Freeper Encounter Just Now at My Local Walgreen's!

OK,I am in shock. I have in the past encountered freepers at work and even in my own family at holiday get togethers. However, NOTHING compares to what just happened to me.This just happened about a half an hour ago. I am not exaggerating or embellishing this at all.This is EXACTLY what happened
I had some photos on my camera and downloaded them and sent them to Walgreen's last night. I was driving into the parking lot to go pick them up.I noticed another car pull in right next to me. As I got out the driver from the other car got out as well.I noticed a bumper sticker on her car of Obama as the joker with the words SOCIALIST on it. I have seen it on the internet and the news and at videos of town hall meetings and tea party protests but never actually saw a bumper sticker with it. I glanced down,never looking at the driver, and I just smirked. THAT WAS ALL I DID. Well, the driver,this soccer Mom, saw my smirk and just went off on me.She started in on this rant about Obama and socialism and how liberals are destroying the country and so on. Having said that,this woman who I describe as a Soccer Mom in her mid to late 30's called me something I had never been called before,especially by a woman. She called me the C word (???) She said the C word 4 times. I noticed a baby car seat in the back but luckily no kids were with her. Only one person exited the store and it was an elderly woman who looked surprised to hear this angry rant. She looked at both of us and went to her car and got the hell out of there. The entire rant lasted about 20 seconds and I at first ignored her and started walking to the entrance.I then said to her to SHUT UP!(only thing that came to mind) I am terrible in situations like this. I always just freeze and never say what I should. It's always afterwords when I think of things to say but I was in total shock. For someone to freak out over me smirking at a bumper sticker.Can you imagine what she would have done if I said something? What would she have done if I had a Pro Obama sticker on my car? All I could think of was to tell her to shut up in which she responded, "WE WON'T BE SILENCED!!!"
She then got back in her car and left and when she did she peeled out of the parking lot at full speed. No, I did not get her license plate number. I guess she was so angry she decided not to go in the drug store. Maybe she was angry with me she did not want to be in the same store as me,who knows. I just felt it was odd that we both pulled into the parking lot at the same time and she did not even go in for whatever it was she came here for.Guess I should have waited to see if she came back.I know a lot will get on me for not speaking out and be pissed I let this freeper rant without me doing anything about it. I can not say enough how shocked I was. I had only been awake for about 20 minutes or so, no coffee and like I said,who freaks out over just a smirk? I mentioned it to the clerk inside and he just shrugged his shoulders. I came home and needed to vent. I PRAY I see this woman again. I am going to be on full alert watching for this car and woman. ANYONE,liberal or conservative who goes of the deep end over something like this needs help. I assumed she had the sticker on her car as a way to express herself and her views. I smirked and found it amusing and also disgusting and she freaked out. She can express herself but I can not? Like I said, I wish I had thought of that to say to her.Anyway, sorry for the rant. It was too much excitement for me this early in the AM without my coffee over something so minor.I am more terrified of these nuts than I am any foreign terrorist.
