I recently received this photo along with the following:
Thank you for the fun you've provided me with. It reminds me of the fun I had watching your boy Clinton play "Find the Weenie" with the office help.
Seriously, does your hatred of Bush override your self interest in not being turned into radioactive glass by 10th Century thugs? Think about it.
By the way kiddies, all the signs I removed are ILLEGAL and a hazzard to the travelling public.
To which I responded thus:
"Dear Fellow Patriot,
I salute you for taking the time and effort to take down those signs. Tens, even hundreds of thousands probably saw them before you and wanted to take them down but just kept driving. Believe me, we have far more in common with each other than we do with those who may sympathize with us politically and yet do nothing.
I rarely get to chat with the people who take down my signs, so indulge me here a bit if you will.
Why was the Clinton impeachment "fun" for you? I saw it as something of a dark chapter in this nation's history, both in the original offense and even moreso in its prosecution. Granted, it took someone like Clinton to do what he did in the Oval Office, but it took folks like the House Managers, and assumedly you, to make sure everyone in the world knew about it. In certain respects, the impeachment was more harmful to this nation than September 11th: at least then we were being attacked by our enemies.
Not being turned into glass is precisely why I'm doing what I'm doing. Your side needs to do a better job of convincing the rest of the world that the U.S. occupation of Iraq is an appropriate response to the events of September 11th. Even just finding some WMDs would help... hell, plant them if you have to. As it stands now though all we're doing is making enemies, and until you find a way of securing our borders entirely, more enemies is not something we can afford.
You're right when you say the signs are illegal... in North Korea. If political dissent really bothers you I suggest you move there. As for their presenting a "hazzard", anyone who can't simultaneously operate an automobile and read the word "Impeach" shouldn't be behind the wheel anyway.
The signs knew when they went out there that they were on a suicide mission. Do whatever you want with them: they'll never talk.
Yours Truly, The-Guy-Putting-Up-The-Signs"
