Hippies for McCain?

I know this has nothing to do with dating but I just wanted to ask if any of you can explain this to me.

Today I was driving on I95 from New Haven County to Fairfield County and saw a blue mini-cooper being driven by a man at least late 50’s or older with his long, white hair in a ponytail. He had ttwo stickers on the back of his car. One was a classic Grateful Dead sticker with the skull and lightening bolt in red, blue and silver. The other was a McCain sticker.

Hello? This does not compute!

Here’s how I see this equation:

Man with long hair in pony tail = hippie
Grateful Dead bumper sticker = hippie
Age of man – 50’s/60’s boomer = possible ex-hippie

McCain sticker = definitely not a hippie

Remember the 70’s? Question authority. Anti-government. Anti-war. Women’s Lib. Make Love not War (OK, maybe that was the 60’s)

I am so curious about this – I wish I could have called him on his cell and asked him to explain himself.

Is it just me?

  1. If you support any U.S. politician in any way shape or form, you are definitely not a hippie.

    Maybe Ron Paul can be an exception.. just maybe

  2. I’m from that generation and very conservative. I know many men with the long hair in a pony tail or braid, loves the Grateful Dead and are just as conservative as I am. “Don’t judge the book by it’s cover”.

    The conservative people DO question authority, believe in smaller government, are NOT war mongers and believe in women’s equality.
