    Everywhere we've gone in the past 2 weeks we've seen voter registration tables (I assume sponsored by the Obama campaign)  Unfortunately 5 McCain yard signs popped up in my neighborhood in the past week as well.  We've always had a unspoken truce where no one put up yard signs in our dead-end neighborhood since it only advertises to the rest of us in the neighborhood.  Needless to say we're going to get our own signs this week.

      And I was just talking to her this morning about the election.

      She is solidly Democrat but has many friends and co-workers who she describes as solidly independent, middle and working class white women.  I specifically was interested in their views on Palin, and was happy to hear that the consensus among her friends and colleagues is that they are "scared" of her.  

      The whole library/book-banning issue seems to particularly resonate with them.  I think its because everyone has first-hand experiences from their own communities dealing with that crazy, pushy, super-right-wing Christian woman who tries to get things banned from the library.

      The whole conversation definitely raised my spirits.
