Sarah Palin in Laconia
Yesterday, the children and I went up to Laconia to see Sarah Palin. A little lesson in civics for Anastasia. It was exciting even if she was late. There was a crowd of about 3500.
My daughter asking "I am so excited! When is Sarah Palin going to get here?"
The event was interesting we arrived at about 11:00 Governor Palin was expected to arrive at 1:00 p.m. I was surprised at the make up of the crowd behind us were two gay woman from Connecticut. The one woman was a life long democrat who supported Hillary she said the Democratic party has left her and she was supporting Sarah Palin because she was a Washington outsider who is for real reform and reformed her own State. Another couple standing next to us was from as he said "The Peoples' Republic of Vermont." I was surprised at the number of people from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine at the event. Sarah Palin did not arrive until 2:15. Despite the extra long wait the kids were patient and the people surrounding us were impressed as to how well behaved they were.
I wore a shirt that said "I am voting for" and a picture of Sarah Palin and below it said "Oh yeah and that old guy too." A number of people loved the shirt about 20 people took pictures of the shirt. I picked up the shirt on Ebay.
