Mondale Ferraro sounds like a delicious chocolate treat or a bogus supercar.
That Ford Dole sticker is incredibly plain and boring. A perfect representation of the candidates.
This car is only 10 years old (: I love the deliberate action of this
Yea, they are called Libertarians!
Ba dum tis.
But I want to imagine this guy as the most frustrated swing voter in America
The Nixon Lodge: "Where you can resign from it all"
But the Ford Dole is the car you can afford.
Statistically, there are people who have voted for the loser every time.
For those interested, the Dole/Kemp site is here. It's beautiful.
Edit: Damn it Reddit. This is why we can't have anything nice. Here it is from the internet Archive.
The Romney Ryan 'R' really looks like a dab of toothpaste.
Am I the only one who forgot Clinton’s running mate?
Imagine having a President/Vice President duo named Humphrey and Muskie.
I guess America at the time couldn't either.
Gotta read it is mon-dahl-eh
I am not a bed and breakfast.
That hurts man
He was pretty forgettable.
Boring is not a terrible quality in a politician... or in people in general. You can do a lot worse than boring.
Or... OP is a time traveler taunting us by posting proof of powers on reddit.
Come on down to Dole Ford, Lincoln, Mercury where you can get this spectacular used Taurus with only 50k miles for the low, low price of 5999.95!
"McGovern" Seems like a shoo-in
In France the Ford Dole is pronounced Dole-Ay
and-a do-a your-a fingers like-a this-a
It IS beautiful
I am not a cook!
And do your fingers like this.
Must've sucked being the only kid with Goldwater 64. Multiplayer was a blast!
Ford-Dole is the best of any of these.
Most of of them have cliche flags and stars and colored lines that are intended to symbolize strength and authority. They actually create an impression of tacky cheapness. These logos look weak, distracted, and in some cases are even difficult to read.
Ford-Dole clearly lays out who the two candidates are (including an interesting separation through the use of the color blocks - you're getting two distinct individuals for the price of one!), graphically evokes the American flag, uses a bold, easily readable typeface, and keeps the distractions to a minimum. It's a logo for candidates who will get things done. It's the best designed of any of them.
is IS down :-(
Q: How do you know someone is a Libertarian?
A: Don’t worry, they’ll tell you.
It only hurts cause it's true
(still got a Johnson 2012 sticker somewhere)
You've got to admire the success rate of... Failure.
We did it Reddit!
Or an airline logo.
I think Clinton probably forgot about her running mate. Everyone did.
Considering 350 mil Americans, I'm actually not convinced that someone voted for the wrong president for 40+ years in a row. It would mean:
A) anyways voting in presidential elections
B) basically never voting for an incumbent (except Ford i think)
C) switching parties a lot
Now if you're talking about people who only voted in a couple elections, obviously you're right, but I'm assuming you're thinking about people voting since these sticker's represented elections.
Hey y’all, this is my car! I was hoping that people would find this idea cool / lame. Looks like I succeeded in some measure. It is mildly interesting!
All the stickers are original and purchased off of eBay.
Why did I do it?
It is hilarious. It was something to collect. It is a mockery of how shortsighted political bumper stickers are. It is also a vague statement against tribalism. And, to be honest, it is also in praise of losers, because we are all tired of so much winning.
Here are some more pics for proof. The second one was before I decided to go pre-Carter.
The hosting bill probably gets paid every month on automatic and the actual charge is so small as to just get buried in the bureaucracy of the DNC or whoevers card is getting charged.
"Hey whats this $12 charge every month to XYZ Hosting?" "No idea, but its on there every month going back 20 years so it must be something important."
EDIT: Its actually way more interesting than that, it looks like somebody runs a private archive of political websites, i looked up theDomain Name: DOLEKEMP96.ORG Registry Domain ID: D98201782-LROR Registrant Organization: 4President Corporation Registrant Street: 5644 Dunlap Ave Registrant City: Shoreview Registrant State/Province: MN Registrant Postal Code: 55126 Registrant Country: US
Looked THAT up
Looks to be an archive of campaign materials of all sorts, so someone is actually maintaining this one for historical purposes.
Jesus is this ever true. I fucking yearn for boring command right now. Just to wake up and read USA today and see "president shakes hand of other leader, says generally-agreeable-to-most-people thing may happen" as a headline. What a fucking dream.
Clinton Kaine sounds like a pornstar name.
I bet Gerald Ford would have had a great Twitter account.
Lmfao I was thinking "hey isn't that actually a car?"
How do they pronounce the Big Mac
Big Mac's a Big Mac but they call it Le Big Mac.
Yeah, it's extremely difficult to imagine the mind of someone who votes for Humphrey and McGovern, but then turns around in 1976 and pulls the lever for Ford. Who votes for Gore and Kerry two elections running but not Obama either time. Who really digs Bob Dole but also Michael Dukakis.
I think maybe the only reason someone might choose this slate of candidates is they've got a pathological need for the least charismatic leader possible.
I think kerry and Edward logo is the best.
Hillary and kaine logo looks like it's for a hospital.
"Today's Headlines November 5, 1996"
This raises some questions.
Did they collect all the stickers over a few decades? If so, what made them decide that this Toyota Corolla was "the one" to be adorned? Or did they just buy all these on ebay?
The bumper is full. Do they plan on either dying or getting a new car before 2020? If the latter, how are they going to remove all those bumper stickers?
Why do they have to remove them all? It's just a dumb fun thing they decided to do to their car to have a little fun. I don't think you need to have a four year plan for a little bumper sticker goof.
That was by design. Basic strategy in any game is that high risk/high reward is for losers. When you're winning, you play it safe, and when you're losing, you take chances. She was winning, so she picked the most boring running mate she could.
Contrast Sarah Palin. McCain knew he was at a disadvantage, so he took a risk. Ultimately that risk hurt him, but hindsight is 20/20. If he played it safe he could almost guarantee losing. But by picking someone like Palin, at least he had a chance she would inspire some sort of an upset. It just didn't happen.
They are almost out of space. Does that mean the country is over?
I heard the rooms are bugged
Someone needs to create a novelty account where he tweets right now as if he is in office. And cover the exact same topics as the current POTUS
Man, can you imagine being the confused webadmin when out of the blue some old website for a failed presidential run gets overloaded.
Animated coffee cup in '96!?
Hillary and kaine logo looks like it's for a hospital.
It reminds me of 9/11
Where we're going, we don't need presidents
I don’t like Gary Johnson. I’d much prefer Rand Paul
You ever seen the movie the postman? Guys name was ford Lincoln mercury.
Make America OK Again.
Except America doesn't want to be governed
We just want a leader who makes everything better
It's adorable that you think there's going to be a 2020
I voted for Dukakis in our kindergarten presidential election. His name was funny.
You're already here
I didn't tell you anything, and I'm a libertarian. \s
Found the graphic designer.
Really I agree though. it's simple and effective with a strong focus on the type, which is what you are aiming for when displaying political alignment stickers, seeing as people only have seconds to see it sometimes.
He had great eyebrows though.
They still call Johny Hendricks "Bigg Rigg", except its "Le Bigg Rigg".
Whoops, wrong sub for this joke
Be the change.
Instructions unclear, fingers stuck in dick
I'm not real big on Johnson anymore, either. I'm not really a libertarian, I just used to play one on tv.
No, only the beds are bugged.
President sends condolences to victims of hurricane. Steps up aide efforts. Doesn’t mention anything else or stir the pot.
President attends Lions game and cheers for Home team. Shares nachos with fans and then goes home after a long day. Doesn’t mention anything about players protesting or calling owners losers for not threatening players.
Man, how much I would love headlines like that now.
You can't hurt me! I'm an endangered species! I'm a...uh...I'm a bush quail! Yeah, a bush quail!
Do you like football? Do you like nachos?
Bibby boppy bada ba boopy?
top of the line, spared no expense.
Didn't his son get arrested for being in antifa and attacking someone or something?
Should’ve thrown some ads on there. The 21 years might’ve paid off.
huh, you'd think graphic artists would add "does this look like 9/11" to their list. you know, the "does this look like a penis" or "does this look like a swastika" list.
Unless they voted third party every time
Seems like they stopped giving a shit when they lost?
Ah yes, Bulgaria's own supercar. The Ferraro can beat a Cheetah in a one mile drag race!
The chef has just been repeating “I am not a cook” for the last few decades
it doesn't say he was with antifa
I'm feeling comic book character. Either a reporter or a cowboy.

Also how Ford Prefect got his name …
Obama did some bad stuff as well, he just sneaky
There is a rare alternate universe where Dukakis / Bentsen won.
It is a strange and magical place, one wholy alien to our timeline, a world we would not recognise.
What sort of mental gymnastics did you have to go through in order to vote Obama twice then vote for Trump?
