Yard sign primary update: The presidentials

When last I checked, I found a lot of yard signs on my neighbors’ lawns, but almost none of them were for Presidential candidates. Two weeks and a crapload of early voting later, that’s no longer the casae. I took another spin around the neighborhood over the weekend, and counted 22 signs for Barack Obama, five for Hillary Clinton, and four for Ron Paul. Nobody that I could see was publicly supporting John McCain or Mike Huckabee. I don’t find that surprising in the least.

Which is not to say there wasn’t any evidence of interest in the Republican primary. It’s just that what interest I did see was, Ron Paul aside, all in the local elections. I counted five Kelly Siegler signs, four Jim Leitner signs, and two for Charles Bacarisse. I also saw one for CD18 hopeful John Faulk, but it shared a yard with a Jessica Farrar sign, so like that Bacarisse/Farrar combo I saw before, it’s either a sign of confusion or of a mixed marriage. Still, the strangest combination I’ve seen is a yard that features a Farrar sign, a Dan Patrick sign (!), and an upside-down Bush/Cheney 04 sign. There’s a message in there somewhere, but I’ll be darned if I can figure out what it is.

Speaking of mixed messages, two of the Hillary signs I saw were accompanied by Obama signs. That too may signify a divided household, or it may be a way of saying “They’re both fine by me!” Much as I appreciate that last sentiment, I still find that to be an odd way of expressing it. You can only choose one at the voting booth, after all.

Finally, after a slow start, JP Dale Gorczynski is now fairly well represented in the area. Not quite as well as Harold Landreneau, but Gorczynski’s presence is definitely felt.

    I attended an Oscar party and met a couple from a divided household. One preferred Hillary and the other Obama, so they have both signs in their front yard.

    The bickering was cute to watch.
