The BGSU cheerleaders were leading "USA" cheers and throwing out tons of pompoms in patriotic colors to the audience. It was un poquito scary. Besides the culty patriotism, the fact that a school group was directly involved seemed a little bit, I don't know, "inappropriate" or something. Local politicians talked for awhile, then the amazing Aaron Tippin country-patriotic performance occurred. I kind of wanted to die inside when I spotted a classmate of mine down in the crowd rocking the fuck out. I'll try not to hold it against him too much. Until she brought out JOE THE PLUMBER! (plaid-ish shirt on her far side) I had a subversive homemade t-shirt created at the suggestion of my dear Ka$h. Thrift Store Champion made one too, but I didn't get a pic of it. However, heere's the sweatshirt his old, old mustachioed father gave him:
I woke up all early and shit and went to the Sarah Palin/Republican rally. We stood outside in the cold. Not "Minnesota" cold, obvs, but Ohio October chilliness. So I couldn't expose my subversive homemade t-shirt until I got inside. In line in front of me and Thrift Store Champion were some guys discussing how best to kill a moose. Behind us was a middle-aged couple expressing their "suspicions" about how Obama "got his money" to a high school student. It was AWESOME.Vic-to-fucking-ry.
