I am now personally a victim of Republican dirty tricks.
I put this sign up on Friday, October 3, 2008.
When I went out to get my morning (10/6/08) newspaper I found this sign up in my front yard.
In a small, rectangular box on the middle bottom of the McCain-Palin sign it says, "Paid for by John McCain 2008." So I know who the culprit is--and they did it during the dead of night.
I called the police and an officer responded. He told me that that part of my lawn is county property so there was nothing he could do about it. Last time I looked, my neighborhood has 8 or 9 McCain-Palin signs, so according to the officer who responded those are fair game for vandals.
Whenever I see a McCain-Palin sign from now on, I will not hold it against the person upon whose lawn it stands. They may simply have been a victim of Republican dirty tricks too.
