The Lone Heckler 08-17-2012

This guy was the only heckler. Below I have a picture I happened to take of him and then two pictures of him tearing up a placard. What was hilarious was as he was being escorted out, someone in the crowd shouted "Go back to your mother's basement!" which meant the dude had to leave while thousands of people were pointing and laughing. Very lame.

Paul Ryan Rally Today

Went to my first political rally today. I've been to loval TEA Party protests but not being a big fan of crowds, never a rally. Today was fun. Saw a bunch of local politicians and Paul Ryan (whom I have seen/met before as he gave the keynote speech at my husband's think tank's annual dinner about two months ago). Anyways, below are some pictures I took
Love the Cheesehead gear.
Sat on the floor of the West Springfield High School gym for two hours. Definately felt like this kid.
Fairly diverse crowd.
Introducing Mr. Ryan
As I said, a nice mix of people. The fellow with the red hair in front of me was wearing work coveralls and was very nice. And pretty cool when the Secret Service started monitoring him.
Can I get a fist pump?
Yes, this is my "Hey Girl" shot.
Making a point.
Closing statements.
