Do Liberals Have a Sense of Humor?

Bud Gregg, a State Farm Agent in Mandeville, La. doesn't like Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama. In fact, Bud dislikes Obama enough to have a sign erected over his office sign signaling his displeasure with Obama.

Everyone that knows me knows I'm a conservative. I dropped (I didn't leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left me) my Republican Party affiliation in 2007 when I decided to run for Lafourche Parish Council and a general overall bad taste for the Louisiana Republican Party (someone please get rid of Roger Villere).

Anyway, I also run an email discussion list for and about St. Bernard Parish, which is a conservative area, much like Mandeville. One of my subscribers is a client of Bud Gregg and took pictures of the front and back, and emailed them to me so that I could forward to my email list.

Since photos of the sign have started floating around through email, there has been a lot of uproar. And, it has fallen exactly as you would expect. Conservatives find it funny as all get out and liberals are branding it as hate-speak.

Now, liberals don't mind making fun of President George Bush or Republican hopeful John McCain, so what's the problem with poking a little fun at Obama? Absolutely nothing was said about him personally, only his policies.

By the way, Bud did take the sign down. Seems his wife is a school teacher and the members of the local teachers union were not appreciative of his sign. Bud does have plans to rent a billboard near-by with the same message.

Bud has acknowledged that this is not an accurate quote from Barack Obama. He will correct it with this:

OBAMA SAYS LET'S TALK NICE WITH OUR ENEMIES. YEAH RIGHT, GO ASK THE FRENCH AND BRITISH HOW WELL THAT WORKED WITH HITLER....THEY WOULD LOVE TO BUY TIME.
