Columbus 11/1/2004

by BillG on November 2, 2004

Drove back to Columbus today, listening to Bill Clinton’s My Life on CD. It’s only six CDs, an abridgement and – judging from the reviews – an improvement of the book. The reader is… Bill Clinton. He is, of course, a terrific storyteller (double entendre intended).

When I got home, I found a Republican encampment across the street from my house. Apparently the law firm that owns the building is giving them the parking lot, and perhaps office space. Lots of strangers milling around. There are over 30 cars with W stickers, and 6 white vans (there are probably more about, because one van is numbered ’10’).

Is this HQ for South Columbus? Or just for my precinct (we and they are about a block north of the church where we vote)?

I’m not suggesting that there is anything wrong with this. Just experiencing shock and awe at the resources they are deploying.

I bet you were polite and didn’t destroy any lawn signs, shoot up their campaign office or intimidate voters in lines either!

I have sent my spouse as an election observer from Western Australia to Rhode Island, New Jersey and whatever the city Carnegie Hall is in. As a member ov the VRWC I anticipate major civility.

Carnegie Hall, I believe, is in Practice.

Two points for Delicious Pundit.
