"Obama Bin Lyin" sign at McCain Rally

Okay something's not right about this. This was a sign at the McCain rally today. In fact a person right next to these people had one as well. Both signs colored in with the same type of marker and similar "font" style.

The thing is that campaign rallies like this dont allow you to bring in homemade signs like this. When you go to a rally, they actually hand out the "rally" signs (official ones) and "homemade" ones that people make or are cleared that people have brought to the event and then are re-handed out to people near the front.

So one of three things happened here. Either these people snuck this sign in (which is doubtful since there are no signs of folds or bends). Or someone brought this, it was taken and screened at the door and re-handed out. Or the McCain Advance Team made this sign (which both sides do) and handed back out to the crowd.

Given the first option is the least least likely that only leaves the other two.


  1. I think that sign is kinda clever and funny. So it sounds like Osama Bin Laden, which is almost a household name. Why aren't you talking about the people shouting cut his head off or kill him at one of McCain's recent stops? Isn't that a lot more inflammatory?

    Hell, Obama said we were going to be making fun of his name, I think we're way pass due on fulfilling that prophecy anyway. : )

  2. Man I'm starting to become a backseat blogger aren't I? Backseat blogger cat iz camping ur cite waitin fur postz....

  3. As soon as I saw the camera locking hint at the bottom I knew it was going to be great! Hehehe

    Very cool, amazing what folks can do with Flash these days...

  4. Wow Joel I am honestly shocked by your "kinda clever and funny" comment.

    And by making fun of his name I dont think he implied this sort of concept.

  5. I'm just being honest. I'm not saying I would be dumb enough to hold a sign like that.

    In a day and age where it's acceptable for people to call the president a Nazi and wish the Vice President died and joke about him shooting someone in the face, I think that this isn't that big of a deal. People say dumb crap. People hold dumb signs.

    I'm more worried about the story where a public school teacher took her class to a field trip to watch her marry her lesbian lover. I don't know all the details, but that sounds insane.
