Eye On Olympia


Bumperactive, an online bumper-sticker maker ($4.50 each), is trying to design Barack Obama bumper stickers for every state.
There's "'bama for Obama" (Alabama, yes), "GumbObama" (Louisiana), a Cheeseheads-themed "Obama Favre" for Wisconsin and, for Arizona, "Re-elect Senator John McCain 2008." (Emphasis on "senator.")

In this field of competitors, alas, Washington's bumper sticker comes off as pretty feeble. I has a lot of evergreen trees, the stubby whiteness of Mt. Rainier, and "O B A M A" written across both. It's no Nebraska (Obama spelled out in corn kernels on a cob), Nevada (his smiling face on slot-machine wheels) or New Hampshire ("Live Free, Vote Barack" on a field of granite.)

But Idahoans, here's your chance. Idaho is one of the nearly three dozen states with no bumper sticker. Got ideas? The link above includes a way to send 'em emails. And they're still accepting ideas for the states that are already done.
