Obamamania is suffering a serious backlash, folks. And we're not talking about all the hooplah surrounding The New Yorker cover, either.

Just drive through Janet Cleary's off-Fredericksburg neighborhood and you'll spot it. After you pass a few Obama supporters you'll notice Cleary's homemade sign. (We forgive her for the misspelling of Barack's name … or maybe it was intentionally? Whatev. The sign kicks major patriotic ass and I'm an Obama supporter, too.)

"I think he'll destroy America," Cleary said. "He'll make it a socialist, Marxist country." She added that he'll also raise taxes and destroy our military. Cleary's sign has been up since Fourth of July, but she plans on updating it as the election nears. Her neighbors don't mind, either. "They think it's cool," Cleary said.
