More of a graphic art fail

Wisconsin's was not to be a "bullet train."







But Republicans have some cause to be irked.

Right when I saw that sticker I thought crybaby libralls would flip on the blood premise if it involved a Dem.

No doubt. Poor taste is a nonpartisan quality.

If I'd seen either version of the bumpersticker while travelling at 72 mph, my first reaction would be that it was a pro-Walker, anti-train statement.

"It depicts a train hitting Walker's head with jagged red impact marks flying out."

What?

Clearly the train is exploding from within his (strangely-intact and not at all in the same plane) head. You'd think the AP could do better photo analysis.

This site shows the train-into-brain version. There is some evidence the free sticker was being offered as early as December 24. It's not clear to me if the Dems once offered both, or if they changed it after someone wised up. Choo-choo! Come on everybody, deride the train!

Aha! Google "high-speed fail" "get the sticker" and check the cached version, it shows the head-crash version.

Disappeared (scroll to "Crazy Train").
