As I was running errands this past week, I ended up behind a truck sporting a special kind of bumper sticker. At first, I thought it was a joke. I mean, “Honkies For Herman?” Seriously?!
Of course, I googled the phrase when I got back to the office expecting full well to find some sort of parody website. Lo and behold – they’re real and apparently semi-legitimate. Here’s how they describe themselves:
“When we watch Mr. Cain and when we listen to Mr. Cain, we see Ronald Reagan and we hear Ronald Reagan…
Since racism, race bating, and classism are staples of leftist politics, we have decided to proudly be Honkies For Herman as a way of taking the issue away from the left…
We will not be producing any ‘Honkies For Herman’ t-shirts, bumper stickers, or buttons…”
What was that last part? No t-shirts or bumper stickers?
I am all for political diversity. When you come from a town that has be-gifted the political scene with both Newt Gingrich AND Herman Cain though, you start to wonder if there’s something in the water that adds that extra bit of crazy.
Honkies For Herman, congratulations – you’ve just a coveted WTHATL?! award for the month.
