Pathetic McCain Pranks
Someone stole our Obama for President sign from our yard last night. They stole nearly all the Obama signs in our neighborhood. The ones they didn't take they spray-painted black.

So I made this sign today and staked it in the yard. It is five feet wide and made out of foam-core board I had left over from making studio lighting for my photography. I fully expect the sign to be trashed by morning. At least they know the result of their pranks: we give more money to Obama's campaign.

I cut off the bottom of my original sign because Jimmy thought it was embarrassing. I simply wanted to put the message into words they (McCain supporters who are redneck enough to steal my Obama sign) would understand. But at Jimmy's request, I removed that portion and simply put an Obama sign underneath. I think it turned out better without the bottom.

This totally interrupted my day; I didn't eat lunch and I didn't get half of my work done. However, I definitely think this was worth most of my afternoon.

Just remember, every time you steal an Obama sign, we win. You indirectly cause more money to be donated to the Obama campaign and you make McCain seem even weaker.

You are so awesome.

Clinton supporters stole ours and put up gigantor Hillary signs in our yard. It was even weirder, because it was the day after the primary.

Funny... someone's been doing the exact same thing to all the McCain signs in our neighborhood.

Last election I didn't vote (I actively disliked both candidates at a very basic level), but this time I've been keeping track of things and honestly like both candidates. But seriously, I can't wait for this to be OVER.

I've never seen this much animosity between voters before an election. I mean, after the Bush/Gore election, yeah... but the amount of pure, unadulterated hate I have seen spewed as of late just makes me lament the good ole days of pistols-at-dawn. I expect it to break out into West Side Story any minute...

...wait a sec. That'd be kinda cool...

One day I hope the American people will be wise enough to vote in a third party candidate. I wish we had a 3 major party system. I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up voting for Bob Barr.

BTW, awesome sign. And I think you should have left the "Here's Your Sign" part. Everyone should be able to express their opinion on which candidate should win without stupid people stealing/vandalizing them.

i think the next major shift in the political party system is going to come in the form of a party split, most likely with the republicans. i see a mounting opposition within the party to the currently dominating neocon slant (i found this editorial to be an interesting insight), especially with the seeming embarrassment of the last 8 years (with the state of the war, the failure to capture bin laden, the current economic turmoil, a national debt now beyond $10 trillion, and approval ratings this low, it's hard to imagine why they wouldn't be embarrassed). when this split does come, and i'm guessing it'll be within the next 5-10 years, these third parties will have a great opportunity to establish a larger base. it's kinda like when the 1st baptist church has too many internal conflicts, so half the congregation leaves and starts the 2nd baptist church--usually more conservative than the 1st--and there's always people who turn presbyterian, even though they only sprinkle!

i very much respect your support of a third party candidate. unfortunately, in mississippi your vote will amount to pretty much what my vote for obama in tennessee will: little or nothing. maybe we should move?

I just noticed your sign has made it to the front page of reddit.com. Go Ginger!

I bet it will get picked up on Digg too.

That's awesome! It may not away the knuckleheads who ripped down the first one, but it will probably influence some people who are bordering on venturing into knucklehead territory to stop & think.
I'm here from reddit, by the way, and have friended you since, looking over the rest of your journal, you look interesting.

Where did you get another sign?

Mom keeps trying to get one here in Jackson but the office is always out :(

We ordered a large batch of them and shared them with friends. We had a couple left over but have ordered some more when the first one was stolen.

This is a brilliant response to a sophomoric act. Applause, from a long way away. The whole world is watching. :-)
