Romney Just Drove By Me - Thanks DU for Helping Me Make This Sign

Last edited Sat Aug 4, 2012, 03:56 AM - Edit history (1)

Romney and 12 GOP governors just passed me on the way to the local high school in Basalt, CO. for a campaign stop.
Hat tip to all the people in this thread: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021044216 who helped me with the words for this sign.

**NOTE: I retroactively fixed the spelling error on the sign.

I'm lucky.... I've got a good one. My little brother had one of the "let me validate your every inadequacy as bitchily as possible" variety. She was a hell of a housekeeper, though. (Translation: She got the house in the divorce.)

72. I've got a silly question.

How did you find out the route the caravan would take?

Morning local news announced he'll be coming to NC but the campaign did not disclose the locations and I'd really want to do something similar to what you've done but can't if I don't know where.

Hopefully will find out more as we approach Sunday but it'd be nice to know now so I can prepare.

Thanks.
