Got OBAMA sign?

listener took this photo in Maine

Somebody stole our Obama sign today. We paid $8 for it, too. What's more, somebody stole one of Daughter's Obama signs today too. Hubby (who is there helping with renovations) says she went right down to the local police station and reported it. I said, "Hey! I should do that! Where is ours?"

Hmmm...I guess we're a bit more rural than Daughter is.  What really makes me mad, though, is that under the official Obama sign was my original hand-made one, and they took that too.

So I am going to go work at the Dem office later this week and see if they have any left. (Doubtful.)  Failing that I may have to make another one.  (Hey Reed, got any left??)

Friday Open Thread

John Cleese on Sarah Palin:

"What fascinates me is: People watching her on television – can they not see that she's basically learned certain speeches? She does them very well, she's got a very good memory, but it's like a nice-looking parrot," Cleese told the website.

"Because the parrot speaks beautifully and kind of says "aw, shucks" every now and again, but doesn't really have any understanding of the meaning of the words it is producing, even though it's producing them very accurately."

Cleese added: "I mean, Monty Python could have written this. And I'm sorry, Michael Palin, to say you're not the funniest Palin any more, but you're not."

Actually, I think Cleese give parrots short shrift here...

Sunday Open Thread

I was watching a Nature program about puppies the other day. Winnie here was quite impressed by the sound quality.

"Where ARE those puppies? I can't see them, but I sure can hear them!"
