obama's visit!

President Obama came to Charlottesville to support congressman Perriello in a big rally. It was a really big rally -- I read that 10,000 people showed up to hear him speak. Needless to say, the whole city was buzzing. The tea partiers had a protest, the anti-war folks had a protest; it seemed like everyone had something to say. It was pretty cool and also pretty funny. So, my (10 year old) friend Emerson and I decided to have our own rally (across the street from the tea party protest) to add to the hubbub. I don't have any pictures of us in action, but here are a few of our signs:

Someone also wrote an awesome article about our shenanigans:
