It’s so interesting to see all the creativity inspired by Obama. It’s one thing to slap a bumper sticker on the car or put a pre-fab sign in the yard, but I continue to see hand-made signs and various other inspired ways that people are showing their support. It’s very cool that people are so enthusiastic that they take the time to create something personal and unique. It gives me a lot of hope!
Here are a few signs that I’ve seen here in NC...
I wish I had a photo of this but I didn't have my camera with me this morning when I saw a guy driving a big white pick-up truck and hand-painted on the side was a message: "I am a white, 50 year old, hard-working, gun-owning man for Obama."
And here are links to some creative “campaign” sites:
