Finally. A Reliable Moonbat Tagging System

Via LGF: Anti-Bush Bracelets:-

NEW YORK - After spending 10 days in London with friends who were outspoken about their disdain for President Bush's policies, Berns Rothchild came home wishing she had a way to show the world she didn’t vote for him.

"I sort of felt ashamed, and didn't really want to be associated with being an American," said Rothchild, who lives in New York City and voted for John Kerry.

Her mother had a suggestion: bracelets, inspired by the Lance Armstrong Foundation's popular "LIVESTRONG" bands, that would signal opposition to Bush.

Thousands of miles away, two women in Idaho had the same idea. So did a woman in Kansas. The result? At least three separate bracelet ventures targeting left-leaning citizens who want to wear their political affiliation on their wrists - and at least one competitor bearing the opposite message.

Rothchild, 35, is selling blue bracelets that say "COUNT ME BLUE," while Laura Adams, of Fairway, Kan., offers blue bracelets that say "HOPE." The McKnight family, of Moscow, Idaho, is even more direct; their black bracelets proclaim: "I DID NOT VOTE 4 BUSH."

"It's kind of like saying, 'This is my tribe,'" said Adams, 43, a Kerry supporter, who was inspired by her 14-year-old stepson's yellow Lance Armstrong band.

Huh. Makes it all the easier to round the moonbats up to be rocketed into the Sun. We're still doing that, aren't we?

This amused me - 'After spending 10 days in London with friends who were outspoken about their disdain for President Bush's policies'. Look, I live in England, and the number of people here who can coherently debate Bush's policies can be counted on the fingers of a clumsy worker in the crocodile, chainsaw and fireworks factory. The knowledge of Bush's policies in Europe extends to 'well, he wants to take over Iraq' and a few 'facts' from Fahrenheit 9/11. Ask them about domestic policy and you're met with a blank stare; ask them to explain what they mean by take over Iraq and they start mumbling about oil and torture.

Ask them about John Kerry. 'Uh, he was the other guy, right? Yeah. He should have won. What were his policies? Uh... well, he would have, uh... stopped the war. Yeah. Brought the, uh, troops home.'

They make mental patients wear plastic wristbands, too.
