Bridge for Obama
Please forgive one more political post on my otherwise pottery focused blog. Today I attended a rally on the bridge in downtown Minocqua. The organizers of the Bridge for Obama rally expected about 50 people. Over 150 people showed up in the freezing cold drizzle to show their support for Barack Obama. This may not sound like a lot of people to some of you urban dwellers, but it was a huge turnout for this largely republican small town. We had a great time, got lots of honks, waves and thumbs up. We also got a few flying middle fingers and one full hairy "moon" from a passenger in one passing vehicle. Another classy McCain supporter...you betcha!
Here's some photos. They speak for themselves!
