Seeing Newt

About 2:30 this afternoon, after a nice visit with my cousins today and last night, I read on Facebook that Gingrich was going to be at the local Chick Fil A (the one owned by friends and where Andrew used to work) from 3:30 to 4:15. The rain had stopped - what did we have to lose - we decided to go see all the fuss.

Below: Bus pulling up at the left. The white bus on the right is the press bus.

If you look carefully, you can see Newt directly in the center between a camera and a man's head.

There was a large crush of people.

Taken through the glass window of the restaurant. I was inside with some students who offered me a seat, so I got to hear his brief speech. Mike was still on the outside and took this picture.

Newt's bus - we stood by it for quite awhile waiting for him to come back out, but he slipped out the other side of the restaurant and left in an SUV to meet up with his bus in another location. Just like a politician!

Sounds like a fun outing. However, those politicians can just be soooo sneaky!!
