Precinct 333

Oh, Really!

One more sign that some folks don’t get it.
An electric blue wristband seen on the wrists of democratic supporters has been spotted across the nation. The wristband, which is being worn by young and old alike, boldly declares that its wearer is an "Enlightened American" who supports democratic candidates and ideals.
Many Democrats were disappointed by the results of the 2004 Presidential Election. Now, as the Inauguration approaches, some remain in a state of disbelief, while others feel that their voices will remain unheard and their needs unmet by the incoming administration. By wearing the Enlightened American wristband, these individuals band together in common voice declaring that they remain firm in their ideals, especially during this important political time.

You lost the election.

You are not a better person because you voted for the losing candidate.

But maybe we need to market a red bracelet that reads Real American – just to make the point.
