In ultra-liberal Austin, TX, McCain supporters have a problem with their lawn signs being vandalized. News Channel 8 reports:
The gate to Hili Geck's house was once flanked by three big John McCain signs.
Most others in her neighborhood have Obama signs. Voting records show Geck's precinct is 70 percent Democratic. Still, she's never felt unwelcomed until now.
Geck said she came home Monday to find her signs missing and her tires slashed.
"I'm not scared," she said. "I'm going to put my signs back because I think that's the most important thing we have in America."
I don't remember this kind of thing when I was growing up. I don't think it happened, did it, during the profound ideological clashes of the Johnson/Goldwater election or the Nixon/McGovern election? Yet, it's happening today in cities that promote themselves as being broad minded and hip. I guess it's part of the culture wars, the Blue/Red State divide
