As I’ve said before on this little blog, my husband and I are Democrats. That’s Democrats with a capital D, very liberal, very accepting of everyone. Except republicans. That was a joke. Some of my best relatives are republicans.

Our next-door neighbors started out with a small republican presidential sign in their front yard. It was a little close to our property line, but oh well, we thought, now we know who they are and where they stand.

Robert and I decided to fight back. He printed out a GIANT Obama O – it’s about 4′ in diameter. We’ve put it in our big window in our living room, so anyone who looks at our house will see this giant beautiful symbolic O. I love it. I’m o-for-it.

The next week, the neighbors added about 8 more signs to their front yard. Cluttered, littered with republican names.

Now, it’s on. I’m thinking we need a light-up neon Obama sign next. Or maybe giant rope-light O’s all over our lawn. Perhaps a giant Obama sign on our roof that can be read by airplanes. For every one republican sign they put up, I’m putting up 3 Obama signs. Escalation, here we come.

Have you registered to vote? The deadline is fast approaching! Make sure you are registered!

  1. This made me laugh out loud! We keep our political alliances to ourselves on this little block, but I know who my peeps are….we secretly talk about the R’s behind their backs 😉 I have been asking EVERYONE if they are registered to vote, though!


  2. Yo girl! And go Obama! We have had our yard sign out since the primaries – February for us up here in Minnesota. Now we have added our Al Franken sign! And recenlty donated to Planned Parenthood – in Palin’s name of course.
