( 8:51 AM )
From a Kossack right here in Oregon:
Bush is coming to Medford, Oregon Thursday. John Edwards is here Wednesday morning. Edwards' visit is already sold out. There are tickets available for Bush, even though his visit was planned in advance. This is in republican-leaning rural southern Oregon.
I tried to get tickets to both events. Edwards was sold out, but I could still get them for Bush, provided I:
1. was a registered republican
2. wrote an essay about why he should be president
3. promise to support him
Write an essay? Is the Bush machine so hard up for material that they're asking for submissions now? And like it wasn't hard enough to get into their campaign "rallies" - now you have to actually do schoolwork to get in. No idiot left behind.
In other rally news, John Edwards will be in Portland's Living Room (Pioneer Courthouse Square - the central gathering place in our little downtown) this evening at 5:00 p.m. for a huge rally and then everyone there will watch the debate together. Sometimes (often) I love this city.
