Politics is the talk of the town, here in RNC-ville this week.
The other morning as we tried to get home through downtown — which is covered with American flags as well as “road closed” signs — Victoria announced that someday she was going to be “Vice-President!”
Unprompted, she added, “I’m going to put lemonade in all the drinking fountains!”
I try not to wear my politics on my sleeve on this blog, but it’s pretty integrated with our lives right now. So in the late summer spirit of partisanship, more photos.
I guess since Dick Cheney isn’t running for anything this year, we’ll have the next best thing:

I’ve been thinking about politics and blogging, and I’ve decided that limited mention of politics is OK for me, as long as I keep it positive. Which means I will not elaborate on my thoughts about Norm Coleman, Sarah Palin, or John McCain, or even their party or their supporters. I am free to say that Obama is an exciting candidate, I think it’s cool his VP candidate is Catholic (though I don’t vote based on that), and I have an Al Franken sign in my yard, because anyone is better than Norm.
Whoops, better work on that self-control.
For technical reasons involving internet access, we now have cable, which means I can get all the fake news and political satire I can handle from 2 guys who would be my secret boyfriends, if I had such things.
