- 10 points for unnecessary quotation marks
+ 5 points for spelling "it's" right (if it really is - kind of hard to tell)
- 5 points for promiscuously mixing upper- and lower-case letters
- any number of points for hanging around with people whose signs say "GO BACK TO KENYA"

On the other hand, any political ignoramus who can put together a sign that is laughably incomprehensible is not all bad in my book.

I actually believe the "deem" is a reference to deem and pass, which the Democrats were trying to use to pass the health care reform bill (don't know if the ended up using it. For some reason, the only thing on the news has been the "Terror Mosque" fiasco).

As for the lipstick comment, I believe that it refers to the saying "lipstick on a pig" i.e. a pig is still a pig, even if you put lipstick on it (of course, some of the solutions to the Ship of Theseus problem would disagree with that statement, but let's not go there).

So, to sum up, the sign would have been shorter if it was replaced with the following:
