Disaffected Pickup Truck Can’t Spell, Hates ‘Politian + CEO’S’

by Jack Stuef

And yet we still pay full price for Truck Nutz.
According to some guy on Tumblr: “How long was I in Virginia before spotting a handwritten, misspelled Tea Party message on a dry-erase board duct-taped to the back of a truck? Literally ten minutes.”

If you can’t read this (elitists need a special pair of populist 3-D glasses), here is what it says:

Politian + CEO’S
S0LD our Jobs
USA (No FuturE)

Let this be a lesson to all you protectionist pickup trucks out there: Important rear-end messages such as this are best made by something more permanent than a whiteboard. Obviously some librul activists INFILDTRAYTED this marker board and changed the letters so it just looks like this is the work of an idiot who can’t spell. [Tyler Coates via Wonkette operative "Juli Weiner"]


Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.


TaniaGail December 22, 2010 at 8:03 pm

Teaparty? When did the DU go TeaParty?

JoshuaNorton December 22, 2010 at 8:08 pm

Literally ten minutes

It's like you won the lottery. A really crappy lottery.

Trucknutz, also?

Mindblank December 22, 2010 at 8:43 pm


cheaphits December 23, 2010 at 11:29 am

He's saving up for a nice set of trucknutz, probably made from whiteboard.

noodlesalad December 22, 2010 at 8:13 pm

The white board makes it easier to switch up the message at red lights when the talk radio informs him about his new enemies.

Pithaughn December 22, 2010 at 8:41 pm

Using advanced white board message recovery software I was able to see that just recently this whiteboard was messageing "911 gRownd Zeo Mosk = $laveriry"

Of course, when he stops at the liquor store, you can always change to the obscenity of your choice.

Ducksworthy December 23, 2010 at 9:51 am

Ahem. Talk radio has not never said the phrase "greedy CEO". CEO's are the heros of our age, the job creators, the captains of industry. Even if they're all Chinese now.

StillGoinGreen December 23, 2010 at 10:47 am

Not even Radio America? Oh yeah, nobody listens to them.

Angry_Marmot December 22, 2010 at 8:15 pm

Poor bastard finally figured out he's been hosed– but why is he voting Republican?

jim89048 December 22, 2010 at 8:19 pm

It's like what they say about someone who commits suicide has killed the wrong person. These fools have plenty to be pissed about, they are just pissed at the wrong people.

noodlesalad December 22, 2010 at 8:36 pm

It's like a tea party eclipse – every so often everything lines up and they realize that rich white men have sold their cracker asses up the river. Then Glenn Beck starts talking about African Nazis and Sarah Palin messes with their hormones and the moment is lost.

Radiotherapy December 22, 2010 at 9:27 pm

You meant, of course, the job creator white men, right?

PhilippePetain December 23, 2010 at 11:09 am

And visited that misery on those around them. Hm…interesting!

bumfug December 22, 2010 at 8:15 pm

I was going to say he spelled CEOs right but of course he put an apostrophe in it.

Mahousu December 22, 2010 at 9:37 pm

Actually, using a possessive form with a CEO is always appropriate.

bumfug December 22, 2010 at 9:49 pm

Spelling aside, I can't really disagree with the guy.

No shit. Even Jesus hates gread.

horsedreamer_1 December 23, 2010 at 9:24 am

Is that like one of those Greek breads, pita or something? 'Cause everyone knows Jesus loved that.

ifthethunderdontgetya December 22, 2010 at 9:48 pm

My thought, too.

He isn't worshiping the greed-heads. Except for the speeeeling, spot on.

trampndirtdown December 22, 2010 at 10:57 pm

I agree but I also thought the last word was torture.

transfatz December 23, 2010 at 4:12 am

Ah, bipartisanship at last. Second Amendment remedies anyone?

Negropolis December 23, 2010 at 6:17 am

I don't disagree with him an iota, until I think beyond the initial sign and realize that it's very likely this guy votes Republican, and is thus voting for the pawns of CEOs.

Even the devil quotes scripture, and even a broken clock is right twice a day, as they say.

StillGoinGreen December 23, 2010 at 10:52 am

My unemployed Mexi-American brother-in-law voted for Rick fucking Perry – "cause he will keep America from taxing us to death!". I gave up at that point and started my "Leaving Las Vegas" exit strategy.

You gotta respect someone who ends their sign with the original title of their favorite Sex Pistols track. That is one grate Amerian (Pretty Vacant).

Is that an umlaut over the O in "sold"?

This is a good argument for spaying or neutering all pickup trucks.

Rotundo_ December 23, 2010 at 4:54 pm

Almost certainly. And the kids are likely to be the same or worse. Imagine a rustier truck with a couple of subwoofer boxes out back and stars and bars festooned in the rear window, Kid Rock pumping loud enough to drown out the open pipes and a pair of methbillies breeding on the bench seat. Daddy was sophisticated enough to fire off political commentary on his truck. Junior will just puke on his.

donner_froh December 22, 2010 at 9:24 pm

Since it is a dry-erase board it would be pretty easy for some undercover Muslin to sneak up and change the message to Allah Akbar/Kill Whitey with appropriate spelling and punctuation.

problemwithcaring December 22, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Holding these sentiments doesn't make you a teabagging Republican. Mispelling these sentiments on a white board duct-taped to your vehicle (which burns more natural resources going to the mall than an entire village in China uses in a year) does mean that you're about as self-aware as one.

A state that brought us the likes of General George Washington and General Robert E. Lee. They were once the Texas of the Union: prideful, overbearing, and loud as all hell.

HistoriCat December 23, 2010 at 9:54 am

I went to college in VA. No lie – there was a guy there who was convinced that the state's big mistake in the Civil War was joining the Confederacy; he believed Virginia would have been much better off if they had just seceded and gone off on their own.

As a Virginian, I'm a little taken aback at some of these comments. Don't you folks have "Patriot Boards" on your trucks in other states? Well, Hawaii I'm sure doesn't, but you others? Come on!

Beowoof December 22, 2010 at 11:38 pm

I would bet for the cost of that truck, he could have bought himself some education at the local community college and had enough left over for a Hyundai.

Well it is clear he went out and bought the big truck and we can all see how that money was well spent.

tribbzthesquidz December 22, 2010 at 11:38 pm

Yes, they sold your jawbz and your United States as you cheered them on and voted for them, Virginia. Now you has a sad?
From time to time I speculate about how things would be were Colin Powell to have been elected in 2000. I bet there would have been a big 3rd party split with roughly the same cast of teabaggerers freaking out about having a sane Af-Am president. America's not ready!!!111!!!!

HempDogbane December 23, 2010 at 12:59 am

Colin Powell, show us your birth certificate. Also, why do you hate the troops?

Colin Powell had real potential. I was astounded that he allowed himself to be self destructed by a idiot.

horsedreamer_1 December 23, 2010 at 9:31 am

More than likely, a Bush-Gore-Powell election would have been thrown to the House, & since I think the GOP was the majority in more than half the House delegations (at least in part 'cause places like Wyoming & the Dakotas only elect one representative), we still would have gotten Bush.

WarAndGee December 23, 2010 at 1:14 am

Er…It may be possible to burp and fart, at the same time, to produce a more grammatically correct message.

But these are desperate times. With that in mind I'd like introduce the apostrophe "S" semi-colon


Ta Daaaaaah.

It is very useful and may save us from our national decline if we apply it to signs posted on the stupidly inefficient vehicles we bought 10 years ago when we thought we could send all our jobs overseas and believed REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS, CEO'S and Wall Street were delivering us the the American "dream" whereby personal and public debt didn't matter.


Ducksworthy December 23, 2010 at 10:17 am

See what it was is, just like deficits don't matter, sending all the jobs overseas didn't matter cause we were going to be an information economy and all these brilliant truck nutz loving NASCAR imbeciles would have no-work jobs in IT. Until all those jobs went to Bangalore, where they can spell, in English.

Chet Kincaid December 23, 2010 at 1:24 am

Don't get why the content of this message is "teabag." Just because the person can't spell? Aside from the spelling, that sign is just a run-of-the-mill Drunk Wonketteer comment.

tribbzthesquidz December 23, 2010 at 1:42 am

Not necessarily up our own ass in a bad way. More than the spelling is the timing. And the commitment all of the sudden to paste a dry-erase board to the back of one's truck. That office accessory didn't get there because Bush was president. And it's also likely that this is not a crazed paranoid leftist since those folks usually have lots and lots of stickers. Perhaps libertarian. Probably in a pot-smoking white-person white-powr-but-listens-to-rap sorta way.
Is "no future" a reference to the Sex Pistols? That could complicate things.

BaldarTFlagass December 23, 2010 at 7:58 am

Worse yet, a tangential Sarah Connor reference?

Negropolis December 23, 2010 at 6:34 am

The GOP is perfect at taking misguided misery/despair and channeling it into an unholy, indiscriminate hate/rage. In other words, the GOP has perfected the art of the Two Minute Hate. It's really not that hard to manipulate these kind of people when you realize that not only haven't most of them gotten over desegregation, but they haven't gotten over losing the not-so-Civil War.

Cognitive dissonance, much?
