When Did You Hear About Obama

My sister is bemoaning the fact that the campaign is getting a little frightening in the final weeks and we, as Minnesotans, get to enjoy a ring side show while McCain tries to rein in his supporters during a Lakeville rally. I'm not so sure I agree with her blanket statement about Americans - most of the liberals I know aren't screaming about Palin or McCain, they just consider them with that sort of "are they serious?" expression that Republicans seem to associate with elitism instead of incredulity, that look you save for someone who's been making your job harder for the last decade and you constantly wonder why they still have their job.

My sister should have posted video however. You've probably seen most of these, but in case you haven't, here's post-rally in Ohio (via Majikthise), and during the rally in Minnesota. If you scroll to the bottom of this post, you can be assured that my family knew about Obama over four years ago, although we can only prove it as far back as about 3.95 years ago.
