Viv got home late last night. Among her California booty was a bumpersticker that her dad gave her.

As some readers will already know, Viv’s parents came to the U.S. from Cuba after the revolution. While my father-in-law is far from being the political caricature of Cuban emigres seen as players in both Florida and national politics, it’s safe to describe him as a reliable Republican voter, comfortable in the Reagan-Nixon zone of Orange County, California.

The bumpersticker he gave Viv endorses one John Kerry, lately of Massachusetts. I’m beginning to suspect that the current President may – just maybe – be in trouble, barring Osama, Osama, or bimbo eruption.
