Election Day (Tell Me How You Really Feel)

Tomorrow, at least in this part of the world, is Election Day. I am a big fan, because it is a day off work, and that's always a reason to celebrate.

Usually, plenty of stronger emotions and a good deal of humor are wrapped up in the election of government officials. This year there are a couple of big issues that has everyone all worked up, but I haven't seen any really clever or outrageous campaign signs. So, in honor of Election Day, here are a few of my finds through the years:


From when I lived in East Tennessee


From vacation in Las Vegas, Nevada

Now with a name like Cotton in a state like Tennesee, you just have to take advantage. I made a special effort to get a picture of that sign. The second one I took from the car while waiting at a stoplight. Whoever posted these had no problem telling us how they really felt. I wanted to be able to blow the picture up to read the fine print, because the large print seemed bad enough! The sign says, among other things, "'Family friendly' assemblywoman will crush any child in her path"! Wonder how that election turned out ...

Hi Ash,
I think crushing children is a bit extreem, maybe a gentle squashing would be more appropriate.

Cheers Mark
Thanks for the link

Wow, that bottom sign is mud slinging at its finest. People and politics are strange bedfellows.

We have very little like this over here Ash, our local elections are boring, no one dishes the dirt and 'Labour' always win locally.
I like the 'Cotton' sign, some of the boards outside of churches have some good humour on show at times, I might start a collection of them.
Thanks for you visits over at my place.
