Well, looks like everyone will know either tonight or tomorrow morning about the location of the Stumptown War-Criminal Love Fest on Friday the 13th.
I went over to the campaign office in Beaverton/Tigard out by Washington Square Mall. Event tickets will be given out starting at 8am Thursday to folks who have pre-applied. That's tomorrow. So just in case the information isn't handy, here it is again:
Bush-Cheney Campaign Headquarters
10250 SW Greenburg Road
Suite 112 (Building 4)
Portland, OR 97223
I went in and politely asked if it was possible to get an invitation in light of the mainstream media announcements that it was an invitation-only event for business owners. They said just sign-up on their forms and take your chances. They had the forms right there. They also said the previously announced "invitation-only to business owners" format was not correct. So anyway, I signed up.
The office is continuing to take invitation applications until 6:30 pm today. They said the information would be subject to a background check. You have to give your name, address, phone, SS and date-of-birth.
Would it not be recommended that other anti-Bush people who don't care about the background checks (and have a shot at passing) go in wearing clean casual / business clothes and sign-up for tickets? I mean, even if we got ONE PASSIONATE PERSON into the event, wherever it is, and that individual made a point to ask a pointed question or cause a non-violent ruckus, wouldn't that be worth it?
I know there isn't much chance of it happening, but if I somehow get an invite, you can bet that you'll hear about me on the news later that day.
So come on people, take a chance, go to the office, don't snarl too much, and put in your name --- if you dare.
Either way, everyone should finally know the venue location tonight/early tomorrow.
Let's make it a visit Shrub will never forget!
