Wondering if the war on terror is permanent?

Alabama has a license plate. Here it is, unedited:

GWT


When I saw this on the car in front of me this morning, I thought, oh man. This is just like the Choose Life anti-abortion propaganda license plate issued by the state. Alabama claims this license plate is about supporting adoption, but um, the Center for Reproductive Rights thinks differently.

But anyway. Turns out the endless war on terrah license plates are only for veterans of the endless war on terrah, as if we aren't all veterans of this lie-fest. I'm just sorry I was on the interstate, and couldn't walk up to the owner of this license plate, with all due respect to our troops, and tell him his license plate was totally left-wing bloggable.

I had time to think on my school carpool commute and you know, photoshopping is fun. This with a tip of something tasty to those nasty folks at T-Shirt Hell:

  7. That Tee-Shirt Hell site is great. I love the Uncle Sam Shocker one (I Want Two in the Pink and one in the Stink), and I think you really really need to get the If I had Balls, They'd Be Bigger than Yours shirt.

    Did you see the tee-shirt on my blog yet?

  16. I can't keep up with all of the license plates we have. I've tried. I wonder if the state would just let us design our own?

  17. Last week I saw a "Global War On Terror Veteran" Minnesota plate, as well, on the streets of our True Blue capital city, St. Paul. I could appreciate someone wanting a plate to signify his/her service in Iraq or Afghanistan, but what sort of person comes back from one of those fronts and still identifies with that empty political marketing angle?
