How did it happen? That’s the question some were asking as they showed up to work in a southern town where a 12 foot mural, showing the face of Ronald Reagan, got a make-over. During the night, someone painted a Hitler mustache on the Republican god. The mural covers the wall of the County Republican Party headquarters in downtown Cookeville, Tennessee. All that was left behind was a folding chair.
County chairman Curtis Shinsky expressed his dismay at the site when he arrived to work Monday morning;
“Ronald Reagan is really beloved by the Republican party, he’s our guy… I just think this is people who have it in for us. There’s a lot of folks who don’t like us being up here on the square because we really have a lot of visibility.
“They had to be pretty tall because that chair was not tall, just a regular folding chair.”
