Same reaction if you put an NRA sticker on the back of a Volvo, and parked it the lot at Whole Foods.
26.2 is the number of miles in a typical marathon foot race. It indicates that the vehicle owner has either run this distance, or is in training to do so. I'm guessing the 2.62 stickers are meant as a backlash of sorts. Then again, it could just be to mask a blemish in the paint.
Sorry, I'm sick with a nasty cold today, and the Robitussin is making me think non-good thoughts.
