I was out with the family at the Mayfest Parade in Strasburg. About one-third of the way through the parade, a small group of people came through, holding up signs saying "Shenandoah County Democrats", as well as signs for Maxine Roles and Sam Rasoul. The parade was a loud affair with lots of cheering.
That was, until the Dems showed up, then there was silence until they passed. I kid you not, it was like a funeral procession was passing by. You could see a few of them were uncomfortable walking amongst the deafening silence.
A woman shouted "Vote Roles!" as she passed by, to which I responded "Sorry, I'm voting for Obenshain!" She shot me a dirty look, as if I had professed some sort of allegiance to Satan.
I came by their "stand" after the parade, which was a rickety little table with 3 chairs. The same woman from the parade was there, so I asked her why their stand was so small. She replied, "at least we're here, where are the Republicans today?"
I replied "You didn't see them? They were the ones lined up along King Street, watching the parade you were in."
She sat and burned, I smiled...and parted with the words "Fred Thompson for President" and walked away.
Thought I'd share that with you guys.
