• Indecision Delegate: Sara Benincasa Will Entertain You with a Bevy of Photos from Her Trip to the Rally, America!

    Hello, Concerned Citizens! 'Tis I, Sara Benincasa, your Indecision Delegate, here with a bevy of photos from our nation's capital (which is Washington, D.C. Just FYI.) I had such a delightful time at the Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear a few weeks back that it's taken me this long to recover sufficiently to show you the fun pics I took with my AT&T Blackberry Torch. Behold the power and the wonder of cameraphone adventures!

    .

    We began our journey shooting a delightful video at Ford's Theatre, where Abraham Lincoln was shot at close range by John Wilkes-Booth. I greatly enjoy Important Assassinations of Note, so I was in a rollicking good mood. Despite my charmingly accessible, nonthreatening exterior, I'm sort of a creepy goth on the inside.

    .

    Then it was on to Washington, D.C.'s gorgeous Union Station, where dignitaries and personages used to arrive from around the globe (this was before commercial air travel had been invented, obvs.) This photograph is evidence that I am a complete delight to work with, and also that D.C. can't even build a train station that doesn't look like some kind of freakin' ancient temple.

    .

    After that, we moseyed on over to my BFF Barry Obama's house for some drinks (hey, it was 2 o'clock SOMEWHERE!) and a casual convo about the upcoming G-20 Summit. I was all, "Barack, can I Facebook this meeting?" and he was all, "Sara, you know that's against the rules at the White House, we tell you this every time you come over (which is like every week, because we love you)" and I was all, "Barry, it's cool, I'm just joshing you, I'mma just post the photo I take on your front lawn."

    .

    How could I miss a stop at the Lincoln Memorial, especially since I'd geeked out at Ford's Theatre just a few hours prior? It would've been disrespectful to not say hey to my boy Abe, or at least to a ginormous replica of his body. I'm into ugly/hot nerds, so we probably would've dated if I'd been around in his log-splitting days.

    .

    It was most delightful to get to check out the preparations for the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.

    .

    I stopped to ask a few questions and, of course, make a few new younger boyfriends.

    .

    A couple of days later, I went to the ACTUAL RALLY and met these wild Sanity/Fearmongers!
