I don’t know the diarist (tarheelian51), but he heard about the pin from Kevin, who I don’t know either; but Kevin and I have a mutual friend Christa. Got that? The story probably makes more sense at Daily Kos, except they have me living in Portland (where Christa lives). Not that I’d mind living in Portland, of course… All this came together through the Obama Craft Project, anyway.
An Obama pin I made is posted on Daily Kos
