Of course, I’m talking about campaign signs.
It’s that time of years — small signs and large signs are popping up in yards and on fences around Fairfax County. At least one County-wide candidate has succeeded in putting up large signs in notable locations. Yes, he’s a man.
My female friend seems to think that putting up large 4×8 signs shows a certain … shall we say … inadequacy.
Au contraire! Having spent every candidacy posting up large “Chap!” signs (30 in our last election cycle) from Burke to Dranesville, it’s a tremendous way to break through and communicate with low-intensity voters who won’t read a mail piece but will notice a colorful billboard.
More importantly, it looks cool. And it intimidates your opponent.
So who’s inadequate now?!
