My 17-year-old sister Anna played hooky from school on Tuesday and headed up to Lebanon, OH to go to a McCain/Palin rally. She and her friends were able to get fairly close to the stage, and she tells me that John McCain looks much younger in person than on camera, and that he spoke well. As Sarah Palin passed through the crowd afterwards, Anna called out something to the effect of, "Stand up for life, Governor Palin! We're counting on you!" She said that Sarah Palin seemed pleased and surprised, made eye contact and greeted her, and gave her an autograph. Here's a picture (the curly head in front belongs to Anna):
First Dude is lookin' pretty fine as well.
(Don't be jealous, but I can also connect myself to Kevin Bacon in less than six degrees.)
