National Shortage of Pro-Obama Yard Signs

A few McCain yard signs have sprung up in the neighborhood, so I though I would retaliate. But it's not so simple.

Either the Obama people are having supply problems, or an awful lot of people were impressed with the Senator's performance in last night's debate.

Here's a closer look at the key part:

It's especially impressive in that it seems you have to pay for them — in past campaigns down here they've been giving the signs away.

    That’s pretty interesting, because those things are *all* over the place up here (Finger Lakes, NY State), with some houses festooned with the things. And they are showing up in places that you would not really expect to see them, for example farming communities like Scipioville. I guess the answer (or a partial answer) is that NY is hogging the Obama yard signs.

    There also seems to be a dearth of bumper stickers — we started trying to order from the campaign last December, and didn’t get ours until March. Surprisingly, driving 160 miles between Manhattan and NW Connecticut each weekend there are very few Obama stickers to be seen. And but a single McCain sticker spotted!

    Is this great American tradition ending?

  3. Make your own: http://www.barackobama.com/downloads/ , with a choice of 3 images. But the first comment has it: neither campaign thinks yard signs matter at all. They would make more sense for a fringe candidate because finding another Barrite say in your street isn’t easy.

    My Obama signs are stolen as fast as I put them out yet my street is lined with McCain signs. I guess cheating is just a Republican thing.

    Wonder why there is a shortage of Obama lawns signs? I answer that question in a column I wrote this week for the Minneapolis Star Tribune. See reprint on my blog:

  6. I woke up this morning to find my Obama lawn signs (2) missing. It is distrubing to me that people would come on my property and take something. I am also bothered that it takes a very long time for orders of yard signs to be shipped. I believe, without a doubt, that the thief is a McCain supporter, however I sure that McCain does not support such behaviors. As for Palin, I think she would say all is fair in politics.
