President Bush and George Allen in Mt. Vernon Wednesday
Eric Lundberg, Chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee has sent around information reminding us that the President will be making a joint appearance in the Mt. Vernon area late this afternoon as part of a fundraising event.Â
Eric reports that “ground zero” (I would have used a different term) will be at the intersectionÂ of Mt. Vernon Memorial Highway and Ferry Landing Road.Â The President is expected to arrive between 1645 and 1730 this afternoon.Â Â Eric alsoÂ reports that Democrats are planning aÂ counter-demonstration (not clear whether it’s against Bush,Â Allen, both of them, or all of us).Â
If you can get away, try to be there.
UPDATE:Â apparently this was a bi-partisan event, with almost as many Ds as Rs out to show their support for Senator Allen and the President (that IS what the D’s were there for, isn’t it?).Â The blog world was well represented with such luminaries as NLS and Kenton Ngo (Kenton videotaping furiouslyÂ – Kenton, lightning won’t strike twice).Â The Post apparently will run a story tomorrow. Apparently a good time was had by all, especially the lovely Dem lady who invited one of our stalwarts to “Go to Hell, “Â sophisticated political discourse that until recently, apparently, was the sole property of our commenter MOM.Â The Dems seem to be trying to beat us at our own crass game. I say keep them out of such longshoreman talk and leave it for us to use on each other.
