Sign War



Well, over at the Ashdown campaign, all of their signs in the Salt Lake Foothills area have disappeared including a 10 foot banner that was zip-tied to a brick wall. All of the signs, including the banner, were on private property.

I can only imagine how frustrating that would be to someone on a budget as limited as the Ashdown campaigns is.

You would expect more out of people who are hitting the pavement for a guy with as upstanding family values as Orrin Hatch.

You would expect, however, this sort of behavior out of high school students though. In fact, when I was a junior in high school, I worked with the schools Young Democrats club stumping for Bill Orton. On the day of the election, we drove around the city replacing Chris Cannon signs with Bill Orton signs. It didn’t do much good to change anyone’s minds, Orton lost anyway, and it was a pretty juvenile thing to do, but hey, we were juveniles.

The Ashdown camp is also offering a reward for pictures of people stealing his signs.

I need to get a couple of Ashdown signs myself but I’m never in Salt Lake City during business hours to pick one up and I don’t have any type of online money bartering account to pay for one online. So, any of you that are in the Salt Lake area and manage to be near the Ashdown campaign headquarters, would you be so kind as to grab me a few signs and stickers? That would be awesome.

What the hell is wrong with the people who live in this state!? Do they think they're running their own country or something? Do they think the constitution doesn't apply here? Do they think their religion supercedes everything the founding of the nation stands for?

If you make it into town for the Bush rally on the 30th ( www.utahvoices.org ), you'll be in town during office hours (with any luck).
