(Newser) – It must be election crunch time:

  • Obama: His campaign has added an exclamation point on signs and banners to make it a slogan of "Forward!" notes the New York Times. "It reflects the energy out there," says the campaign's Stephanie Cutter. The slogan previously had a perplexing period on "Forward."

  • Romney: A 30-year-old supporter in Indiana got $15,000 on eBay to tattoo the Romney campaign's "R" logo on the side of his face, reports ABC News. Eric Hartsburg, who is not disclosing the anonymous bidder, says he wants to show young people that "it's OK to be a Republican."

OBAMA ordered White House sign removed? . till after the election? ..... the sign read, "White House Help Wanted" ... "Intelligent people need not apply... LOOKING for morons, idiots, and imbeciles" ... for the Team Obama Intelligence Services .. and will consider the dumb and stupid, and minorities....... When questioned if there was any-other requirements they replied, "No intelligence is required, in Obama's Intelligence Services" and that Team Obama will train you with bananas..... BANANAS? ....... Oh, they use bananas to show Democrats the way "FORWARD"

This is one sign that campaign analysis is getting un-serious.
