Dispatches From Hofstra, Part 2


Romney has a cool pickup truck.

C-SPAN has an even cooler interactive bus.

This big “Truth” thing is some sort of confessional where you have to tell the truth (I’m not going in there).

The two folks posing are part of a group called “99rise.” They are there to protest corporate money in politics, although I’m not sure how they can say anything at all with those dollars taped to their mouths. Someone should help them.

Finally, AARP will let you pose with the candidates, kind of, which my daughter decided to do.

    Don’t remind them where those dollar bills might have been prior to gracing their lips.

    On a side note, are they going to be part of the debate crowd?

    The cool pickup truck wins hands down every time.

    Unless someone comes in with a cherry red convertible, then all bets are off.

    is it just me, or do the cut-outs of Obama and Romney seem to signify what the AARP thinks of each candidate. Obama is looking almost presidential, as if he is presiding over that podium… Romney seems to have his back turned like he is walking away. Message: Obama loves you and is cool; romney is aloof.

    Or am I reading too much into photos?

    I’m glad I gave up my AARP membership at the time Obamacare was rammed through.

    BTW, how can C-Span afford such a fancy bus, and make better programs than PBS, without gummint money?

    AARP was campaigning on a university campus?

    What’s a “loof”?
