October 9 Political Rally - They're not angry, just fired up

As I've been teasing, Mrs. Headless earned a pair of tickets for yesterday's McCain-Palin rally in Waukesha. Unfortunately, I had a meeting that could not be missed so she took a neighbor with her instead.

Actually, it was probably a good thing that I was not there. I might have made that crazy sounding guy look rational, and possibly earned some face-time with the Secret Service.

And wouldn't you know it? Doesn't it always seem that when you go early to the theater or a game to get a good seat, someone always drags in late and sits in front of you? And invariably it is a guy of NBA height or a tall lady with big hair. Same thing for Mrs. Headless yesterday. These are a handful of her photos. She did a great job.

I don't think this is Tommy's best side.

I'm still looking for Tommy's good side.

The now famous James T. Harris was seated near my wife. For a proud minivan driver, the man has style. Obama can only dream of looking this good.

Governor Palin is in the building.

Hard to get a shot in without including that lady's hair.

Here's one without the hair. Senator McCain looks pretty spry for an old fart. I think I want him on my side if I'm going to an ass whoopin'.

Another shot of that lady's hair. I should quit complaining, my wife said that the lady was very nice and extremely gracious.

A good photo of Governor Palin responding to a question. You can barely see the hair.

I would have loved to have been there, but I was busy doing my part to make nuclear energy safe for America. All things considered, I cannot complain. I am extremely happy with the swag my wife brought home for me.

And I didn't have to sit behind the lady with the big hair or have Reuters post my picture worldwide.

FYI, sent your college-voting post links to George Stanley at the Journal-Sentinel along with the link to the Lawrence College story of this AM.

Let's see if Stanley has any balls.

I doubt it. Maybe the interest of an Assistant DA will open a few eyes.
