McCain: about as exciting as a mid-80s K-car

I saw my first McCain bumper sticker yesterday and two things struck me. One, I’m surprised it took this long to find a single supporter in the republican-heavy area I live in, and two, the logo looked familiar. Thanks to 30 seconds of google image search, I think I figured it out:


  1. I like how the “Paid for by John McCain” ad is showing in the right sidebar in a post that you are clearly not promoting him! Excellent.

  2. You have it all wrong! It’s the MCI logo with an extra “c”, “A” and “N” thrown in and the “swoosh” flipped horizontally. :)

  3. Now I’m not McCain supporter but I like his logo. I think it simple and strong. If anything the Chrysler logo is trying to emulate a military feel while McCain was actually in the military.

  4. What old is new again: Chrylser LLC went back to the “pentastar” logo after the restructuring. The cars still use the wings and ribbon, but the company itself has reverted. I haven’t a clue when we’ll see the uglified pentastar on vehicles…

  5. As a former owner of a 1987 Dodge Aries coupe (66 rapid horsepower), I’m getting a kick out of these replies.
    Then again, I did manage to put 460,000km on it before letting it rust away. I had to start it each morning by smashing the solenoid with a hammer (I expect McCain needs to follow a similar regimen).
