She looks even hotter in person . . .





. . . so said Alec Baldwin.  :-)  And he was right.  I snapped dozens of pictures at the McCain-Palin rally on Sunday, and I don't think I snapped a bad one of Sarah.  (You can click on these to enlarge them.) 

If you'd like to look at ALL of the pictures, you can access them here.  

My girlfriend and I got up early on Sunday morning and left the house before sunrise.  Unlike last week, when we couldn't even get IN the rally, we were among the first in line and managed to get places standing at the "fence" that runs along the stage.  Only problem was, we had to stand and wait from about 7:00 a.m. until after noon . . . with lots and lots of people pressing in on us.  

But hearing Sarah was wonderful.  Elizabeth Hasselbeck of THE VIEW gave her a rousing introduction, and then Sarah talked about all the things I hold dear--a free economy, relief from taxation, a strong military, finishing the job in Iraq, John McCain's honor and valor in serving his country, special needs children, etc.  And, LOL, she mentioned her clothes--and proudly informed us that she was wearing an outfit from her favorite consignment shop back in Alaska.  

The crowd was warm and supportive . . . and I only hope America comes through to support a true American hero who values human life, godly principles, and a conservative approach to the 
constitution.  

Don't forget to peek at my Facebook photo album if you'd like to see more pictures.  And thanks for dropping by!

Angie, How fun to relive your day at the rally since we get none of this in blue Illinois. I forgot about Elizabeth being there and Sean Hannity too! What a day.

We have a week and a day to go. I just watched a video on U-Tube you may want to check out:

Thanks for taking me along. I looked at all of your pictures; I especially enjoyed the shots of the creative crowd. I do hope she's our new VP.

It blows my mind that YOU would be a fan of someone, much like we are fans of you!

This election is driving me crazy. I just want to slap a few people. Especially those who are voting skin color not with any kind of integrity to their decisions.

Love the pictures.

Love how she is so comfortable being a woman. A strong woman. But she's not trying to be a man.

Oh, what a thrill to be at the rally with you vicariously. Your photography is fabulous. I've said it before, I would love to have a coffee table book of your photographic works. And, what a thrill it must have been for you to be up close and in the presence of these strong and honorable American patriots. How can people respond unfavorably to the honesty and integrity of such as these? They are the epitome of charisma, but charisma with substance! Thank you so much for sharing your day with us. If you don't mind, I will share this blog with my friends and fellow patriots. Clyde

Thank you for posting the pictures! I'm still praying and not believing the polls!

I don't mind your sharing at all, Clyde--in fact, I told the folks standing around me that they could go to my blog and copy any photos they wanted to. (I felt bad since I'm tall and was standing in front of them. I might have helped them, though, when I felt faint and had to sit for a spell during her speech. It was HOT in that mob!)

But I digress. Certainly, please share. I've been pointing people to all sorts of pertinent and trustworthy blogs.
