Not plushy but cool anyway
Obama doesn't have enough hair to be plushy (though some days I wish he'd grow an afro just to irritate the right wing) but we like him anyway. Good friend JDW waited in line 2 hours on Sunday to get tickets, and then braved the cold and rain today to attend Obama's health care rally in Ohio.
As you can see, he got pretty close to the president. This photo was shot just before he shook the president's hand - said handshake has now doomed JDW to "dirty fucking hippy" status for all eternity.
JDW describes the tone in the hall as "resolute." Good.
We thank him for enduring the cold, rain, crowds and security nonsense and turning out to support reform in person.
I must confess to be disappointed that he didn't come back with a frame of Obama putting his shoe up Kucinich's ass.
