Just got this in my inbox from a campaign volunteer:

I have just returned from helping a campaign I believe in most heartedly.

I was at a large well traveled intersection with another supporter, holding signs identifying the candidate and waving. I was standing there to not only identify the candidate but to also show support.

Everyone has the right to think and vote as they wish and not pay any attention to sign waivers but they should not go out of their way to splash those wavers. One dismisses those drivers who show their single digit IQ in their return waves but to intentionally gun through a puddle to throw water on someone is wrong.

Those individuals out there willing to support a candidate by sign waving, I applaud you, even if your candidate is not mine.
