linguists for bush

John Egan argues in the New York Times hat the latest New Yorker cover won't hurt Barack Obama. The reason? People get it, even camouflaged Montanans. Who may be members of a club you didn't know existed:
A big red-headed guy in a pickup pulling a fishing boat stopped in front of Barack Obama headquarters here — loaded for bear, as they say.
Land Tawney, a fifth-generation Montanan with a gap-toothed smile, was wearing a plaid shirt and a camouflage cap atop his head. He belongs to Sportsmen for Obama, which sounds like Facebook Users for McCain, or Linguists for Bush.
