Today, I went on a field trip with the Young Democrats Club to campaign for Kerry. We bassically just were spread out to busy intersections, given signs, and told to look enthusiastic. It was actually fun, and I had little mini-conversations with people stopped at red lights, thanking them for voting for Kerry and urging them to get their friends to, or asking people to explain (in about 7 seconds) why they had voted for Bush. The highlight of the day was when some beat up blue sedan rolled up to a red light. On the back window it had a sticker saiyng "Support Candidate X, Republican State Representative Candidate". I can't remember the name exactly, but I'll try to find out which district I was in and fill it in later. Anyway, on the sticker, there was Candidate X's picture. In the passenger seat of the car (the side facing me), sitting there, with the window open, was none other than Candidate X himself. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to talk to him and asked "Sir, sir, will you be voting for John Kerry today?" He responded, jokingly saying "Absolutelyyyyyy NOT". I said "C'mon, John Kerry stands for..." but was cut off by him yelling something at me, then I repeated myself, louder, saying "John Kerry stands for fiscal responsibility!", and he kept shouting some campaign slogan at me and drove off. Possibly the funniest thing that's ever happened to me, I hope that guy doesn't get elected, and doubt he will, since he was the passenger in such a crappy beat-up car. Anyone else ever had a yelling match with a politician?
