Just saw my first 2020 campaign yard sign.


It was for, of all people, Andrew Yang. Let's see how long it takes someone to steal it, like they kept stealing my Hillary signs.

Just drove past a huge Buttigieg sign. (Liberal 'hood, so there'll be Bernie and Pocahontas signs soon).

Wanted to stop and add a line under the name showing how it's pronounced.

Sorry to see Hickenlooper drop out. I was hoping for a Hickelooper/ Buttigieg ticket. Slogan: "We're gonna need a bigger yard sign."

No yards here; people put campaign signs in their brownstone’s window. Harder to steal ‘em that way.

Saw my first one (Warren) on the walk back from the farmers’ market this morning.

I remember a pic that did the rounds in 2004 of somebody driving a pick up truck in a very liberal area with a sticker on the left side of the bonnet saying "RE-ELECT OUR PRESIDENT" and a sticker on the right side saying "JIMMY CARTER"

Well, he is eligible.

He'd be a massive improvement on what we have now, even at age 94: that's for sure.

I've seen two yard/window signs in my neighborhood so far, for...Gabbard and Klobuchar?!
Also saw a guy the other day with a Gillebrand T-shirt AND matching hat! He didn't seem to be passing out pamphlets or actively campaigning, just rockin' the Kirsten gear. But haven't seen anything yet for any of the...um, let's just say "real"...candidates.

I feel you. I like to put up a campaign sign for WHOEVER EVENTUALLY WINS. Don't want to be remembered for backing some loser.

Yeah, while the Democratic primary is still in flux, I want a sign for "Not Trump". That is really the only thing that would reflect my current candidate choice at the moment.

The first piece of campaign gear I saw was at a Monster Truck show in Grand Rapids, MI, back in March. It was a woman wearing a Kamala 2020 sweatshirt.

Just saw a car with a Tulsi bumper sticker on it yesterday, and when I passed it, I saw there was a large Tulsi magnet on the side too.

Have seen a few Joe bumper stickers too.

I saw a Warren 2020 sign a few weeks ago, and a friend of mine was wearing an "Episcopalians for Buttigieg" button.

I’ve got a Pete button on my backpack. I live in a high rise so I don’t have a yard to put a yard sign.

That's one way of describing him.

Last December I drove to Tempe, AZ, to say goodbye to my little brother (colon cancer), whose deathbed was at my sister’s double-wide.* The lot next door had a flagpole flying a [America-Hating Fuckstick] 2020 flag.**

*On the whole, the livability of the structure did a lot to dispel any stereotypes I may have once harbored about double-wides in general.

** The neighbor did not violate the flag code by flying the flag over the American flag, surprisingly enough. He simply saved himself a hard choice by not flying Old Glory at all.
