COMMON CENTS had a reporter at the Fredericksburg, VA rally today. It is hard to describe the excitement, the passion, the emotion and yes the love of country that was on display in that park. Here are some of our favorite pictures:

Handmade signs were everywhere:
Young girls are inspired by Governor Palin:
Good shot of the crowd:

My favorite picture:
The African American's sign reads
Hello My Name is - Joe The Plumber
and yes we - are related
we're American
laugh at his dream
and you're laughing at mine too!

I wish we had known; we'd have driven up that way just to see her!

I always envy those in battleground states who get to meet these folks. Sarah, no matter what happens, has a huge career in front of her and we will be seeing much more of her.

I love living in Texas, but I never get to see the Republican candidates for President and VP because they know they've got Texas in the bag. :(

Great post. Hope your reporter was well taken care of up there?

keep up the faith.

Great job, the picks are great. I think Palin has inspired young people, young women, and everybody. Hopefully all those of age will get out and actually vote.

Tell me someone has made a t-shirt out of that sign. I want to wear one on election day

A lot of people seem to love her in spite of what the press says.

A friend and frequent contributor to my blog sent me an Email with the image of our relative American Joe the Plumber, and in so doing introduced me to your great blog.

I simply had to feature your image and link to the Common Cents blog in my most recent NEIN Blog entry.

Great blog, very well done!
