Has anyone here ever seen an "Obama 'Change' lapel pin"?? I haven't. I realize that this is a joke, but how many car sales people run around with political lapel pins like that? They may wear a "non-denominational" flag pin, but in my experience, most sales folks just want to make a buck, not some vapid political statement that might offend someone.

I give this "joke" a half thumb up only because it's mild in comparison to most of the nasty racist stuff that comes through here.

Concur. Premise is silly, the humor is smirk-worthy at best, but the lack of racism or other blather makes it tolerable.

I myself have a low tolerance for political humor where the joke works equally well if you swap the names of the parties.

Ferschitz beat me to it.

One, I've never seen a "change" lapel pin.

Two, I've never seen a car salesman - or any other salesperson - wearing a partisan political pin, ever. They're friggin' SALESPEOPLE - the customer is always right, because that's how you make money. (At most, I've occasionally encountered a salesperson who would make political comments AGREEING with the customer, IF they were sure they knew the customer's political leanings, but that's it.)

And three, is there some sort of implication that car salespeople are Democrats? The union guys who make American cars (i.e., not Toyota) might lean Democratic, but retail sales is a whole different animal, and, unlike unionized manufacturing, has no particular Democratic leanings. Is the joke-writer to dumb to know the difference between unionized, Democratic-leaning, American-car manufacturing labor, and non-union, not-particularly-Democratic, foreign-car sales labor??

This joke is so dumb that it makes my head hurt.
