'Miss Me Yet?' Billboard With Photo Of Bush along I-35 near Wyoming, Minn.

It was late at night and I wasn't sure I'd seen the billboard correctly as I whizzed past it on I-35 in Wyoming last week on the way back from Wrenshall. But an e-mailer confirms I saw what I thought I saw.

It's beginning to sweep along the Internet, accompanied by various claims that it's a Photoshop fake. But it's not. It's real.

There's no billboard ownership plate on this particular billboard, making tracing the person who had the cash to post it difficult to find. It's time to crowdsource this puppy.

Update 11:44 a.m. - An e-mail to Wyoming Mayor Sheldon Anderson yields no further clue:

Wish I could take credit for it. Calls every day asking if it was me. If you find out let me know.

Update 11:46 a.m. - Luke Hellier at Minnesota Democrats Exposed thought he had a lead on the owner, but alas....

The person who I thought did not put up the billboard. He has been contacted about keeping it up if the current owner takes it down due to money.

We may have to offer a News Cut coffee mug to smoke the owner out. Sadly, we don't have News Cut coffee mugs. (SOURCE)

I just heard a little while ago that it was a group of small business owners who footed the bill for the sign because they said they were fed up with the way Obama treats the middle class and small business owners.
