Sign of Hopelessness

Sign of Hopelessness

Anti-Obama Yard Sign

BAREFOOT BAY — A sign in one man’s front yard has stirred up a controversy in his community.

Neighbors of Andy Lacasse said the sign, which reads “Obama Half-Breed Muslin [sic],” breaches the fine line between free speech and inappropriateness.

“I got nothing good to say about Obama,” Lacasse told News 13. “If I see anybody touching that sign, I got a club sitting right over there.”

Lacasse put the sign on his lawn Saturday. A Korean War veteran, he said he was a registered Democrat until Obama won the nomination.

I am non-plussed by the content of the sign.

If he’s upset that Obama is (allegedly) a Muslim, then he’s misspelled the word.

My theory is that he is actually concerned by the fabric Obama is wearing in this photo:

I wonder how half-breed muslin breathes? And if it is machine washable? Full muslin is comfortable, but the wrinkles are a bear. So half-breed muslin is the fabric of choice for the politician on the go…

I’m an optimist like that.
