Well, I drove out to Montauk Point today and...
Advertisements [?]
from where I am that's about 40 miles, two ferry rides, and passing lots of million dollar homes, multimillion dollar boats, and places where they sell you $100 a pound chicken salad and $15 bowls of clam chowder.

I saw exactly two political yard signs on this trip-- both were for Obama.

Does that say something?
