Strange things happen when the Trooprallys are out of town and I have to fill in. I won't go into detail about what happened last time. This time, sure as space aliens crash landed in Rosswell New Mexico back in '47, the Straight Talking Curvaceous Walking Bus was stopped at the traffic light while we were setting up!
We had just erected the "Support Our Troops" banner. I saw the bus driver pointing at us enthusiastically. He seemed to be shouting and calling to whoever was in the back of the bus.
He beeped and waved as he drove through the intersection. We waved back like we do for all the vehicles that pass by. I didn't give it any more thought and we continued to set up.
A short moment later I realize this big bus had pulled into the parking lot and parked right behind us.
Lo and behold, out steps Gov Sarah Palin, looking like a 150 thousand bucks, with family in tow!
Everybody stops what their doing and goes running over to meet her. I was in front of the rush when all of a sudden I feel an elbow land on top of my head and the next thing I know Lurker Bill's in front of me. So I threw my right leg out kicking Bill's right leg into is own left leg causing him to trip and fall flat on his face into the grass. Still rubbing my head I take off
Halsey gets to Sarah first.
Once Sarah saw all these American Legion guys with their fancy jackets, hats, and ribbons the rest of us didn't have a chance. It was like Bill, Frax, Gary and I weren't even there. She only wanted to talk to the Legionnaires. She gave her usual stump speech.
"You know the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull?"
Before she could answer her own riddle I shouted, "LIPSTICK?"
Boy, if looks could kill.
If you win this election are ya gonna get McMaverick to repeal Campaign Finance Reform? What about amnesty for illegal aliens? Taxes on carbon emmissions? And...and...!
Some of the Legionnaires starting walking towards me. Glen says he's going to rip
I know I was out of line. Sometimes I can't help myself. I finally settled down and we headed back to our corner. But when we got back the Palins had gone. That's when kburi finally arrived with his camera...
Some may tell you that I'm pulling your leg because Sarah was in Sioux City that morning. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Don't forget to vote this Tuesday. Vote Palin 2012.
We had 12 Patriots supporting our troops October 25th.
Mr Trooprally wanted to make sure I included the following boiler plate info at the end of the report.
DC Chapter ping
Still laughing — just love your report!
FReep On Everyone —— AND DON’T FORGET TO VOTE ON TUESDAY!!!
FOR MCCAIN/PALIN — THE WINNING TICKET FOR AMERICA!
Just got back from the Arizona phome bank for McCain. We were calling New Mexico and were getting good results. Don’t know the results of all callers. Got a lot of answer machines sadly.
0bama folks decided to picket right out the door (about 100).
Many news reporters in the phone bank, especially since we are in McCain’s home state.
Never give up, never call retreat!
BufordP - Now this is a GREAT AAR.
And just yesterday, a week late, your were telling me "since Kburi didn't show up on time, I have nothing to write about". (Quotes mine, not Buford's real words)
[Mrs] T and I should leave town more often. In fact, we'll be out of town visiting our Marine son on the Nov. 15th weekend.
Let's take our own vote
D.C. Chapter -
YES ___ NO ___
(ACORN says "NO" votes register as a YES vote)
Seriously, Thanks to BufordP and ALL who showed up to Support Our Troops. [Mr] T
It’s a sad day for a sad vote. :-))
You had me going there BufordP! Lol ; )
Stay well and keep warm everyone
Scarcity is underrated. Obamao for President!
(Needless to say, that’s dark humor — or is calling it so racist?)
I think he should do it. He funny! Ha Ha.
It’s been a long time since I laughed that hard! GREAT AAR!!!
Herb and I hope to visit Olney soon and even get to W.R. one Friday... if work schedules allow.
Hockey Mom indeed.
Halsey need to do more than rip your ears off.
We’ll be looking forward to both. It’s always great to welcome a Blue Star Mom and a Marine Vietnam Vet, and their family if they can also make it.
“That’s my story and I’m sticking to it” sayeth the sage BufordP.
However, they are great pictures.
So I was 5 minutes late, there was a line at starbuck’s - no apologies for that.
And who was it who had to remind you to get the names?
So back at you big guy.
You two sound like a bunch of politicians!!! :-))
Now I want to hear the story behind that pic. True or a very good foto shop or it not you but Joe the Plumber.
I meant 25 minutes late, a very very long line at Starbuck’s.
Well off to be Closing Election Judge to keep the damocrats honest.
I like your story so keep sticking to it! Great AAR and filling in for [Mr] and [Mrs] T. Thanks for supporting our troops and keeping the stories interesting!
