Obama lawn sign draws internet crowd

This has to be the most potent harbinger of the internet's lack of purpose that I have ever seen.

Live video chat by Ustream

An Oregon woman who wanted to let her neighbors know that she's endorsing Senator Barack Obama for president has had two Obama-Biden 08 yard signs stolen from her front lawn. So she made a third herself, and had her teenage son set up a live feed on in the hopes of protecting the sign and possibly catching any thieves.


At the time of writing, there are approximately 200 people watching the streaming video. There are 130 in the attached chatroom, a lot of whom are freaking out because a gnome in the garden was smashed. Several of them have changed their nicknames as a mark of respect.
