Fun With Wingnuts

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign... here are some of the fun and not so fun signs from the people who came out today to protest their tax cut. Most of these are from GR, there area a few from Lansing mixed in.

ACORN is a big hit. "I Beseech to Impeach" comes straight out of the McCotter Fan Club, I bet. Abortion is OK, in one instance. Socialism was everyone's mind, and on a lot of the signs. I took the picture of the Beck sign thinking, "I'll have to read this when I get home". You'll see, although you might have to pause the slideshow at that point. "I Teabagged Obama" was... um... interesting, but I think my favorite is "Kiss My Tax Credit". Made me laugh. And I'm not sure how that picture of today's GR Press slipped in there...

I do have one picture that shows extreme violence being done to two Democratic officials from Michigan. I've been going back and forth all day on whether to publish it or not. Part of me wants to, just to shed light on some of the violent imagery and rhetoric that is coming out of a certain faction of people on the right, but another part of me says, "don't feed teh crazy". It's pretty bad.

In the end, I decided against it. Most of these signs are kind of funny; let's stick with that.

For now.
