Crazed Neocon in the far right lane!

An odd occurrence this afternoon indicates to me that neocons and their supporters may finally be losing it totally. Or maybe not, but it was nonetheless very odd.
I was driving home this afternoon. I should mention that I am still not over the 2000 election, and still have a bumper sticker on my car that says ‘Re-defeat Bush,’ and lists the popular vote totals from that election. So. I stop at a red light, as is my custom. Another car pulled up next to me on the right. Out of the corner of my eye I saw the driver kind of gesticulating, but I figured he was talking on the phone or something like that.
I looked over a few seconds later, to see a 50-ish man, who was minus some front teeth, staring at me intently. When he saw me looking, he began to roll down his window. I rolled down the window on the passenger side, thinking that maybe he was going to tell me that I had a flat or something. But no.
“I noticed your bumper sticker,’ he said. Living in Massachusetts, a heavily blue state, I figured he would give me a thumbs up or some seal of approval. Wrong. He continued; 'Why don’t you get yourself an education about geopolitics?”
Somewhat taken aback, I replied, shouting between cars, “I’m actually very educated.”
“Oh yeah?’ he shot back, ‘I bet you’re one of those people who considers this, but doesn’t consider that!”
Having endured much worse insults in my day, I replied that actually I considered everything.
“If you did that,’ he countered, his voice beginning to shake with anger, ‘You would know that George W. Bush is the ONLY one who has ever or could ever stand up to those oil producing Arab states!”
This was not the conversation that I expected to have between two cars, but I was game. I shouted over “You mean like Saudi Arabia? Yeah, he REALLY stands up to them!”
My adversary paused for a minute, checked that the light was still red, and then responded with a bon mot worthy of Oscar Wilde, or perhaps Dorothy Parker; “You cocksucker!’ he screamed, the spittle flying from where his teeth should have been, ‘Fuck you you fucking DILDO!”
By this time I had had enough of him, and, the light still being red, I responded with the suggestion that he and his mother shared an unnaturally intimate relationship. Fortunately, the light turned green at this point, and he stomped on his accelerator, squealing his tires as he went on his way. Naturally, he made a right turn.

Oh, that's right

You live in a state where they don't arm the half wits. You were quite brave to respond with fighting words.

So many possible responses.

Change the subject:
"Say, I think I used to live in the same apartment as your mother. I recognize your car. How is she?"

Act friendly.
"The people at the clinic asked me to check see if you are taking your medicine. You are taking those pills every day, right?"

Reply in kind.
"You'd know all about dildos, you cunt" (Appologies to to anyone offended, unless it is your 50 something right winger.)

Go personal.
"I can't believe I'm arguing with someone with a mouth like a bottle opener."

Get a bumper sticker like my current icon.

that's a crazy story! i can't believe people really think that way. they have to resort to the cocksucker bit eventually, because they run out of things to say that make sense, even to them. ps- to the previous commenter, as one who occasionally objects to the word, good use of "cunt."

I meant to comment earlier, but Holy Balls! What a tool! Does he even have a clue about respecting other people's opinions? This is why I can't argue with close-minded morons. I'd end up stabbing them in the neck for having weak arguments (not to mention brains).

And this is also the reason I tend to walk around quoting Mojo-Jojo from The Powerpuff Girls - "Accursed people..."
