Spose Oswego has any armored personnel carriers? Horses? Free speech zones?

Where Is Our Roving Boy Tonight? 06.Feb.2004 16:55

Not Again

Ummmm. Can't wait to talk to an amoral college dropout with a mean streak a mile long. $5,000? What a bargain! Since Rove was not elected and is only a Presidential advisor, I don't think he gets a motorcade or secret service protection. Perhaps he will be stuck in 217 rush hour traffic!

NLG Has Been Notified 06.Feb.2004 17:38


NLG will be notified to have legal observers.

This is in the Kruse Way area - lotsa private property there, but lotsa sidewalks to line with protesters so everyone driving there gets the message that the propaganda minister Rove (probably the one who leaked the name of the CIA operative to the media) is not welcome.

March or February? 06.Feb.2004 19:39

Lincoln Day Dinner

Past and present GOP Lincoln Day Dinner/Fundraisers are/have been held on or around Presidents' Day. That means February. Can someone clear this up? Verify Feb or March?

can anybody show up for this 06.Feb.2004 21:13

Republican event?

or is it just reserved for White Trash only? With Karl "White Trash" Rove being there, you'd best be sure you
are lilly-white if ya plan to go, and it helps if you talk like a dumbassed Texan too!

March or February? 06.Feb.2004 22:27


The Oregon Republican Party's calendar doesn't list March yet, and there's nothing about this event listed for February 11. Maybe they just haven't updated the site yet.

Mannix, Smith, Walden, and Rove - holy lord! I'm going to be sucking all their cocks! Yum! If I can just get a little of their DNA in me, I'll finally be a full fledged republican.
