A Bumper Crop: Creative Candidate Signs

The weekend before last I took my 1968 Datsun convertible out on a road trip through the country to attend a classic car show near Middleburg. It was instructive to leave behind the liberal bubble that is Washington and its close-in suburbs. You soon reach a point at which the Obama and McCain lawn signs draw even and from then on the balance starts tipping to the Republican candidate.

I figured the car show itself would be pretty apolitical, but I did notice one statement being made on the spare tire mounted on the back of a 1940s T-series MG:

It made me wonder what other modified messages are out there. Have you or a neighbor gotten creative with a presidential sign this campaign season? I'd love to see it. E-mail me anything interesting you've come across in your travels--any candidate, any race--and I'll post them for others to admire.

I have lived in Northern Virginia for the last six years, though my days are spent in the District, and have come to know that in some parts of Old Dominion, Arlington, for instance, might be described as the People's Republic.
Senator James Webb's book on the Scots-Irish, "Born Fighting," was illuminating, though he would not divide Virgina along the lines I mentioned.
