I wonder if blacks, Irishpersons, and dogs are allowed: The owner of a parking lot in Gibsonville, NC, says that if you have a pro-Barack Obama sticker on your car, you aren’t welcome to park there. He says it’s a joke, but many people aren’t laughing.
WFMY reports Tim Henderson, who owns a parking lot in Gibsonville, N.C., “put up ‘no parking’ signs targeting Barack Obama supporters.”
The lot owner tells WFMY that his message is clear: He’s posted two signs discouraging Obama supporters or those in cars with Obama stickers displayed on them from parking there.
“I don’t know how many ways you can interpret it. If you’re an Obama supporter, you’ve got an Obama sticker on your car, you’re not welcome to park here,” Henderson told the Greensboro CBS affiliate station.
Henderson, a backer of Republican candidate John McCain, contends he wouldn’t actually tow parked Obama supporters out of his lot, he’s just injecting humor into the presidential race with his parking lot politics.
It’s caused something of a local stir — but Henderson insists the signs will stay up through the November 4 general election and that those who are rubbed the wrong way can “stay offended or get over it”.

Hmmm. Is this McCain/Palin supporter a total tool? You betcha.
He says he won’t tow. I say there is a direct action just waiting to be taken. I call on all pro-Obama folks in the Greensboro and Gibsonville areas to sticker up their cars and fill that so-and-so’s lot. Call that humor too.
