GRITtv host Laura Flanders will join us for the Fighting Bob Fest Kickoff on Friday night, September 10, at the Barrymore in Madison. There was a time when the Kick-off welcomed just a few speakers and a chance to raise some money and promote the the next day's Fest. Now we have quite a kick-off program--Greg Palast, Laura Flanders, Jim Hightower, Thom Hartmann, Senator Russ Feingold and more. Plan to get to the Barrymore early! And like the old days, we will pass the bucket, so bring some cash.
I will join you for a beer. Better yet, let's give Hightower the first crack at buying a beer.
Elizabeth Warren, please! We want her to be the consumer advocate so, Mr. President, give us a break. Appoint her now!
The oil has disappeared! Huzzah!
Whew! Mother Nature has apparently been hired by BP. One day we were anticipating a long-term disaster, but the oil has magically disappeared! Where did it go? Don't bother asking questions. Just come to the shore and enjoy. As for BP's pledge to clean up--they will, of course, if there is anything to clean up!
Bob Fest: Lots of calls for tables at Fighting Bob Fest; money starting to trickle in, volunteers signing up. We need you loud and clear. Hate to imagine the Tea Party claiming the progressive banner in Wisconsin--not gonna happen!
