I got this in an e-mail. Haven't been able to verify it, but it's a good story.
From a retired Marine in the great State of Washington ....
Last Thursday I put out one of my Bush/Cheney signs in my front yard.
Between midnight and 3:00 a.m. someone stole it. On Friday night I put
out sign No. 2. Since I didn't have to get up early, I thought my dog and I
would "stake out" our sign. This time I put the sign a little closer to the
gate leading to my backyard. With my dog on an extra long leash, I
planted myself on a lawn chair and read "Unfit for Command" by flashlight
until about 1:00 a.m. Here comes the fun part . . . I noticed that the car
coming down the street was slowing down and pulling over to the curb
right next to my yard. Sure enough, he gets out of his car and heads
right for my sign. Just as he was about to uproot and desecrate it, I
opened my gate and let my dog make the initial introduction! As he ran
to hide behind the rear end of his car, I promptly moved to the driver-side
door, which was still open. It was a fairly nice car with power everything
and still running. While my dog continued to "introduce" herself, I rolled
up the window and hit the power door lock button. With that, I slammed
the door, grabbed my Bush sign and headed into the back yard.
And now for the "rest of the story." About 40 minutes later, I heard a
knock at the door. I opened the door to one of our city's finest . . . the
Vancouver Police Department. The officer asked me what was going on
and when I told him, he could not stop laughing! I followed him out to the
perp's car and stood there while he asked the guy a few more questions.
Upon learning that the guy lived a couple of streets down, I -- knowing
what was about to happen -- asked him, "Why do you have Oregon
plates on your car if you live just down the street (here in Vancouver,
Washington)?" Oregon has no sales tax, so often Washington residents
will buy and register cars in Oregon to avoid paying sales tax . . . it's a
crime and the fine is pretty stiff.
Here comes the best part. . . . The look on this guy's face told me he
knew he was about to get busted. When the officer asked for his license
and registration, the "Democrat" mumbled that his license was suspended.
Just for kicks and giggles I asked the officer if he smelled any alcohol
coming from the guy! The officer looked at me, smiled and promptly gave
him a field breathalyzer test. Guess what? You got it, he blew a .10,
legally drunk in the state of Washington.
DUI, illegal registration and the brand of "MORON," all 'cause he hates
