There was lots of excitement in the Allentown office this Friday at our voter registration drive as we decorated Easter eggs, ate lots of chocolate, and had a visit with the Easter Bunny. Moms showed their support for Hillary and they brought friends who needed to register as Democrats to cast a ballot for her on April 22nd. The kids, happy to have a day off from school, colored eggs and made Hillary signs which are now proudly displayed in our office. The fun was contagious and spilled right over into our canvass kick-off on Saturday morning! Don’t forget—you’ve got just two more days to change your registration and vote for Hillary in the primary!Nothing Pennsylvanians enjoy better than a traditional holiday voter registration drive . . .
Here's a story about Monday's opening of the Allentown office of Hillary's campaign (follow the link to see a hysterically funny video):
"It's not just because she's a woman," Joanne Messenlehner insisted above the din late this afternoon at the open-house inauguration of the Hillary Clinton campaign headquarters in Allentown, where the faithful had come to cheer and volunteer.Joanne Messenlehner: Another thorn in the crown of the crucified Obama -- and she's from Nazareth, Pa. How appropriate is that?
"She's the best candidate."
And yet Messenlehner of Nazareth, one of dozens of volunteers and staffers crowding the little office near Fifth and Hamilton streets -- squeezed between a dry cleaner and a tattoo parlor -- couldn't resist a quick, merry foray into gender politics.
"It's long overdue," she said. "The men have messed things up for so long, I think we're finally going to get it right."
Wanna bet the tattoo parlor gets more business from Clinton staffers than the dry cleaner does?
