Bored by the same-old-same-old political signs? Then you have to give some credit to Rep. Sonda Erickson, whose billboard was captured on the little screen by MPR’s Tom Weber yesterday.
Just for the heck of it, I looked at a satellite image of Erickson’s neighborhood. I’m thinking there might be some environmental reasons for not drilling there.
If you see a really creative approach to political advertising, send it to me.
