Looks like Republicans are learning a trick from the Democrats,

The tires of transport vans at Republican headquarters in Wisconsin, were slashed
by Democrats in the 2004 election.

Also in 2004, young Democrats were caught throwing molotov cocktails
at the Republican headquarters in Raleigh

Obvious questions never asked by ACT.

1) Any physical evidence, bloody shoe print, bloody hand print, or possibly fingerprints on the Obama signs?

2) What condition was the bear in? How long had it been dead and was there anything salvagable from the carcass? Send it to a butcher for the meat and tan the hide to be sold by the school as part of a fundraiser. No reason to allow mean spirited people to ever think they got the better of you.

I hope they find them and throw them in the dumpsters and put signs stapled with IDIOTS written on them.

And there is NO excuse in this at all.

Was Palin's husband Toddster in town? The stress of losing is getting to the Repugs, they've started killing animals that can't shoot back, typical Palin/Repug reaction.

I was thinking of dumping them in a trash compactor.

I cannot wait for people to find a reason to justify this.

What in the hell does a dead bear have to do with the election? Could those perverts not find another way to show their displeasure with the Democratic candidate for President? Perhaps they could have put the Obama posters on the brass catamount there at the turnaround. Or even better, why didn't they show up themselves? They took the coward's way out by killing an innocent animal and draping the posters on the body. I guess the message was intended to be something about kill or death. Chief Johnson needs to call in the FBI...this may have been a death threat against Obama. Or, more likely, it is the work of a bunch of drunken frat boys with too much time on their hands!

Another mindless person wanting attention, trying to impress his/her buddies. This kind of mind set seems to be widespread, across the country. God help us.

It could just as easily have been people trying to drum up support and sympathy for Obama. The fact is, unless you were involved, you don't know.

The only FACT you know is that a dead bear was found at WCU with Obama signs on its head. Let the investigators do their work and leave out the inflammatory accusations.

By fanning the flames you are giving the morons who did this exactly what they want.

I agree with your sentiment, but I don't understand the dumpster part. Wouldn't you want people to see them? Put them in the same roundabout near the statue where the bear was found.

I heard they found a bloody glove and stocking cap. Live on WLOS are the perps traveling on 107 outside Sylva in a white bronco.

Unlikely. Supporters of Obama think meat comes from the grocery store.

I doubt many could kill a black bear with a glock held on its side - one in each hand.

I suspect the country boys had one too many last night and decided to have a good time. Probably no harm intended, just stupidity.
