I realize that the election isn’t even a week old but I’m curious as to why some people insist on keeping up their political lawn signs. I mean, absent the fact that you’re just too lazy to remove them, what’s the point?
I suppose for Obama supporters it is a way to celebrate their victory. But at what point does it just seem like gloating?
For McCain supporters it would seem to be a stubborn unwillingness to accept the inevitable, which is understandable, and ultimately kind of sad.
As for me, I took my Obama signs down the nigh to th election, once it started to get dark, even before the polls officially closed. I wanted to be able to hold onto them. I feared that should Obama win (remember, at the time, we still didn’t know yet) disgruntled McCain supporters might try to swipe them. They did it before, so…
I’ve stashed my Obama signs in my garage. Maybe they’ll be worth something some day. Who knows.
