Being from the same neck of the woods, I saw one of those signs and thought, really? Did I read that right? I had to watch the next time I went by. We had a Strange Sheriff in one place I lived. No, I mean a Sheriff Strange.

We all must keep in mind the real origins of the word "politics". It's from the Greek, "poly" meaning many and "tics" meaning blood sucking insects.

Any name that uses a diminutive for a first name, in my opinion, reduces the magnitude of the person's image, no matter what great of a person he might be... Jimmy, Willie or Ricky, may sound with a familiar ring, but always end uf reducing their statue specially with a weak last name like Fox, Gray, Conk. Few that I read locally. No terribly funny, but I think many could use a name change to improve thier prospectes, LoL

I recognize the Schmuck sign from here in Chandler. But hey, we have a congressman named Flake, so if a flake can get elected, why not a schmuck? :)
