Picture sent in from Curt
GLENN: Let me go to Curt in Pittsburgh. Hello, Curt.
CALLER: Hi, Glenn, the story that happened this weekend at the McCain/Palin rally in Pennsylvania, we have a 5 year old daughter with Down Syndrome and we've been fans of Sarah long before she came on the national scene and we drove down to the rally. We took our daughter Chloe, who's 5, down there. My wife made a sign that said "We love kids with Down Syndrome" and we managed to be in a position down there that when the bus pulled in, Sarah and Senator McCain could see us and they waved and had thumbs up when they saw had your daughter and they saw our sign. So we moved around and positioned ourself just so we could wave to them on the bus and when the bus was pulling out. And when the so we were standing there and a secret service agent came over to us and said, can your family come with us? And I said, well, I didn't pay those parking tickets but
GLENN: Okay, okay, maybe not all of the income tax.
CALLER: Right. So we went up the hill and we were taken right inside the inner circle and Senator McCain, Cindy McCain, Sarah Palin, her husband and her family were all there and they walked over and just greeted us and thank you for coming. And Sarah walked right up and she hugged me. That's one of my claims to fame now. And
GLENN: She's hot, isn't she? She's hot. I mean, let's be
CALLER: She is a beautiful woman, right.
GLENN: She's a beautiful woman.
CALLER: She's a beautiful woman.
GLENN: She is.
CALLER: She immediately asked if she could hold our daughter and I actually sent you and Stu pictures of this.
GLENN: Hang on just a second. I know Stu has been busy fielding calls from Clippy 4019er.
STU: The other thing I'm doing is looking up pictures of Sarah Palin. So I can break from the
GLENN: You know what, let's put these in the put these in the web in the newsletter, too. You get these for free if you are a subscriber to the free newsletter.
GLENN: Okay. So how long did you spend with her?
CALLER: We spent about 10 minutes, Glenn. What was really neat, too, her son who had Down Syndrome was on the bus and her daughter brought her son off the bus. He was napping. And our little daughter Chloe walked over and kissed him right on the head. It was just a magical moment. I said just solidified to me that here's a ticket that just embraces life, embraces all the possibilities and embraced the average people and we're average people. I work with children with disabilities. And they were my son who's 9, Senator McCain asked me if he wanted to see the bus. And just as down to Earth type of people. You could have gone and had pizza with them. They were just as kind as can be.
GLENN: So what is the were you a McCain supporter before?
CALLER: Well, I'm a very conservative evangelical Christian and I totally admire John McCain. Yes, I was. I really, I admire the man. He is a man of character. He has served his country and I even said to him when I had a chance to talk to him, I said, Senator McCain, we are here today attending this rally because of the service of you and men like you, great men like you who are the heart of this country and as you said earlier, they're sending their sons to protect the rights and freedoms that we have. And they are a blessing.
CALLER: And they are the best they are the hope for this country and they are the people, embrace the possibilities of the greatness of our nation and I just wanted to share that with you and it was an incredible experience. As we were walking down the hill, Glenn, I was talking to my wife, what just happened up there. It was pretty neat.
GLENN: All right, Curt, hang on just a second.
