Bill Kristol in today's New York Times: I drove around the Washington suburbs, I saw not one but two cars -- rather nice cars, as it happens -- festooned with the Obama campaign bumper sticker "got hope?" And I relapsed into moroseness.

Got hope? Are my own neighbors' lives so bleak that they place their hopes in Barack Obama? Are they impressed by the cleverness of a political slogan that plays off a rather cheesy (sorry!) campaign to get people to drink milk? ...

Yeah, because no Republican would ever fall for a parody of that cheesy campaign, right?
