Virginia has an annual event called Shad Planking, a gathering of politicians in Virginia to celebrate the beginning of their election season. A notable feature is the placement of a lot of signs at the entrance to the event. I myself admit seeing political signs on the streets and in yards really gets me into the spirit of the election season (kind of like "Go Sox!" on strip mall signs during the playoffs in October) but Terry McAuliffe may have took it a little too far. He is demonstrating that he has plenty of money with his "sign wars" but if this is how the money is being utilized I think there is a little problem. At least the Obama campaign put their earnings towards building their ground game in every state across the nation not on frivolousness.
