I put up a lawn sign


It was starting to bother me that pretty much all I see are McCain/Palin signs around these parts. It was also starting to bother me that I had some fear around putting up an Obama lawn sign.

Yesterday, I threw caution to the wind and put up a sign. Afterwards, Dick told me that someone nearby had someone smash up their Obama signs and make quite a mess of their yard. I thought I was just being paranoid. Oh well.

Image note: Robert Rauschenberg
I do not know the name of this print nor when it was done. I found it through Google images and there was no information. It has little to do with the post, though there's JFK, so it's got a political feeling to it, of course. My major desire for the image that accompanies this post is the desire to make up for yesterday's "Pinhead" photograph.

I've been wanting to put up an Obama sign, but I don't have a lawn. I live in an apartment, I guess I could stick it the window:)

My house looks like the campaign headquarters - lawn sign, cardboard signs in every window, bumper stickers on both cars, buttons on every jacket and bag ...

Sadly, I couldn't find the campaign headquarters in Belfast last week. They moved! So, I got my sign (one button and two copies of "We the People. . .") in Waterville. I was shocked that the person working there was most unfriendly. If I was a late decider, I would have been put off. Well, I was put off, but it doesn't affect my vote!
