Signs, signs, everywhere a sign.

Unlike Cook County (Chicago), DuPage County, which voted against Obama both times and is the spiritual home of the Illinois GOP, is flooded with campaign signs.

One thing of interest. Not one sign showed the party affiliation. Not one. Even the aired TV ads (which seem to last 45 minutes out of each hour) never mention the party to which their candidate belongs. The closest they come is by trying to tie a candidate to Mike Madigan, the long standing state house leader. On TV and radio, this has been the nastiest, most disgusting, and vile campaign I have ever experienced in my 58 solar orbits around this flat earth.

One sign did make me laugh. A yoga center asked, "Election Stressed?" "Get your FREE yoga here. Only $18 a session."

Free. uh huh.

According a a neighbor who is a voting judge this year, voter turnout was, is and appears to be one of the highest ever. I guess running an insane egotist for president might cause turnout to rise.
