We Have a Winner !

Wow! While I'm surprised at the huge response, I'm not at all surprised at the many excellent entries. And some of you with MULTIPLE entries. My hat's off to all of you.

After much hand-wringing and after leaving the lot of you hanging on the edges of your seats all weekend, the judges are happy to tell me that they have selected a winner.....

(Drum roll)

And the winner is...

SNAVE with "We're a country, not a church"

Congratulations, Snave. Take a bow.

But wait, ladies and gentlemen,there's more...

As I predicted, there were far too many entries to limit the sign painting to just one. That's right, folks. In upcoming posts of PTCruiser, you'll also be seeing these fine slogans on bay area freeways...

mdhatter with "This is why you need to vote"

u.s.s.r. funk with "Putin '08"

D.K. Raed with "War Dead = Lives per Gallon"

Dada with "Global Warring...it's real"

Fuzz with "ALL HAT, NO PRESIDENT"

Lew Scannon with "Impeach Bush & Cheney, because lynchings are illegal"

A big thank you to everyone for participating. I hope all of you had as much fun with it as I did.

Looks like I better get to work on making signs. Someone has something BIG planned.

Mauritania coup violence calms
Last Updated: Monday, June 9, 2003 | 5:19 PM ET
CBC News
Gunfire subsided in Mauritania's capital Sunday, but it's not clear if the pro-Western government or rebels trying to overthrow it control the city.

Islamic rebels launched a coup attempt against the government early Sunday following a crackdown on Islamic activists. Members of the army and navy were reportedly among the rebels.

News agencies reported armed clashes and tank fire near the presidential palace in the capital city of Nouakchott.




Rebel forces claimed they captured the palace, along with other key buildings, but the government denied the report.

The location of President Maaouya Sid'Ahmed Ould Taya is not known. Officials say he is running the government from a secure location.

Mauritania is a Sahara desert nation of 2.8 million in northwest Africa. It describes itself as an Islamic republic. It has elections, but many observers consider it to essentially be a one-party state.

During the Iraq war, the government tried to crack down on Islamic militants, including arresting leaders who were attempting to use mosques to recruit fighters to help the Iraqi side.

Uh oh... looks like someone needs to enable comments moderation for awhile... the "desk jockey" who's too afraid to serve in Iraq has found you.

Q: Why don't liberals join the military?
A: Because they know in their hearts that the war is illegal, the president is a war criminal and the war effort is harming our nation.

Q: Why don't conservatives join the military?
A: Because they're pussies.

I wouldn't mind if he just wanted to debate, but 60 comments in 15 minutes isn't a debate, it's spam.

Got a bunch of "BUSH LIED" signs drying in the yard and I'm off work tomorrow so I'll be hitting the overpasses all day tomorrow.

I did have fun. You are an inspiration! In fact, I just thought of another one:
Democracy USA = 25% Rule
(or USA Democracy = Rule by 25%, I can't figure out which is more understandable).

I live in a town with 2 fwy overpasses. They are usually pristine, except for the occasional "welcome home 222th" or "happy birthday, sister johnson". Even those are removed within hrs. Plus stoning is still the recommended punishment for certain crimes. Utah is under Sharia law (hey, that gives me an idea for a purely local sign). ~~ D.K.

My brother and I hung one sign going from Moorhead MN, to Fargo ND. It lasted for from 4 in the morning until close to noon. I didn't get a picture though
