A Sign of the Times?
WILMINGTON, N.C. — As Sen. John McCain’s motorcade arrived for a rally at Cape Fear Community College, this sign, featuring a photo of Osama bin Laden in between photos of a cigarette-smoking Sen. Barack Obama and Thomas Wright, a former North Carolina state legislator who was convicted of fraud, was on display outside the venue:
As we exited the press bus, a young man wearing an Obama T-shirt took down the sign and laid it face down on the ground. It was among other signs, including one supporting Sen. Elizabeth Dole. I don’t know how long the sign was up, but lots of people were standing around, and it didn’t appear to be causing any sort of controversy — at least not enough to cause any McCain supporters to take it down.
