Junior Republican A-holes

VTex and I had just come back from a fun envelope-stuffing party. We went on our nightly hour-long walk, and as we left the house we noticed a whole bunch of teenaged boys hanging out across the street. We both sensed they were up to no good, but we didn't heed our internal warnings. When we arrived home an hour later, our neighbor came running over to tell us the boys had been throwing pebbles at our cars. When we went to our cars we saw that they had also ripped off an Obama sticker from each of our vehicles. VTex marched over to the house where the boys had been hanging, and confronted the dad. All the boys came over and apologized, and that seemed to be the end of it. We woke up this morning, and that's when we discovered they had also taken our yard sign apart and stuffed it into one of our plant containers. We're really bummed, but the thing that brightened up our day is that we realized how lucky we are that we're not as ignorant and hateful as those from the other side. Whew! It's good to be a Democrat.

P.S. The sign is now repaired with duct tape! I view it as a kind of vision that Francis Scott Key had on that fateful night back in 1812!
