  • Republican Night on the Red Line

       October 14, 2004

    Living in DC, I'm largely resigned to the fact that almost everyone here is a Democrat. And when I say everyone, I mean EVERYONE, from the run down ghettos of Anacostia to the rich NW neighborhoods of Georgetown and Chevy Chase. To put it in perspective, in the 2000 election, Al Gore won 85% to George Bush's 9%. No, that isn't a typo. Bush really won only 9% of the DC vote.

    That's why I was delightfully surprised by my evening Metro ride starting at Farragut North. Consider:

    • I saw a man wearing a button that read "Republican Lawyers for GWB."

    • I saw another man wearing a tie fillled with elephants.

    • I overheard two men discussing their adventures in trying to keep their Bush signs up and untampered with. Said one man, "I couldn't believe it; the other day I put 3 signs up at 5pm, and when I went out to walk the dog at 7, two of them were knocked over. Usually they last about 10 days before that happens!" Unfortunately, this man is not alone. Free speech and diversity loving Dems all over the country are acting on their own to silence those with viewpoints that they don't agree with.

    Wow - Including me, that makes 5 Bush supporters all on the same train car. Scratch that, make that five VISIBLE Bush supporters. Who knows how many more there were, lurking in the shadows? Only time will tell, I suppose, but I have a sneaking suspicion that come Nov 3, people are going to finally see that there are a lot more closet Republicans in the District that they'd ever dreamt possible.
