About a month ago I put an Obama campaign sign at the end of my driveway. I live in Connecticut, so I didn't expect anything to come of this. But, my sign disappeared after about a week. So, I went online, and I ordered 5 more. You know, to prepare for more disappearances and to qualify for the first quantity discount tier.
Feeling bold, I put two signs at the end of my driveway. A week later, they were gone as well. That was last Friday (before Labor Day). I was angry enough to report it to the police. They took my information, and were very professional. They treated me as if my complaint was legit - not just being an annoyance to them. I mean, I don't expect them to recover my stolen property, nor do I expect them to find the culprit(s) really. But I wanted it on record that this had happened, and I didn't like it. After the officer left, I put up a new sign (just one this time).
This morning, I saw this scene at the end of my driveway:

Another call to the police. Another cordial visit from the local police. Another new Obama sign now stands at the end of my driveway.

Joe Biden nailed it when he talked about the craptacular mass of mediocre quips as distractions that the GOP has resorted to in order to avoid the real problems that the incompetent GOP has created:
