This is in reply to the letter written by Linda Cross, concerning the inappropriateness of a political sign found in our community.
I have just returned from a vacation in Maine and have not seen the sign nor have I made an effort to see it. Linda’s description is all that is needed to come to the same conclusion as she has.
Even though we are on opposite ends on the political spectrum, I too find it offensive to have the candidate of your choice being depicted in such a manner. I would also hope that Linda would concur with me, when I find it similarly offensive when the person of my choice, President Obama, is also vilified by suggestions that he is not a citizen or that he is a communist and not really an American. Or that women who advance their right to make choices about themselves not be called “sluts.”
In fact, we don’t have to go any further than our very own local Rush Limbaugh to find something just as offensive as the sign we both find in bad taste.
