The irony was too perfect.

Parked just across from me was a beautiful 2010 Cadillac Escalade. Duly appointed in leather, chrome and all the niceties that wealth can afford in a luxury, platinum edition SUV, there was no subtlety in the message that this vehicle communicated. In the middle of its back window was a big window sticker that stated: “Bring It On. Vote Democrat.”

Parked next to the Escalade and appropriately to its right, was a 2009 Toyota Prius in that Silver Pine Mica color that says, “Be Green.” It too had a big window sticker on its back window, and it proudly proclaimed: “Oh It’s On. Vote Republican.”

So let’s repaint this picture.

On the left was an ostentatious, gas swilling (15 mpg), “Yeah, I’ve got money” SUV that shouted: Vote Democrat.

On the right was an unpretentious, gas stingy (nearly 50 mpg), “Yeah, I pinch pennies” hybrid that shouted: Vote Republican.

You can't make this stuff up.
