Goodbye, bumper sticker.
We both knew when this started that this was going to be a tough battle for name recognition. You sure did your part, up and down the highways, at stop lights and in various parking lots up and down the state. We saw a bunch more just like you as we traveled around this state. Who knows how many eyes saw you and asked "Who is Dennis Richardson?" or said "Go, Dennis!".
You don't look as crisp as you did when I put you on. Back then you had a shiny white background and your green letters were a bold forest green. Now your white background is cracked, your green letters are UV faded to a sickly pale blue -- all covered with a general election season's worth of road grime.
In a way, you still look good, though. Like a sage old man who has stood for what is right in the face of all manner of political correctness. You can be proud of your scars and blemishes.
I'm going to peel you off now. Your work is done. You'll make room for another candidate in 2016 -- or heck, maybe even earlier, if we get some good ballot measures.
Goodbye, bumper sticker. You were a beacon of hope for Oregon.
