Obama yard sign defaced w/ racial slur - McKinney

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/49127993/ns/local_news-dallas_fort_worth_tx/

Sometime, during the night, vandals stapled 2 handwritten poster boards on either side of the campaign sign.

On one side, they used a racial slur and made other derogatory comments. On the other side, they touted the Republican ticket as Christian, white and Anti-gay

1. Yep, it's really getting ugly here

In Rockwall County, just some 25 miles from McKinney. Have my I love Obamacare sticker on the minivan. No vandalism yet, but hard stares, honking cars, and a couple of flipped birds. It can be no fun in red hell.

6. More than a few Texans are apparently acting out like children

Their ex-President isn't even invited to the RNC and Romney's going down in flames even though big ole Texas is in the bank for him. Imagine how appalled these types are going to be when their own state goes purple. They might try growing up in the meantime. Nah.

10. You'll have to forgive this Texan for celebrating with childlike glee when that happens.

And even though I'm 47, I admit that I still have some growing up in the meantime. Heck with purple, I'd like to see this state blue!

11. Me too

People might forget there's a great Democratic Party tradition down there. It would be semi-terminal for the Republicans nationally if if it went blue. I only say "semi" because the stars never seem to align the way we'd like (something else would probably give somewhere...), but Blue Texas would be the closest thing to it for us.

9. It's crap like this

that keeps me from putting up a sign or bumper sticker on my car considering the extremely red area where I live. Things like this and worse have happened to several Democrats in my area.

This current Rep. party's pure hate for Democrats is sickening.
