Here's your sign(s)

I was running errands today when I may have made a slight detour through a residential area to avoid some congestion on the main road. I think that’s illegal, so I also may not have done it. While I was gallivanting through the neighborhood, I came across a sight that is safe to say I have never seen before.


Are you ready for this?



What ever could it be?



In the front lawn of a particular house, neatly arranged, side by side, actually touching each other, sat an Obama Biden sign and a McCain Palin side. Say what? They were all cozy, hanging out in the front yard like best buds. I pondered stopping to capture it on my trusty camera phone, but figured the risk of injury and added wasted time wasn’t worth it. However, I have full intentions of returning to photograph it. I’ve spent the majority of the afternoon wondering how this was allowed to happen.

Perhaps the person has an alter-ego? I want McCain. No, I want Obama. McCain I said. Obama! So in an effort to stop a potential self-self fight, they put both signs in their yard.

It’s quite possible that, like me, they aren’t overly thrilled with either candidate. I am not sure what they are attempting to convey by taking the dual-sign approach. Just because you don’t like either doesn’t mean you can vote for both. Unfortunately, it's also not going to make any new candidates miraculously appear. Maybe they are hoping that somehow they will morph into one person? The McBama ticket?

Maybe they did it just to screw with people like me.

Hey - just checking in to see how you've been doing with your blog. Looks great! And you got into BlogHer! YAY!

Oh, that's totally something I would have photographed! Looking forward to seeing the actual pic.

My (incredibly boring) theory is that it's a couple, and one person supports each candidate. But I like the McBama idea. I might actually go for that, as long as I could hand-pick which qualities I wanted from each of them. If I left it up to chance, we could end up in deep doo-doo.

On the other hand...we already are in deep doo-doo and I don't have enough confidence in either candidate to feel good about one of them getting us out of it.

Oops, okay ...

Phae - thanks for checking in.

Beth - Don't go raining on my parade, LOL. Of course I thought of that, but it's not nearly as entertaining! However, even if it were true, I don't think I'd do that to my front yard ...

Does McBama serve Chicken Nuggets? I think they should bring back the Arch Deluxe.

I think that family were showing the ambivalence many of us are feeling. I think a t-shirt I saw sums up a good strategy, "Pray Vote Pray."
