Not Gonna Happen

Filed in Delaware by on October 26, 2012

I just got a press release from DelDOT that has a lot of good information about storm prep, including road projects that have been postponed due to the impending conflagration (95 @202 will NOT be closed this weekend).

Among the suggestions for storm safety was this gem:

DelDOT is requesting that political campaigns do what they can to remove political signs along state roadways prior to the arrival of the storm; especially large signs that may become airborne

Good luck with that.  Nonetheless, for those of you that have control of signage, please take heed.  The last thing that you want is a front-page picture of your plywood campaign sign sticking out of the chest of a dead motorist.

    LOL! Those damn signs.

    Worst case scenario is the Sussex voters seeing the New Castle County version of the Ben Mobley sign sticking out of a voter on the front page.

  3. puck says:

    The press release didn’t say candidates had to take down their OWN signs.

  4. Paula says:

    Good one, Puck!

    I’d pick up Pires signs but nobody has that much time.

    i can think of no better commentary on our political system than a destructive campaign-sign-tornado.

    I’m sure Keith Spanarelli has Pires’ sign removal covered – since he’s being paid to be a “literature and sign consultant”…

    “a destructive campaign-sign-tornado.”

    I can only imagine a bunch of Munchkins standing around quizzically looking at a large pile of photographs of Sher Valenzuela, with Christine O’Donnell’s shoes poking out from underneath.

    I think they should move up the Punkin Chunk to coincide with the storm. I’ll bet someone could top a mile with the wind at his back.

    ain’t no hurricane gonna stop me from running around Wilmington in a shark costume this weekend.

  11. AQC says:

    Mike Barbieri is out taking his signs down right now.

    Puck, that is hilarious.

    “Conflagration: a destructive fire, usually an extensive one.”

    OH SUGAR! Is Sandy a maelstrom of burning gulf oil rigs, about to rain down on Delmarva?
