This is what happens when you backtrack on your vote

You piss people off:

Shame on you, Senator Cloutier (see also here), and shame on the other senators who switched their votes when it came time to override Governor Minner's veto of the eminent domain bill.

This was hung up on Foulk Rd. in north Wilmington sometime around mid-day today. An e-mail about the banner tipped off WDEL's Rick Jensen, who then asked someone to call in and confirm this banner was indeed there. Since I was about to head out on some errands in that area, I decided to swing down Foulk Rd. and check. There it was, between Wally's Shell station and the entrance to Brandywood. I called Rick to let him know, and he was appreciative.

By the way, Rick and I chatted for about five minutes before I went on the air with the info, asking me if I was the Hube from that certain old "Cube" blog. "Indeed I am," I replied. But he informed me he checked out my (our) "new blog" Colossus fairly often, to which I replied I was (we were) much appreciative. He also dug the backstory behind our blog's name! (Ask him; state secret!)

Cool, glad you got there first and was able to conform on the air. Someone phoned me about it yesterday, but I couldn't leave to take my photo of it until this evening.

I wonder if the Senator has seen it.

Saw the banner today on my way to work after hearing Hube on WDEL. I am trying to figure out how to similarly call out my "senator," Harris McDowell. I called the senator as I drove by the Cloutier sign, but got the answering machine. I wonder when (if?) he will return the call.

Thank you for posting this picture on your site. I am the Delaware homeowner that hung this sign in my back yard. I would like to say to Senator Cloutier that I am disgusted with your recent vote on SB 245 and lack of respect for my private property rights. I look forward to holding your feet to fire when 2010 is here.

Jim, any response from Cloutier at all? Does she even give a shit?

Where is the picture???

What browser are you using, Paul? If it's Internet Explorer 7.0, that's probably why. Nevertheless, the picture is there. I'm using the Firefox 3.0 browser.

I have put together a new web page for anyone interested. It is a follow up to the Banner which I have hanging on Foulk Road. www.deflipflop.com
