Northern Virginia News: "... the money has dried up ..."

Tonight was a Halloween fun fair/PTA fundraiser at the elementary school. The halls are bustling with hundreds parents and kids in costume. Apparently Star Wars characters are very popular this year. In any case, as I’m wending my way from the Cake Walk to the Potty Pitch, I overhear a conversation of a political nature in the hall between two parents. They had to speak rather loudly to hear one another with all the hubbub. They were right behind me. This is in the deepest, darkest pits of the Blue Northern Virginia suburbs. I don’t have a context and this just a summary (though “the money has dried up” is a quote).

He: How is your Democratic thing going?

She: Oh, its going slow … the money has dried up … it’s going to be horrible. Imagine what it will be like with the McDonald or whatever his name is…

Again, no context, but some interesting questions…
