Wow, Obama now has a town named after him, don’t blink or you will miss it…
Motorists entering the quaint, woodsy town of Olema near the sea in Marin County may notice a subtle change as they enter: it appears the burg’s name has been changed to ”Obama.”
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama supporter and bed and breakfast owner Kelly Emery created a perfect mirror of the green sign people read as they enter the town’s limits.
Now people unfamiliar with the area may think they are entering the town of Obama, population: 55.
Emery’s sign has created little fuss in this politically liberal area, but the county said there are laws regulating such behavior.
Marin County senior planner Curtis Havel said county code allows for political signs on one’s residence or place of business not more than 45 days prior to an election.
