A woman in Sarasota, FL who’s campaign yard signs were stolen, couldn’t figure out who would do such a thing. Until she receive a confessional post card (right, click for larger versions) from a neighbor admitting he’d stolen her signs for Democrat candidates .
Why? Cause according to the card, featuring contrasting images of Reagan and Obama:
My apologies for your Democrat yard signs, but I can explain. I live around the corner from you and when I see signs that support Democrats I fear for the safety of our neighborhood. When thieves drive through Sapphire Shores scoping out possible targets and see pro-Democrat yard signs they automatically assume that the subdivision is filled with retards and half-wits. The gangsters think it’s easy pickings because they already know that if a person votes Democrat they probably don’t have the sense to come in out of the rain, not to mention locking their doors or securing their valuables. It is common knowledge amongst burglars that Democrats are anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment so when they see campaign signs that promote Democrats they know the homeowners are not armed and therefore unable to protect themselves from attack.
It is signed “Bat Masterson” which is a character from an old NBC TV show from the 50’s.
