Joke: How to show support for your candidate in the 2004 presidential election.
Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2004]
Origins: This bit of election humor from 2004 combines a couple of elements we've seen before: the concept of driving with headlights on during the daytime to express solidarity with a group, and the partisan humor of suggesting that adherents of different parties engage in similar activities that (if implemented) would work to the detriment of one side. Unlike the example from 2000, however, the item quoted above isn't likely to cause any confused recipients to miss their dates with the ballot box (unless they're gullible enough to actually go driving around at night with their headlights off).
