Must. Have. One.

Here is an example of how we can see something and instantly desire it!

There’s not a moment to lose, for all love!

Alas, this person seems to be confused.  I don’t mean the choice of color of car, which I don’t think I would drive unless it surrounded a 1969 Camaro ZL-1.  I mean the choice of a Hillary sticker on the window.  It’s small, but it is… there, like a … wart.

Of course I would vote for the corpse of Millard Fillmore if someone ran it against Hillary.

    I won’t lie: there were two other stickers for HRC… oh well. The Aubrey sticker is most important, and we’ll see if we can find it…

  2. Matt R says:

    Aha! Reverendus Dominus, I have an answer. “There is a Facebook group called the Aubrey-Maturin Appreciation Society. One of the members is a graphic artist and designed the stickers. He only makes them available to other group members, so your friend would need to join up. It’s a private group, but easy to join.” It is public & easy to find on Facebook. I will definitely get one.

    “I would vote for the corpse of Millard Fillmore if someone ran it against Hillary.” ROTFL!!!!

    It seems to prove that liberals do have a sense of humor after all.

    [I see two possibilities. Either a) a conservative put that on the car and snapped the pic or, b) the liberal thought those were real candidates, didn’t recognize the flag, and thought those were New Age, feminist, transgender names like… like, you know, like … Hunter or Maxwell…]

    Please excuse my ignorance –
    Who is Aubrey ?

  6. WesleyD says:

    Graytown:

    Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin are the fictional heroes in the novels of Patrick O’Brian. The movie Master and Commander was based on these novels.

    Not to be confused with Mike Maturen, the presidential candidate of the American Solidarity Party, a tiny American pro-life party!

    Post catholic, I know mostly liberals of good humor, and putting up with me is the biggest test of all.

  8. JARay says:

    I am not in favour of putting any stickers on the back of my car. I removed those which were on my car when I bought it.

    [You deserve this. Sheesh.]

  9. acardnal says:

    That sticker would be a lot more meaningful on the transom of a sloop or a frigate.

  10. Venerator Sti Lot says:

    Nice! (And it will probably be of good service until the next UK general election, in an updated version.)

    I liked the “Baggins/Gamgee” ones I saw, the other day, too – especially, “Because the United Shires could use a good scouring”.

  11. amsjj1002 says:

    I almost think it should be Maturin & Aubrey b/c the captain doesn’t have the best of luck on land. If only the doctor wasn’t so disagreeable-looking…

  12. Sword40 says:

    I try not to put on political stickers. As a former Marine Sgt. whose wife was a Marine Sgt. and whose oldest daughter was a Marine Cpl. And whose second oldest son is Marine CWO4 about to retire on 26 years service, our car is cover front to back with “oo0h rah” stickers/emblems etc. Semper Fi, Father Z.

    Hillary Clinton as “Rosie the Riveter”?!?

    Yeah right.

    Pardon me while I channel my inner Dana Carvey as Garth from “Wayne’s World.”

    “I think I’m gonna hurl!”

    Hillary: “Party on Wayne!” – Garth: “Party on Hillary!… Oh, watch those stairs! Whoa. That hadda hurt.”

    MSM

  14. Kerry says:

    Not bumper stickers but, Sword 40, once at a school board flavor meeting a former Marine stood up, and what he said explained the other Marines there in dress blues, “I fought on Guadalcanal when I was 17”.
    It was as if someone stood up and said he’d fought at Gettysburg. God bless the Marines.

  15. david s says:

    Just finished reading “HMS Surprise, ” set during the Napoleonic wars. It included the following, spoken by one of the officers, Pullings, to a young midshipman–with reference to Capt Aubrey:

    “You don’t want to be upsetting the old ways. Oh dear me me, no. God’s my life, if the Captain was to hear you carrying on in that reckless Jacobin, democratical line, why I dare say he would turn you adrift on a three-inch plank, with both your ears nailed down to it, to learn you bashfulness, the way he served three young gentlemen in the Med. No, no: you don’t want to go arsing around with the old ways: The French did so, and look at the scrape it has gotten them into.”

    [Well done.]

    I love yellow cars! I don’t ever want to hear anybody say I DIDN’T SEE YOU!

  17. Semper Gumby says:

    Aubrey for President in ’16 sounds great. The next time the Russians harass one of our warships in the Black Sea, Pres. Aubrey would pick up the hotline to Moscow and say: “Now see here Putin, you scoundrel…”

  18. JonPatrick says:

    Vice President elect Maturin is late to the inauguration on account of working on the dissection of a rare bird found on the lawn of Blair House that morning. Fortunately Preserved Killick is able to intercept him before arrival to exchange his bloodstained coat with a clean one more in keeping with the occasion.

    [Which it’s the Killick reference that did it.]

    The rest of my car is a bulletin board of Father Z swag; God bless our Bishops, God bless our Priests, Zed Heads…

    Plus others such as Sensus Fidelium, and “I Love the Latin Mass”.

    Park that in you typical Liberal parish!

    We liberals call your explanation, which ignores the obvious, ‘cognitive dissonance.’ I, of course, would never put such a bumper sticker on a car where “Jeeves Wooster 16” so clearly belongs.

    [Jeeves – Wooster – has potential, I admit.]

  21. Mike says:

    We liberals call your explanation, which ignores the obvious, ‘cognitive dissonance.’

    Back in the hard-charging 1980s, an earnest liberal newspaper columnist in my lawyer-sodden town espied a DIE YUPPIE SCUM sticker on the bumper of a shiny new BMW, and trotted out some existential blah about why a Yuppie would do that—completely missing the very likely explanation that the Yuppie was not the doer, but rather, ironically, the done-to.

    Father Z’s explanation admits of a different kind of irony, to which liberals appear still to be immune.

  22. PostCatholic says:

    This liberal has been known to enjoy the occasional O’Brian historical fantasy. I am not alone in that—”autres pays, autre merde” Rev. Zuhlsdorf and I finally have a pint of humor in common, so gather ye rose-pods while ye may.

  23. LarryW2LJ says:

    “I would vote for the corpse of Millard Fillmore ……”

    Seems I’ve heard that somewhere before.

  24. Wow, three Gold Stars and one Sour Grapes. We have had a busy day!

  25. Makemeaspark says:

    Well that certainly is better than the “lesser of two weevils” choice…

  26. Venerator Sti Lot says:

    Running the corpse of Millard Fillmore (ol’ Lucky Thirteen), hmm… Does Fr. Z know something about the latest Seth Grahame-Smith project that scoops the Hollywood insiders? (Does it feature Hillary with a Bride of Frankenstein coiffure?)

  27. Matt Robare says:

    In The Ionian Mission, I think, mention is made of an incident where Captain Aubrey threw some lawyers out of a window. How many politicians one can name who should have the people’s opinion of their conduct made so plain.

  28. hwriggles4 says:

    Fr. Z:

    Your comment about Millard Fillmore cracked me up. During the 2012 race, my hope was our current sitting president would go out the same way Franklin Pierce did. Pierce did such a poor job as the 14th President that his own party failed to support him for a second term.

    Wake Up America!
