Rather than substantively defend the whiny, wasteful and wrong-headed status quo that keeps South Carolina last in the nation in SAT scores and graduation rates, it would appear supporters of Democrat-in-hiding Bob "Status Quo" Staton have a different notion of elevating the public discourse:
Blacking out teeth and drawing Hitler moustaches on real Republican Karen Floyd's 4X8 signs.

Of course, knocking down or defacing signs is nothing new to some of the short-bus political goons backing Status Quo Staton's campaign. They practically made a living running over Mark Sanford signs with pick-up trucks back in 2002.
