Shutup you stupid republican bitch!” Wow, just wow.
