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.
