Obama Mural Defaced Once Again, But You Cannot Kill It
Uh-oh, did we just put "Obama" and "kill" in the same line? We'll expect our Secret Service call any day now.
It should be used to such treatment, which has been going on pretty much since it went up. Usually the method of vandalism/statement-making has been a blob of white paint; this time it seems to be more of an attempt to portray the president as seeing the world through rose-colored glasses (or communist-red-colored glasses, of course, since he's a pinko, as everyone would know if they simply took the time to visit any of the thousands of Web sites that painstakingly explain how Marxists have pulled off the incredible secret plan to put one of their own in the White House).
Where were we? Oh yeah, not to worry -- while the mural is going away, the support isn't. Breakfast Klub owner Michael Davis tells Fox 26 a new design will go up, beginning at sundown tonight.
And the restaurant's Facebook page makes it clear they won't be intimidated.
Soon enough the replacement will be defaced, too, we're sure. Such is the state of political debate these days.
