Sarah Palin in Pennsylvania

by Vince

She made a stop yesterday in northern York county and then made her way over to Philadelphia to see the liberty bell. I wonder if she took I-76 or the more scenic Route 30.

For Those in the Philly Area…

I talked to my Mom last night and heard you all got a foot and a half of snow. Yikes!

New Week

by Vince

On the plate for this week: I will be subbing most of the week. MJ has a meeting today in CBurg so she will be gone from today until tomorrow night after her class. Big sad face with that one. I started a new book, started reading the November issue of The Atlantic, am applying for a long term substitute position in Lancaster, and I am excited for the weekend coming up in the valley! Barack Obama will be in Philadelphia this Saturday for a final Democratic rally before next Tuesday’s elections. I wish I could be in two places at once! To top this all off, I found some Men’s after shave from Victoria’s Secret that my Mom gave me. I smell so good!

The above picture is to symbolize change or things anew. God knows I have been praying for some of that.

“‘For here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to take you out of these countries, gather you from all over, and bring you back to your own land. I’ll pour pure water over you and scrub you clean. I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that’s God-willed, not self-willed. I’ll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands. You’ll once again live in the land I gave your ancestors. You’ll be my people! I’ll be your God!

Presidential Projectile

by Vince

I am kicking myself in the face today. I totally lost track of when Obama was coming into Philly. It was this past weekend (doh!). Anywho, check out the above picture. Notice the book beaming towards Obama? Oh no, Bush deja vu? It seems to be quite the opposite (video included):

The Secret Service is now shedding some more light on the circumstances surrounding a man who threw a book at President Obama at an event in Pennsylvania Sunday. And they’re not throwing the book at him.

According to Secret Service spokesperson, Ed Donovan, the person involved was an overzealous author who just wanted to toss his book into the president’s reading list.

“He was an over exuberant person who wrote a book that he wanted the president to read,” Donovan told CNN.

The NR Corner brings to light a multi-ethnic Tea Party rally in, of all cities, my home area of Philadelphia.
