       July 25, 2004

    I was driving down I-66 yesterday, heading from Falls Church to DC, when I spotted a car sporting the Virginia license plate "LIBERAL." As you would expect, the driver somewhat oblivious to the world around her and was doing about 5 under the speed limit and causing congestion in the right hand lane. Despite this, I got really, really, excited upon seeing the plate and immediately slammed on the brakes and got behind her, and started hysterically demanding that my passenger start snapping pics immediately. Suffice it to say, she was a little freaked out by my reaction, but hey, when you're a crack reporter for an internationally respected newssource such as, you take these things seriously.

    I'm shocked that this woman apparently finds it A-OK to advertise her mental disease on the back of her car. I wonder if she'd get a similar plate that read "SCHIZO" or "BIPOLAR."

    For that matter, I wonder of the Virginia DOT would even allow a "BIPOLAR" plate to issue. Did you ever see that feature on the smoking gun where they list the letters that various DOTs have received, requesting that certain plates be cancelled? Examples include 'FL 8 ME,' '50HATER,' and, of course, the perennial favorite, 'IH8GOP.'

    I think it might be fun to write to the Virginia DOT to request that it be cancelled on the grounds that 1) it offends me, or, alternatively, on the grounds that it insults people afflicted with this mental disease, just like a plate that read "RETARDED" would undoubtedly "offend" some. Hey, maybe I could even get the ACLU on my my side.....
