More on the Democrats' efforts to alienate the voting majority:
A political parody of the ichthys, the Christian fish symbol, has put Washington state Democrats in some hot water and cast a spotlight upon a Mount Vernon activist who wants marijuana legalized.Not that I'm opposed to legalizing marijuana, but those who think (and say) that, "we wouldn’t be such a warring people if we used more cannabis and used less alcohol," are obviously (and perhaps a little too) deep into the ditch weed.
Allison Bigelow did not create the facetious fish, but her company, Reefer Magnets, owns the copyright and sells it on the Internet...
This latest ichthys parody was created by a Seattle activist who wanted not to be named. He said he feared for the safety of his cats if the controversy grew out of control.
He said the magnets were meant to spur a discussion about hypocrisy in politics, and he hopes the recent media attention helps.
Either way, it doesn't help the Washington Democrats, who sold the stickers on their site and then when it hit the press, hit reverse and got rid of them. What kind of a business recalls its products as soon as millions of potential customers discover it?
Look, if that's your message, then have the stones to stick with it, but realize that selling stickers designed to offend the majority of voters in this country might not be the fastest way to political power.
If it's not their message, then it just remains another indication that as bad as the GOP is, the Dems are not exactly offering up a competent alternative here...
