Land of a Thousand Republicans 

So here I am in Minneapolis, ready to square my fun (see below) at the 2008 Republican National Convention in short order. Okay, those of you who know me can pick yourselves up on the floor where you fell laughing.

I'm really just here between flights, but given that the RNC event is next week, the place is plastered with all these welcoming signs. Because what's more fun than one city full of die-hard Republican stalwarts? Twin Cities full of them!! Yeeha!

I guess the bright side of things is that I'm traveling this week, during preparations, rather than over the weekend or next week, when I'd be totally surrounded. There might be some folks arriving on Thursday as I'm passing back through this way - I'll be sure to stay alert.

The Girl had a wonderful time picturing me surrounded by the delegates. Eventually I'd just have to stop walking and scream.
