    I agree – Bush must be stopped. That’s why I’m volunteering to be a poll monitor with this organization on election day:

    We need Stop – – Cheney, Rumsfeld and Ashcroft signs too!

    Proud to say I’ve already voted, since I live in a foreign land. But the waiting is killing me…
    Rock on subverting the really scary paradigm!

    Is Utah one of those “Swing States”?

    Mommy Needs a New President indeed!

  • Heather 2

    We ALL need a new president! If I have to listen to my boyfriend and father tell me what a horrible state our country will be in if Kerry gets elected much longer, there is a possibility I might stab one of them in the eye with a rusty fork.

    The best sign I’ve seen all week.

  • Beth

    2004/10/22 at 5:52 am

    I, too, have voted – and the anticipation is killing me. That sign is frigging great. I like your neighborhood!!

  • Kellie

    Wow, I must be the only Republican to visit Dooce’s page. Or maybe I’m part of a silent minority. Regardless, I completely disagree with your politics (and I’m not even Mormon! : ) but I still love your page!! You’ve taken some great pictures and I really enjoy your sense of humor. My husband and I both have spent hours going through the archives reading your posts, and we both thoroughly enjoy what you have to say whether we agree or not. Best wishes!

    Isn’t it so cool to be against Bush?

  • angela marie

    2004/10/22 at 5:57 am

    No, Kellie, I’m here too. Not that I consider myself a Republican…but I do have an opposing viewpoint to those usually posted here. That’s cool. I agree, I love Dooce’s work and I will be so glad when November THIRD comes around.

    Maybe I’ll finally be able to poop. 😉

  • Kevin

    2004/10/22 at 5:58 am

    Kellie isn’t the only republican to visit Dooce. That’s why I favor getting a bunch of stickers that say “DON’T” and pasting them above the “STOP”.

  • Tamara

    2004/10/22 at 5:59 am

    Hee, we have stickered signs like that in Victoria (Canada) too. But they usually say STOP Eating Meat. We apparently have a lot of hippies here. 😀

  • RJ Hampden

    2004/10/22 at 5:59 am

    The guy could’ve at least gotten the stop sign red right. That just looks retarded. Except for the stopping of the bush sentiment. That’s a-right on.
    Kellie, go eat shit, you war-mongering, mindless twit.

  • Kat

    I’m a Filipino, and I really hope Kerry will win. Bush has terrorized this country more than the Abu Sayyaf did.

  • erika

    2004/10/22 at 6:00 am

    Kellie – You’re not the only one. I’m glad you said what you said. You can still enjoy someone’s personality and who they are without agreeing on everything they stand for.

    Well said.

  • Heatheranne

    2004/10/22 at 6:04 am

    I think there is something very wrong with this country if Bush wins. (I would say “If Bush wins *again*” but he didn’t win the first time.)

    Sadly, Ohio still seems to be in favor of Bush. Maybe I need to start putting the stickers up on our stop signs.

  • Tracy

    2004/10/22 at 6:05 am

    Oh man… I wish I had thought of that when they were handing out Bush/Halliburton (ooops, I mean Bush/Cheney) stickers last week…

  • Julie

    2004/10/22 at 6:06 am

    I’m a poll watcher in Arkansas, too. They don’t anticipate any problems, but I’m TOTALLY ready to get all Angie Dickinson and “STOP RIGHT THERE” on their asses if they try pulling anything funny.

    Here in Arkansas, they changed my polling place before the last presidential election, and when I couldn’t get to the new place in time, they tried to keep me from casting my ballot at the polling place where I was. I knew enough to tell them that I was entitled to complete a provisional ballot, and did so. Now, whether or not that got counted, I guess we’ll never know…

  • ginger

    2004/10/22 at 6:08 am

    Dooce, your insight into motherhood and pooping are priceless even if you are a Democrat…just kidding!

    BTW….I have to agree with Kellie and Angela Marie which is what I meant by my previous question.

  • Shannon

    2004/10/22 at 6:10 am

    What you should take a picture of is that awesome stopsign on N Street that has “hammer time” underneath the word “Stop”. Now THAT is funny.

  • Kano

    2004/10/22 at 6:12 am

    Well at least you have the proper punishment for Kerry supporters correct. I actually voted for Kerry before I voted against him. This is Kano and I approve this message.

  • Kelli

    2004/10/22 at 6:17 am

    I’ve seen those stickers on signs here in North Carolina too. Not that it will help Kerry win NC, even if it is our senator running for VP. Sigh.

    Please, get out and VOTE people!!!

  • Anna

    2004/10/22 at 6:19 am

    It’s particularly nice that that sign has a bullet hole in it. I think anyplace where people shoot at signs clearly needs more democratic graffiti.

  • TracyDee

    2004/10/22 at 6:19 am

    Very Clever… I wish I would have thought of it in my neighborhood.

  • kgrp

    2004/10/22 at 6:24 am

    ha! i took a very similar picture in san diego. it was on the stop sign outside the convention center and tons of people were flooding past it everyday. great advertising!

  • cara

    I can’t wait to come back later in the day…when things get really ugly!

    Come on all you Republicans, say what’s REALLY on your mind. She can’t kick you off her page.

  • Brandi

    if bush wins i will cry.

  • Anne

    2004/10/22 at 6:29 am

    I drank the Kool-Aid on being a Republican loooong time ago.

    My husband even makes a living at being one.

    Anyhow, I come here to read dooce’s kick-ass posts about being a mother and wife. And to see if she ever listens to The Pixies.

  • Jessica

    2004/10/22 at 6:32 am

    Love it – I wish I had thought of it. 😉

    Keeping my fingers crossed for Nov 3rd … the idea of “four more years” makes me positively constipated, and I’m normally pretty regular.

  • Heatheranne

    2004/10/22 at 6:37 am

    I saw the best bumper sticker once.

    “11-02-2004 The End of an Error”

  • Rachel

    2004/10/22 at 6:38 am

    Those stickers are here in MN, too. 🙂

  • Drew

    2004/10/22 at 6:40 am

    Funny, those of you supporting defacing public property. Yet, I don’t think some of you would find it funny if somebody were defacing your property.

    My fellow non-Americans might be interested in this site:

    The “non-American” votes from that website will be compiled and released to the U.S. media just before the election.

    Kind of lets you have a say in things.

    I think Drew drank some grumpy juice this morning.

    Dude, what the fuck? There’s a word, “democracy”, you may have heard it. It means that we are all entitled to our own opinions. That means everyone in this country. Even the ones who disagree with you. I know that must be hard for an obvious intellectual such as yourself to accept, but it’s true.

    That being said, love, love, LOVE the sticker. Kudos to the brave Utahan who went to the trouble of making those.

    Too bad Utah is like Kansas and was decided long before this election process started taking place…

    Love the sticker… free speech does apply to stop signs and republicans too.

    Oh yes, need some of those around Baton Rouge!

    I just hope that all of our votes will be counted so we have a fair election this time.

    For people those who are voting for Bush, are you just voting because he is a Republican and you support the Republican party or do you actually support what he is saying? Just curious.

  • Cate

    2004/10/22 at 7:02 am

    Well, I don’t always agree with Dooce’s politics either (voting for Bush, but voting NO on Proposition 3), but that doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE this site and the wicked Dooce humor and the awesome pics and everything else.

    But I also don’t go around telling people whose choice for President I totally disagree with to “eat shit”. Acquiring some manners would be a good move for you, RJ.

    Ha, I live in western Canada and “Bush” was spray painted on stop signs all over the city I live in. I’m not American, but I think G.W is a mofo-chumpdaddy.

    And Kudos to the free speach on here, nice to see despite the one or two people with George’s dick up their ass.

    no offence. 😉

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging.
