who are you talking to?
June 26, 2012
Driving home from work this week (from Thanksgiving Point to Suncrest, along the Timpanogos Highway), I spied a local version of a minivan (a big black Escalade) with a Mitt Romney bumper sticker.
I just don’t know where to start.
You’re driving along the Timp Highway toward Alpine, Utah. In a giant Escalade.
If there’s a redder town in a redder state in the country, I don’t know about it.
So, just who are you talking to with that bumper sticker? Your neighbors? A potential employer? Your father in law?
In 2004 over 70% of Utah citizens voted for Bush, with zero counties going Blue. None.
And Mitt Romney is Mormon. Which means in 2012, about 90% of Utah citizens will vote for Romney.
Which means that putting a Mitt Romney bumper sticker on your car in Alpine, UT, is kind of like putting on a bumper sticker that says “I breathe” or “this giant Escalade is black.”
Seriously. Who is the audience for that sticker?
