    Thanks, gang over here. I was also on CBS News and Fox (REALLY scary).

    What I learned: We need to stay on message, we need to stay on message, we need to not let the personal attacks on Cindy distract us (or her) from the real issue:

    BUSH LIED. He needs to tell us the truth.

    And where is that exit strategy???

    Come to DC September 24-26. We need a million or more here. I am quite serious.

    Come here.

    Stand up.

    It’s CRITICAL.

    My friend Mario is planning to come to DC. It doesn’t look good for me to make it, but if I do–got floor?

  3. karendc says:

    always got floor…

  4. karendc says:

    …also couch…

  5. Karen

    Couch is better than floor! Will try… would love to finally meet Dick!

  6. kj says:

    Karen, good luck. I won’t be able to come, either.

    Pamela, Karen’s Dick is a major cutie. The glasses alone… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Laughing out loud!

    Just read the WaPo piece, awesome lady Karen!

  9. Pamela you might actually be coming to DC? I’ve been thinking I’ll probably make it down for that weekend. If you’ll be there it’s a definite. I got cheated in NH not getting to meet you!

    My son has an apartment in a great location; 5 blocks from the white house(yech currently) and about 3 blocks from Lincoln memorial, Vietnam memorial etc. If you’ll be down, I’m sure you can crash with us there too if needed(couch or inflatable bed, your choice).
