Sadly, some progressives seem to prefer slinging mud and insults at those with different points of view over having a rational discussion of ideas. I’ve blogged here many times about the vitriol and vulgarity that adorns way too many vehicles that drive my route between Orange and Wake counties.

Today’s installment of progressive thinking came to me courtesy of a very new-looking car that I noticed because it was so pretty. As I got closer, I saw the car was adorned with two bumper stickers.

On the right end of the bumper was a white dove with clouds in the background — a universal symbol for peace and tranquility.

On the left end of the bumper was a hateful anti-Republican vulgarity that I won’t repeat.

And no, the driver isn’t likely to ever see the irony.
