Barack Obama!

And that's all I need to say.

(click on the photos to enlarge ya'll)

This weekend MrPea, I, and 20,000 people went to see Barack Obama(!) About 8,000 could not get in and stayed to listen to his speech from the street.

Since I am 4' frikin 11" this was pretty much my view. But I did get to see-of course I had to stand on tip-toes for the whole speech. And in spite of how these lousy, no zoom 6m pix photos look, we actually had a great view.

(I took a mini video clip just in case any one I knew disbelieved me.)

In case anyone is wondering why I would volunteer and support Barack Obama- I shouldn't have to explain, it should be a no brainer. , I can tell you that it has nothing to do with "lipstick." I'm an actual thinking woman who doesn't give a crap whether my president wears boxers or panties so long as my president has brains enough to get us the hell out of this mess we're in. But if you read here and I read your blog, you probably already knew my choice. For one- I can't watch my husband's job get outsourced while the same companies get tax incentives to do so. And I can't watch someone who was FOR deregulation before and now tries to act like he's the champion of regulation get into the White House . I won't watch my husband get laid off one more damn time. Can't do it ya'll.

Anyway, I have never used my blog to rant about politics in the past(except when I was complaining about healthcare) and I don't plan to start preachin' now. I just wanted to brag about my weekend.

(Oh BTW I'll be doing some phone banks in the next few weeks, so if I call you,and you so don't wanna hear it, be nice to me ok?)

I support Barack Obama, but I couldn't keep my eyes of the weird face on the back of one guys baseball hat. It's like it had two weird, grey fluffy eyes.

Courtney said...

Err, couldn't keep my eyes OFF, too.

Oh! I saw it just now. It's like two big eyes and mustache! heehee

Nice read...most of my friends there are supporting the same candidates...I meant the Filipino community that I know of of course!

I'm not sure that anyone can dig us out of the mess the present administration has created, but Obama is our best hope.

It's times like this that I wish I were taller, too. Your pictures are great. Thanks for taking us with you to this historic event!
