Seven Stolen Signs

Our poor neighbors have had seven Kerry-Edwards signs stolen out of their front yard so far. They’re not giving up, though. This morning when I walked the kids by their house, they had two new signs proudly planted. They also had this somewhat incoherent sign posted front and center.

Apparently the thefts around the corner are not isolated incidents. Just the other night, a vigilant neighbor caught four students from nearby Cornerstone University with a couple dozen Kerry signs in the back of an SUV. And the Kerry-Edwards headquarters here in Grand Rapids says they’ve received complaints from more than 2,000 people who claim that their signs have been stolen.

My question is: Why wouldn’t Republicans resort to sign stealing? After all, it accurately reflects the “ends justify the means” mentality that the Bush administration has been modeling these past four years.

    Our three proudly displayed, artistically spaced, and unique to our neighborhood Kerry signs were spirited away Thursday night. No rest for the wicked, I guess. Replacements won’t be available until next week, but we’ll be first in line.

    Which makes me wonder whether anyone has ever even seen a Nader sign, much less stolen one.
