First as Victory, Then as Farce

In a strange two-years-later parody of our trip to the inauguration, Jaimee and I are again heading north by train to the National Mall. A few Rally for Sanity nonprotestors are here in the station with us: their sign reads YOUR WATER HAS BEEN FLOURIDATED WITH HYDROGEN.

Early verdict: the critics were right, this is all just a joke.

Photos and more scintillating get-off-my-lawn commentary as events warrant. Keep an eye on Flickr and Twitter; it’s easier to post there from my phone…

  1. Cynicism update: we just walked by a middle-aged woman barking GOTV instructions into her cell phone. She’s going to the rally too. The critics were wrong, it’s all for real!

    Or, you know, the other critics were right and it’s killing GOTV.

  2. The GOTV lady sounds wildly optimistic about early voting, by the way. Lines have been long (they were when we went yesterday). Predicting a repeat of 2008, when Durham put Obama over the top for the state, she says “Durham may do it again.”
