Roadside billboards, Jesse Ventura was governor, Al Franken a Senator, and their new baseball stadium is next to a garbage dump.
Way to be, Minnesota.

Do you think it is? Reagan is dead. That can't be real. Can it?

They have a strong libertarian component up there. Ron Paul did better in that state than he did in NH. In fact that state had one of the better outcomes for him @ 15.69% of the vote. That was even with the MN GOP refusing to let him speak at their convention. As a result Romney only got a plurality of the vote and no majority.

Text at least looks photoshopped; way too uniform color wise and sharp.

Good observation. Still it's cool satire.

Or there just might not be a billboard like that at all, and someone invented it on a computer so morons like you would post it on forums like this.

How many morons does it take to agree on something until it's a fact?

Ask the house democratic leaders. They need agreement. They surely have the moron element in tow.

Questions have been raised about whether the photograph of the billboard was photoshopped, in part because the text is so clear and crisp when contrasted with the rest of the image. The small text in the center of the wooden portion of the sign, just below the black outline of the main billboard, for example, is unreadable, even as the rest of the billboard is extremely clear.
One possible explanation, since the billboard does seem to exist, is that the photograph was at some point touched up for clarity.

Wasn't Minnesota the only state that didn't vote for Reagan in '84?

Yeah, I think so. But it still has a strong libertarian movement there.
