Homemade Hillary

The number of political lawn signs in St. Paul this fall is definitely lower than in the past.

One recent Star Tribune letter writer said she's going without because her car was vandalized in 2012 just after she put up a Romney sign. So that was a vote for fear.

I tend to think it's because people hate this election — not only for its agent orange provocateur but just for the sheer length of it — so much that they don't want to be associated with it. Which doesn't mean they don't have an opinion on the candidates, or don't plan to vote, though.

But at least one household in my neighborhood cares enough to have made their own sign for Hillary:

It took me a few trips past this yard to notice it in all its subtlety. So I'm not sure it's effective as signage, but as's nice.
