Nobody Died

I found this quirky little protest site, “Nobody Died When Cinton Lied,” on Blogdex this morning. Apparently, this slogan has been spotted lately along the freeways in Orange County, California. The site collects descriptions and photographs of signs protesting the war in Iraq and Bush’s use of deceptive language to stir support for the war. It’s an interesting form of protest and the signs themsleves are quite compelling, as the author suggests.

Still, I wonder how these protests work as anti-war rhetoric; given the divisiveness that Clinton’s name inspires, and the fact that viewers of these signs are stuck in Los Angeles gridlock traffic, I’m not sure that they’re going to change a lot of minds. Then again, maybe that’s not the point.
