And no, I have no intention of narrowing down my location further. I have a kid, and we have two weeks to go in this election.
The wave of vandalism targeting supporters of presidential candidate John McCain isn’t just limited to South Carolina, as we experienced last weekend when thugs sprayed graffiti all over the York County GOP headquarters, nor is it limited to Republicans.
At some point during the wee hours of the morning, supporters of opponent Barack Obama attacked a private home in Prince George’s County, Md., defacing the house, an RV, a truck cover, and a two foot by eight foot yard sign. Apparently, the home owner was a registered Democrat and the local Obama fans were none to pleased with his decision to back McCain.
“I understand that in every election there are incidents where campaign signs on both sides are removed, torn down and defaced,” said Mykel Harris, Republican Central Committee Chair for Prince George’s County in a statement to the media. “But rarely do the perpetrators proceed to deface your home and personal property in your yard.”
Pictures at the link. Note the incoherence of the response to the McCain/Palin sign.Via Instapundit, and may I note in passing that I don’t seem to recall any of us doing anything to Colin Powell for his defection? Well, except for a bit of glowering and muttered “Took you long enough”s, of course.
PS: If you want me to stop pointing this out, then stop doing it. Or sit on your idiots that are doing it. Frankly, I have more use for them than I do the oh-so-concerned who would do anything to raise the tone of the election – except, of course, for confronting those on their own side who seek to lower it.
