Georgia Fair

Oct 08

The Georgia National Fair started this afternoon. I helped out at the Houston County Democratic Committee Booth in the McGill Marketplace. We live in a Republican stronghold here in Middle Georgia so I was expecting some negativity. But people can be so rude just because we are Democratic. The supplies including the life-size poster of President Obama have to be put away when the booth is not staffed. Last year a month before the election, the booth was vandalized more than once.

It is rewarding to have some civil conversations with some people. I have signed up for a few more days at the booth. I guess I am a glutton for punishment.
