John McCain will speak at McCoart Complex at Saturday, October 18 at 2:00 p.m.

Prince William VA, 22192

Supervisor Stewart has sent emails out to many constituents announcing this rally:

I wanted to make sure you received an invite to join our next President, John McCain, at a rally in Prince William County this Saturday at 2 p.m. (doors open at 1 p.m). Senator McCain’s time is a precious resource, and his presence in Prince William reinforces our status as a key battleground county.

Traffic is supposed to be a bear so if you don’t have to be in the area, don’t be.

Once again Prince William County is the rally site for a presidential hopeful. Long ignored in presidential races, Virgina is a battle ground state during this election cycle as both candidates and their running mates hope to acquire the holy grail of all elections: President of the United States.

Prince William has been particularly blessed with a visit from both candidates. We were Obama’s first stop once he accepted the nomination of his party.

Will voters turn Virginia blue? Will Prince William be the pivotal county in the presidential race? With all the attention we have received, it is becoming more evident that we are more than just a blip on the radar. I wonder why that is?

It’s hard to be humble with this much attention.

    I rather enjoyed how the Chairman started out with “Friends”. What about the my part?

    You got one too? I’ll show up in a pig’s costume in bright red lipstick….if I have nothing else to do…like counting the hairs on my head and indexing the blades of grass on my front lawn.

    Oh Slither, you know he meant to say ‘mis amigos,’ in honor of National Hispanic Month but he just couldn’t. Might piss off some of his peeps.

    Will the Equestrian Unit be working this event? We know how much some love that unit. I wouldn’t go within 15 miles of that place tomorrow.
    Moon-howler-
    Mis Amigos it is.

    Does the upside-down sign signal distress?

    Carrying over a discussion from the previous thread…

    The old McCain sense of decency returned last night when he spoke at charity function in New York City with Obama also present. I didn’t see the whole speech but at the end he said, “I don’t want this to leave this room but…” and then preceded to say really great things about Obama in a sincere way.

    Perhaps it is just an act when McCain is encouraging fear and hatred toward Obama, perhaps it is just politics, ugly politics being forced upon him by the Karl Rove strategists that he unfortunately hired.

    I find it really striking that he said “I don’t want this to leave this room.” It felt like a wink, wink, nudge, nudge, to let mainstream American know that he isn’t really such a bitter and resentful fear-monger, it’s just the role he’s been forced to play, trapped between the extreme right wing base of his party, and the rest of the nation that is moving toward the vision imparted by Obama.

    I wonder if the media will make anything of that. As I said before though, I really hope McCain can speak to the rabid weirdos who still support him and calm them down before something awful happens.

    Censored, ha-ha! Funny funny.

  8. Yeah, Stewart sent me one, too. He didn’t send me one for Obama, though. I just love how he selectively invites people to his choice meetings. Surprised he didn’t spend our money to send out postcards this time.

  9. Moon-howler

    Censored, that was hilarious! Good one. I think you might be on to something.

    Here’s why McCain has to campaign in PWC this weekend: Obama is +8 over McCain in PWC! If Obama wins Prince William, he wins VA.

    “I just picked up my tickets. Hopefully I’ll see you all there. ”

    Hope in one hand….lol

  14. Moon-howler

    Alanna, not a chance you will see me there. What happens if your kids let the air out of your tires?
