    Is that Derbyshire’s car?

    He might not be a birther. He might just think secret-Muslim-Socialist Brown People aren’t American.

    Your headline implies this is something rare. I see this type of bumper sticker so often that I don’t even pay attention any more. I still wonder and despair at the self-deception, but I’m certainly not surprised by it.

    Oh, and BTW, I support the bumper sticker on the right-hand side (what I can see of it, at least), but I don’t think that was your point.

    Don’t know what year the Impala is but cars.com states that the 2009 Impala contains 15% foreign sourced parts and was assembeled in Canada.

    The only thing missing was the family dog tied to the roof.

  6. ernieyeball says:

    @al-Ameda: How do you know the dog is not in the trunk?

    I thought they were rare…I’d never seen or talked to one.
    But then tonight I saw a guy on the Barrett-Jackson auction make a comment about the President not being American.
    Stunning. Just stunning.

  8. Franklin says:

    Huh, I just assumed the left sticker was talking about McCain being born in Panama. And then after voting for Obama, he changed his mind and added the right sticker.

  9. @ernieyeball: It’s a 2000-2005 model going by the taillights (my brother used to have one).

    I must admit I never pegged Impala as a Birther magnet. Can you put a gun rack on an Impala?

    There are a couple of cars in my neighborhood that cut off the top half of their McCain-Palin bumper stickers. The first one I saw, I thought it must have just been a funny coincidence. But with the second one, I guess it must be intentional. Anyway, I’d feel better if they meant it as a cautionary tale, but I am pretty sure that was not the point.
