This is Terry Reed’s way of protesting presidential candidate Barack Obama. Mr. Reed who owns a construction and excavation company decided to park a trailer load of manure across the street from Whitehall’s Democratic campaign office on Saturday.
He also posted a sign in the manure mocking Obama’s “change we can believe in” slogan as “a load of crap.” “I think Obama’s plan is just one big old poop sandwich and we’re all going to have to take a bite,” he said.
Suzanne Molyneaux, the Obama campaign’s election team leader in Whitehall, said traffic came to a near standstill as people stopped to take pictures of the trailer.
Mr. Reed will not move the trailer until after the election is over. Suzanne is very upset by this and rightly so.
“People in Whitehall were upset, they were outraged,” she said. “I don’t think Whitehall should be represented as this podunk, ignorant community. There are lots of good people here.”
His parting remark, “My only regret is that I didn’t do something sooner.” I think he could have found a more constructive way to protest. OMG, how disgusting!
Something I thought about after I posted this; I’m surprised this doesn’t violate some Health and Safety codes in that city.. It has been sitting there since Saturday!
