At a ceremony today at the museum, the speaker made a big deal out of explaining the origin of Presidents' Day (that it celebrates the birthdays of of two particular presidents, Lincoln and Washington, and does not celebrate the birthdays of all presidents). I wonder if he would have gone to all that trouble if he'd been a Democrat / Obama supporter. I'm just saying, why rattle on about the history of Presidents' Day during a ceremony that really has nothing to do with it aside from being on this particular day? I dunno, maybe I am just so sick of living in such a conservative town / conservative work environment that I'm jumping at shadows.
It didn't help that the other day an OC looked at me and said, "They don't let us out much. Are you following the primaries?" and I said, "Not really; I'm not planning on voting Republican." He gave me a look as if I'd spouted a foreign language and kept talking about the primaries like I hadn't spoken.
