kind of a funny story...


a few weeks ago at the farmers market i was somewhat surprised to see tents set up in support of the two presidential candidates. what do politics have to do with getting freshly grown food? maybe some of you could fill me in.

anyway, as you can see from this photo taken close to the end of the farmers market's open hours, one booth was still very active - making every attempt to convince those willing to listen (obama), while the other was being taken down prematurely (mccain).

i commented that mccain must be conceding the pasadena farmers market, but no one at his stand seemed to find that very humorous.

they'll go out and talk to folks wherever they can. I cannot WAIT for this election to be over! I'm tired of 95% of the tv ads being political and lies.

I find it interesting the McCain folks left early---they also don't look too happy.

Glad to see No on 8 signs out too.

Commercials/ads, & govt/politicians. Just can't escape them. They're all looking for the same thing-money.

For some people, the Repubs & Demos are like their religion.

Where's the simple life?

I can imagine the voice PA. Spot on!

Simple life is now a TV show. That's all we've got.

Love your comment, Ben. Just the sort of thing I would say.

Cafe Observer said...

It's on TV, BW?
Well then, I hope The Simple Life is a reality show.

Ya, I'm not sure if it is on anymore. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie living on a farm with strangers. As reality as it gets.

My street has Obama/Biden signs all up and down it, and even more "No on 8" signs. There are very few McCain/Palin signs to be found on the Pasadena streets I've traveled lately. I notice there are more of them on the winding roads of San Marino, though.

yep, McCain is a rarity around here!
