What mystifies me is how they can still use that slogan now -- or even how anyone with enough money to pay for an advertising campaign like this can think that reminding people about "draining the swamp" will put Republicans in a positive light.

It's as if they live in an entirely different universe.

Maybe it's just trolling non-right-wingers? Trying to make sure we're angry enough to go vote, despite the obstacles many of us face? That seems plausible. I wish I'd been able to get a close enough shot to read the rest of the text; it seems to say something about who paid for the signs.

I saw a similar sign today on 15-501 Boulevard near I-40. It said "LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! VOTE CONSERVATIVE / REPUBLICAN", something like that.

...and, like, those guys have done nothing but let their voices be heard. We know full well all the absurd, fatuous, oblivious, harmful, and grossly inaccurate things they believe about reality. What else can they possibly do to make it any clearer how completely disconnected they are from any form of compassion or sensibility?

I'm sure someone will think of something for them to try.

It says "Debruhl for Sheriff / paid for by Christ".

...because Jesus was totally all about using money to influence politics. (...or maybe the sign is referring to Jesus's half-brother, Thurston Christ-Howell III.) Anyway, he seems nice.
