Bumper stickers of the clueless

I drove behind a car today with this bumper sticker: "The last time people listened to a * bush * folks wandered in the desert for forty years." I thought this was both a clueless and funny bumpersticker, since it showed such vast cultural ignorance. Yes, the Jews did wander in the desert for 40 years -- but they weren't slaves anymore. Clearly, the proud possessor of this bumpersticker was so ignorant he (or she) didn't realize that the sojourn in the desert was actually a step up from what came before, and was a necessary by-way on the road to the Promised Land.
