BAREFOOT BAY -- A sign in one man's front yard has stirred up a controversy in his community.
Neighbors of Andy Lacasse said the sign, which reads "Obama Half-Breed Muslin [sic]," breaches the fine line between free speech and inappropriateness.
"I got nothing good to say about Obama," Lacasse told News 13. "If I see anybody touching that sign, I got a club sitting right over there."
Lacasse put the sign on his lawn Saturday. A Korean War veteran, he said he was a registered Democrat until Obama won the nomination.
I am non-plussed by the content of the sign.
If he's upset that Obama is (allegedly) a Muslim, then he's misspelled the word.
I wonder how half-breed muslin breathes? And if it is machine washable? Full muslin is comfortable, but the wrinkles are a bear. So half-breed muslin is the fabric of choice for the politician on the go...
I'm an optimist like that.
