SJ visited Republican HQ today. I was sort of incognito, identified myself as SJ, said I blog as a photographer with neither rep nor dem commitment (is that true)?
This was combined McC:Dino:Reichert HQ, pretty much f a team effort. Not sure whick faction was running it all but it seemed as if ther head guy was a professional Republican.
I said I was not partial and just wanted to make pix for my blog. Head Guy did not believe me, esp. after he went out and checked my Ferrari for bumber stickers!. I told him my other car has McCain stickers but let me stay.
I ended up taking few pix .. and those by stealth. Not a lot of folks there but those there were intense. No one looked at me. The atmosphere seemed more like a book (illegal betting parlor) I remember from Boston on a losing night than the mood over on Mercer St. (Dem HQ ..Obama et al.). That plus the crew cut muscle guy watching me was .. well intimidating. I did flick a couple of shots w/o looking at the viewfinder but my Nikon is too noisy to do much of that.
Oh well, I left a few Obama Bucks in the Men's room and out by the BBQ they had set up. I decided I needed a pick me up. So I GPSd over to Darcy/Eastside Dems HQ. WOW! quelle difference! Easily twice the number of people and lots of traffic in and out! Nice folks, posed for me too! Of course I paid for all my pix with Obama bucks.
BTW .. I cruised Clyde hill to look at the Voting Season decorations .. very few MCC signs, no Gregoire signs, but there were signs for Obanma all over! Darcy and Reichert were neck and neck. One lady stopped me to ask what I was doing. She had a German accent so we talked in german. She is a 30 year resident .. Army wife, still not a citizen! Hubby, liberated Dachau. Oh, she is pro Obama! So is hubby! I paid here with Obama bucks too.
