The link to the Idaho GOP calendar shows their Lincoln Day dinners and luncheons extending from February 11th-18th: http://www.idgop.org/view_events.asp?Month=2&Year=2004
Two offhand newspaper columnists' comments about Rove's visit indicated that he would be dropping by around or about Presidents' Weekend.
It's entirely possible that Karl Rove might be speaking TODAY in Lake Oswego. Has anyone checked?
Since the event never showed up on the Oregon GOP website calendar, it's possible that the convenient "announcement" that has been going around is a red herring for nonbelievers.
