I don’t put political signs in my Yard. The big reason is the wife doesn’t like them, and when I bring them up she nixes the idea of putting them up. Also given politicians ability to go back on their promises, I’ll stand behind her. I mean I feel guilty about sending money to Scott Brown, as he’s broken every last one of his campaign promises. If I was hired for a job, and yet failed every one of my duties, they wouldn’t wait for my annual review to fire my ass…I’m just sayin’!
I went for a walk through some back streets of my neighborhood and I noticed something interesting. First I’ll note that my town is one of the most conservative towns in Massachusetts, so I saw more Republican signs than Democrat ones. Still the Democrat signs were all for Elizabeth Warren, and it seemed if they had a Warren sign, they had an Obama one too.
Meanwhile the Republican signs I saw were paired signs for Scott Brown, and Richard Tisei (An Openly Gay Republican with some strong libertarian leanings, I suspect he’ll win, as he’s got some issues with Organized Crime and Money Laundering in his family… He claims to have no knowledge of this, but that’s like Bill Clinton saying he didn’t have sex with that woman!
I only saw one Romney sign (tho the sign was bigger than the owner’s house, so maybe that counts more). As they say, signs don’t vote, but I think this speaks volumes. We know Romney here, and we’re not impressed.
