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
Bush!

Semper Fi.

It's still Bush's fault.
If he hadn't had that evil Bush sign out there, this never would have happened.
Rev. Jackson will hear of this!

lol. That's pretty good.

Might be fake if it's a chain email.

So the guy locked the perp out of his own car? Normally, the power door locks don't lock with the door open so as to prevent an owner from accidentally locking himself out.

Then he went back inside for 40 minutes and the perp was still outside trying to figure out how to get back in to his vehicle?

Just bought a Honda that will let you do just that. Lock the door and then close it. Just don't be an idiot and leave the keys in it.

You can do it with a lot of cars with power locks, just flip the switch and then hold the handle up on the outside until you close the door, then let it go, and the door stays locked.

fake or not, it is a funny story...

Along the lines of democrat thinking, I want it to be true, therefore it is.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 3:33:11 AM EST
Great story.

This is still funny after seeing it posted about 4 times I also think it's funny how worked up people are getting about their stupid signs. It's like they have some religious value, or something.
Me, I sleep with mine every night, and make it bacon and eggs for breakfast before I set it out gently in the shade for a long day of converting those misguided Kerry voters.

Mine will not lock, even manually, with the door open but of course, not all cars are that way.

Easy, take the keys out of the ignition, dump them on the seat, lock the doors, and slam them shut.
