This morning I went to see John McCain at the (Masonic) Scranton Cultural Center. I had forgotten the building was also the Masonic Temple. Actually, it is called “Scottish Rite Cathedral”. Walking up to the building I saw the Cardinal Virtues, the Keys, and other explicitly Catholic symbols. As I got closer I saw the Masonic writing and symbols. Oh well.
McCain did a good job. Sarah Palin didn’t come today, which was a disappointment. Arlen Specter, Joe Liebermann, and Lyndsey Grahm (sp?) were also there. Our local candidate for Congress was there…standing in the back all by himself. I sort of said hello. I kinda felt bad for him honestly. He didn’t speak at the podium either.
Today’s rally was given by the Irish Presidential Forum, which deals with Irish American issues. Specifically they seem to deal with Irish immigration and “the troubles”. Obama refused to attend.
