You know, I'd love to see a Obama/Colbert ticket in 2008, or 2012 or 2016... Assuming Stewart hasn't thrown his name in yet. ;-)

I've just probably been watching too much West Wing. Idealized politics and all that jazz.

Essentailly, a person has lots of reading material (bumper stickers) on their white van of a anti-bush, pro-gay, and pagan variety.
Neighborhood hoodlems decide to take it upon themselves to censor the van by SPRAY PAINTING over the stickers.

If you've ever been vandalized you know how helpless and violated it makes you feel. Worse when you are already in a minority (in terms of who is in charge, not in terms of numbers) and that minority message is targeted. It really makes the hate come home and makes you want to tell all those who say "oh it's not that bad" or "I don't mean YOU" to go fuck themselves.

And no, I am not for the concept of this as a "hate crime" since most crime of this nature is either motivated by stupidity, hate, or really stupid hate. The above would be all threee.

Anyway, if you would like to show these people that the good can overcome the stupid, donations can be made for van repair here:
