The day started early. I left the house at 6:00am, took the long drive up to Wasilla, just because I had to wave a sign at Sarh Palin as she drove by. We never caught up with the sign waving crowd, but we did see the Governor’s entourage flanked by Alaska State Trooper cars in front and back, with 12 or 15 SUVs and other vehicles in between. The sun wasn’t up yet, and it was freezing cold. I doubt she saw me with my Alaskans for Obama sign on the side of the road, but I can say I was there. I followed the motorcade on the way back into town, but never caught up. They were in a hurry.
I debated whether to go to the Sarah Palin event she had planned in Anchorage, because normally I like infiltrating such things (so you don’t have to), but today, after my brief statement roadside in Wasilla, I’ve decided to take my focus off the dark side.
Back in Anchorage, there were lots of people out smiling and waving signs at major intersections – Obama, Begich, and Berkowitz supporters were out en masse. There were a few Don Young people, even fewer McCain Palin people, and nobody for Ted Stevens on this first pass through town today.
Next stop – voting! I’ve got my video camera, and I’m ready to video my vote.
