As the sun set in Malibu, we hoisted our campaign commode out to the pier to get a full perspective of the ocean as it meets the land. While visitors generally kept to themselves, a few seagulls hovered in the distance signaling their support for our campaign.
Our campaign stop to Venice Beach CA was one to remember. Our crew brought only the commode and Russell’s Presidential suit to an otherwise lovely California day. Having selected our campaign position on the hill not 100 feet from the skate board park and just steps from the cement walk, Russell Hirshon campaigned with his best foot forward.
During our LA campaign stop, Malibu was a special destination. With the annual Chili Festival just down the street, we set up our campaign toilet on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH for those in the know) and sat on the median. Traffic was fast and steady and our support was measured in the honking horns and camera phones that tracked our activities. Even the California Highway Patrol was forgiving as they asked us to vacate the area immediately and without a pat down.
Russell Hirshon campaigned at Dupont Circle, Washington D.C. in the heat of August asking Americans to vote for the candidate of their choice but give to a charity instead of a political campaign. The most amazing aspect of this day was that 3o minutes of sitting on a toilet at Dupont Circle really did not cause any issues, traffic or otherwise.
