But in this case, the sign theif was a McPalin supporter, because they also spray painted many of the other Obama signs in the neighborhood.
To retailiate against this idiot (not sure if they are an idiot for stealing a sign at 2am or for supporting McCain) they put up their own sign. This is really great!
A quote from their blog:
Someone stole our Obama for President sign from our yard last night. They stole nearly all the Obama signs in our neighborhood. The ones they didn't take they spray-painted black. So I made this sign today and staked it in the yard. I fully expect it to be trashed by morning. At least they know the result of their pranks: we give more money to Obama's campaign.
