    Man v. man

    Man v. man

    Spotted by reader Bob from Windsor, CO, while visiting in Irvine, CA.

    But what does it mean?  The usual configuration has lower case “man” twice, and is taken to mean that there is no real difference between the political parties. 

    But here it’s Man v. man? 

    Deep meaning, or a case for The Most Expensive Proofreader in America?

    (I like this explanation of the difference between Republicans and Democrats somewhat better.)

    Senator Dirksen's observations are as pertinent today (moreso!) as they were back in 1967.

    Of course liberals ('labellers'), being the stubborn lot that they are, blame the ills of society on conservatives. Imagine that.

    When I picture a liberal in my mind, I see an adolescent with fingers in both ears, eyes closed, mouth spewing 'lalalalalalalal'……

    Man= "the man"
    man= "everyday joe"?

    The answer might be in that find print under the slogan. All I could make out was "… for Understanding."

    I believe the person was referring to "Man" as in G-d, or the Messiah, who the Bible calls "the son of man." The "man" is just the everyday person living his/her life day by day.

    It somehow makes me think of Transcendental Meditation, New Age religion, and that once we all "evolve" to be a g-d (as Shirley MacClaine and her ilk believe), then the Utopian world will arrive, ending all this messy politics. Along the lines of John Lennon's Imagine "….and the world will be [or live] as one."

    Or, it could be that expensive lack of proofreading….

    I'm with Frank on this one. 'Man' refers to 'The Man,' whom the sticker considers Republicans to be in cahoots with. It's the typical liberal narrative of giant corporations, the wealthy, etc. being Republicans who then exploit the poor.

    I think the sticker is also proud that man can then exploit 'Man' under Democratic rule. It fits their 'defenders of the poor(or any other list of people whom require help)' mentality.

    Yeah, Frank's.

    However, along the lines of Dorothy Parker's four martinis and "under the host" quip… it could mean Republicans are more likely to be brutish gay males, and Democrats tender lesbians

    for anybody who's taken "Sticker Heteronormative Oppression, Latency, and Deconstruction 101."
