This Just In from the Democratic National Convention by Frances Barbour
I was out with my mom and her friends this morning. I was in a very interesting conversation about Sen. Biden.
All the people at the table said he was a good choice and good for America. I agree 95 percent but I’m waiting to make my final decision until I hear him speak on Wednesday.
After that, we went to lunch.
We saw people on top of a big van saying “Rock the Vote” having their own concert! The concert was to encourage young people to register to vote.
I bought a tie-dye t-shirt that says “Obama 08” with a peace sign in the middle of the zero.
With the shirt, I bought three more buttons. One shows Barack Obama speaking. Another has Fred Flinstone putting his arm around a caveman, whose face is John McCain. On the pin it says, “McCain, the Early Years.”
The last one is a high school picture of Barack with his afro and it says “Barack in the Day.”
And, my mom scored a convention floor pass for me. I am really looking forward to going!
(Editor’s Note: This is in response to yet anther dim-witted question from the know-nothing editor who wondered if Frances had seen some weird looking people in Denver or, at minimum, people that looked weirder than the aforementioned editor. To wit:)
Yes, I did see a few crazy people today. Rock band people. A person selling newspaper hats. And a person dressed in a orange suit from head to toe. Plus, I saw about three trucks of police, policemen on horses and rows of policemen walking like soldiers with guns in their pockets. I’m sure I’ll be safe on this trip.
