Obama Signs Stolen, Defaced with Swastikas

Ever hear of the "Bradley Effect?" Named after Tom Bradley, who lost a California gubernatorial race that polls said he should have won, it refers to an alleged tendency on the part of some voters to tell pollsters that they are undecided or likely to vote for a black candidate, and yet, on election day, vote for his/her white opponent.

Well, racism is alive and well in this election. Several Barack Obama campaign signs in Albuquerque, NM were spray painted with swastikas. And these were signs on private property, as well, in people's yards.

It's not the only incident around the country. National media hasn't made all that much of it, but local media has. Here's one in NC. Harford County, MD. Sacramento, CA. Glendale, CA.

I am disgusted by this. It just symbolizes hate. It seems my view of the human race is better than it should be. Will the "Bradley Effect" decide this election? It remains to be seen.
