Not Everyone in Maryland Is Delighted
The historic nature of Barack Obama's election was not lost on Republican Bruce Wesbury when he woke up yesterday morning. He decided to mark it by... fixing his shower.
"Life goes on," Wesbury said, taking a break from his shower remodeling to chat with a reporter. "I'm just relaxing. Actually, just doing some plumbing."
Wesbury, the finance chair of the Republican Central Committee in Charles County, spent most of the last two months campaigning for Senator John McCain in Pennsylvania and Virginia -- two places McCain actually seemed to stand a chance of winning. The full-time commitment kept Wesbury busy -- so busy, in fact, that he couldn't find time to remodel the shower that "just didn't look good."
With McCain's loss, however, Wesbury's schedule has opened up. He was laid off from his job at a picture frame company a few months ago, just in time to devote all his energies to the McCain campaign. So what will he and other Republicans do now that the campaign is over?
"I slept in this morning," Wesbury said. "Had a great night's sleep."
And after that?
"Obama's got a lot of promises to keep, so that will keep us busy," he said. "Two more years, and nobody to blame but the Democrats."
