When a Choice is Placed Before You…

Seeing that we at Mormons for Obama are not without sin, I don’t want to be the first to cast a stone at another; (so can somebody else please do it for me, and then I will surreptitiously cast the second stone?)  And then there’s that thing about a glass house; (is that even biblical?)  Well, Buzzfeed caught wind of this and put it out there - (the media is running out of Mormon stories to run): some Romney Mormons have co-opted the “Choose the Right” slogan and slapped it underneath the Romney logo to drum up Mormon fervor for the Mormon candidate.  (As if they needed to do that.)  Click on this link for the Buzzfeed article.

Clearly, we have riffed the “I’m a Mormon” campaign with our bumper stickers – and so legally, I can’t find fault with these people too much, except to ponder, “why didn’t we think of making buttons?”  Although Buzzfeed does make a good point: Isn’t Romney trying to distance himself from the religion discussion, and isn’t this unhelpful in that regard?

Well, regardless of their intent, I feel I should respond in this way: instead of being upset because my childhood CTR ring (that would invariably leave a rusty-brown line around my finger not unlike the ring circling the inside of a dirty commode,) has now been connected with a political candidate who just might begin spewing white oil any day now, I have produced my own version of their bumper sticker… and then all associations with happy memories of my youth are washed away.  And please, no need to ask!  Feel free to use this graphic in all your Romney campaigning this fall:

    How about this for an Obama sticker – Choose The Right . . Man!

  2. Kathy Says:

    Excellent deduction!

    So funny! Years ago I did a parody of a CTR extremist political movement. I never thought my joke would make it to actual campaign stickers! It’s a sign of end times.

  4. Shauna Swenson Says:

    This made me giggle.

  5. Katie Says:

    Joseph, don’t worry, hipster buttons are soooo 2004.

  6. Wendy Says:

    Where can I get a “Mormons for Obama” pin without Moroni on it?
