OK people . . I am on vacation in Santa Cruz where I went to college. Today I wore my Obama t-shirt while walking around my old college town where there were 2 options: liberal and radical.
TWICE I was the target of street speech about my shirt. Exchange #1 went like this (the guy seemed mentally ill so I stopped myself from answering)
Guy: I don’t like your shirt — Don’t you know Obama sounds like Osama?!?!?!?!
Other interaction involved a car with 4 18 – 20 year old men and women yelling, “Fuck Obama” at me. Clearly not mentally ill. Just stupid. So what’s up? I get 60 year old business people who favor McCain but 20 year old kids? Wow. I am scared.
