... that the Palins are Cubs fans!
I was one of the throngs who attended the McCain-Palin rally in Fairfax VA today. The crowd was more than twice as much as expected, a cop said at least 20,000 and the McCain camp said a few thousand more. There were people literally hanging in the trees to get a better look.
Fred Thompson was a nice surprise, introducing the ticket. The roar when Johnny B. Goode and Sarah America stepped up was overwhelming. It was as if a sleeping giant had awakened from a bad dream, and was delirious to discover that all was right with the world after all.
Yes, people went bonkers for Sarah, but I have to say it wasn't a crazy delirium -- it was an elixir that gave us all back that spring in our step and belief in our hearts.
Who cares what incredibly stupid things the other side said today -- we are so above it... We need do nothing but shoo them off like a fly and turn away.
So here is a video I managed to get as they candidates left -- I was thrilled that I figured out a spot to wait at, and they walked right below me.
The bonus was Todd's response to the question a guy shouted out for me above the crowd.
