Didn’t see that one coming…

Remember Family Ties? That ‘80s sitcom with liberal parents and spunky son Alex P. Keaton played brilliantly by Michael J. Fox? For those who don’t know, much to his parents’ chagrin, the boy worshiped Ronald Reagan.

Well, on Friday, Danny and I were in the car listening to the radio as Sen. McCain introduced his pick for Vice-President. As governor Palin spoke, every time the partisan crowd clapped and cheered, little Alex P.--er--Danny H., in the back seat joined in with extremely enthusiastic clapping AND hooting.

Oh dear. Now I’m afraid to flip through the TV channels now lest I come across a NASCAR race. Just breathe Monica. Just breathe.


P.S. Is it just me, or were there others who had never heard of the governor of Alaska before last Friday?

Oh, that show! That brings me back! They look so YOUNG! The parents seemed OLD to me back then!

I'd never heard of the governor of Alaska, either.

NO ONE heard of Sarah Palin before the announcement. Good luck w/ Alex P. over there! Great show, thanks for bringing me back!
