I’ve been noticing things lately around here. Things like a prepoderance of Scott Brown yard signs (running about three to one in favor of our favorite RINO). And more springing up every day; just last weekend a huge new sign went up in the empty lot right across from the grocery store. Huge. Highway billboard big. SCOTT BROWN. Hard to miss.
Also, in noticing the yard signs, I also noticed that with the Scott Brown signs there are also likely to be Romney/Ryan yard signs as well. In those yards that sport Warren signs, there are no Obama/Biden signs. None.
Most conservatives around here don’t usually tart up their cars with a myriad of political stickers, and for good reason. This is completely unlike the loony lefty types who seem to wear their emotions on their bumpers. But I have noticed a cautious number of Brown bumper stickers, again running two-to-one more than Warren stickers. But what’s really telling, in my estimation, is this:
Right; not only is there no Liz Warren sticker, there’s no Obama/Biden 2012 sticker.
While I’m not saying that Massachusetts is turning red, I do think it’s telling that this time around, those who couldn’t wait to embrace the hope and the change in 2008 aren’t even bothering to voice their support in the most socially ubiquitious way this time around.
And that’s enough for me, here in Massachusetts.
