       April 14, 2009

    One of the things I don't really miss about Madison are all of the liberal-leaning signs. I remember the house down the street from me that kept up their "War Is Not The Answer" sign for years. The last time I was back in town (post election), I checked on the house. I was all ready to call them out on their hypocrisy because I suspected that since a Democrat was in the Oval Office war suddenly would be a legitimate answer and they wouldn't have such a beef with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Well, to my old neighbor's credit, the sign was still there.

    The signs below, however, are long gone...

    All around my neighborhood, both the leaves and the ever-present Kerry/Edwards signs are falling. The liberals are as downcast as a typical November day in Wisconsin. And I'm so happy. I love that all the "Regime Change Begins at Home" and "War Is Not The Answer" sign people lost. I love that all the clever rhetoric in the world can't change the fact that their ideas were discounted by the majority of the American people.

    But, I don't expect Madison's liberals to just throw in the towel. Oh no, I expect them to come up with new, even more clever signs! In fact, some of them already have.

    I'm not sure what this sign is supposed to mean. Bush doesn't have a mandate in their house? In their yard? I don't think even the staunchest Republicans are claiming that. Although, if he did, I'm sure he'd insist they do some raking. Also note the oh-so-clever use of a dollar sign in Bush. Oh those intellectuals...

    It's nice to see that even local businesses are interested in alienating any customers that don't share their political beliefs. I'll remember this next time I'm looking for bike equipment. Note the use of "Allah". That shows that they are tolerant, you know.

    And look, some folks are already getting a head start on the 2008 campaign. They gotta make sure we stop Jeb and the evil Bush empire.

    This last one is my favorite. It's like they followed some lefty checklist: let's see, use of peace symbol-check, defacing the flag-check, use of irony in flying flag at half staff-check.

    So there you have it, mourning in Madison. Isn't it beautiful?
