Sight Gag: Breaking the Glass Ceiling

“Sight Gag” is our weekly nod to the ironic and carnivalesque in a vibrant democratic public culture.  We typically will not comment beyond offering an identifying label, leaving the images to “speak” for themselves as much as possible.  Of course, we invite you to comment … and to send us images that you think capture the carnival of contemporary democratic public culture.

    Claudia: That’s an amazing picture. I live in Indiana and drive through Martinsville three or four times a week on my way to Bloomington. My neighborhood is fairly Republican, but interesting I have more than a few neighbors sporting signs to promote Mitch Daniels (the Rep. incumbent for Gov) and Obama/Biden. I’ve never seen anything quite like it … at least not around here.
