I took a stand. While I can't be at the rally, my contribution to Vets for the Truth wasn't cheap.

Isn't time for Max Cleland to disappear? He has a fed job because Pres. Bush took pity on him and gave him one. As for "questioning his patriotism" since he is a leftist human shield, I don't question his "patriotism" - I QUESITON HIS SANITY AND HIS JUDGMENT!!!!! There was no way, the people of Georgia were going to reelect this character.

I will be posting a full report as soon as I get it from our troops, still in PA!!! For now, here are a couple of pics I just received and a quick update...

Word I have received so far is that Murtha is in a lot more trouble there in PA than we anticipated. In addition to the vast amounts of anger expressed about Murtha's abandoning of our troops in Iraq, he is frequently spoken of as being 'too old now' and 'a career politician no longer in touch with us regular people.' People said things like, 'he's not the same John Murtha anymore' and 'what happened to him?

 Those still loyal to Murtha for the 'good he's done over the years' expressed strong concerns that he was no longer doing good and actually doing harm. Many of these visitors to the Boot Murtha booth wanted to know the facts NOW about Murtha so they could decide for themselves how to vote this November 7th.

Aug. 26, 2006... Vets for the Truth / Boot Murtha campaign had its boots on the ground yesterday in Monaca, PA. during the Rolling Thunder (PA Chapter 4) Great Patriot Biker Event. The event was held just outside Monaca on a great strip of land right along Route 18 at the Midway Bar & Grill.

Manning the Boot Murtha booth: (left to right): Roger Hughes, Amanda Doss, Larry Bailey and Nikki Sheppick.

[INFO: Roger Hughes is chairman of Iowa Presidential Watch PAC; Amanda Doss is webmaster for Operation Street Corner (OSC); Larry Bailey is president of Vets for the Truth; Nikki Sheppick is PA District 12 Exec. Director for OSC]

To all: Husband, son and I live in the Johnstown area and plan to be at the Oct. 1 rally and any counter-rally that might be planned for the Cleland/Murtha shindig. Keep us advised and let us know if we can be of any help to those planning to make the trip here.

Great!! Thanks for the kind offer of help!

You post is the "official" report. Here's the rest of the story.

The infallibility of grief, take 2. Of course, Cleland did not actually lose his legs and part of one arm "in the Vietnam War;" he lost them during the war, in a stupid accident: he was hopping out of a helicopter that was taking him and other soldiers on a "beer run," and a grenade slipped either from his own vest or someone else's. He bent over to pick it up, and it exploded. His grievous injuries were not attained in combat; and indeed, none of his decorations were for that incident (he, personally, never claimed they were; but he, personally, also never corrected the record when others claimed Cleland lost his limbs in combat). The meme was launched, not just by the Washington Post but virtually every other newspaper, magazine, and television network: Saxby Chambliss, how dare you question the patriotism of a guy who lost three limbs?

So what does that piece mean?

It means that the folks whining about us "radicals" targeting Murtha will have some ammunition. How Cleland was hurt is absolutely irrelevant. He served his country during wartime. He apparently made a tragic mistake for which he nearly lost his life and did lose much more.

But rather than focus on Murtha, or Cleland's behavior now, some folks want to live in the past. What their motivation is, I don't know.

Here is one--who I am not worthy to tie her shoes--who has stated it LIKE IT IS!

http://mediamatters.org/items/200606090006

On Fox, Coulter further criticized victims -- including Max Cleland and Christopher Reeve -- for using their "personal story": "Just make the argument. Be a man. Step up to the plate."

Summary: On Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter defended her inflammatory attacks on the widows of 9-11 victims -- who she said "enjoy[] their husbands' deaths" and "revel[] in their status as celebrities" -- by attacking other people she accused of using their "personal story" to gather support for a political cause.

In an interview on the June 8 edition of Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter defended the inflammatory attacks in her new book on the widows of 9-11 victims -- who she said "enjoy[] their husbands' deaths" and "revel[] in their status as celebrities" -- by attacking other people she accused of using their "personal story" to gather support for a political cause. Beyond naming the "Jersey Girls" again, referring to the 9-11 widows who pushed for the establishment of the commission to investigate the attacks -- Coulter also singled out Vietnam war veteran and former Sen. Max Cleland (D-GA), a triple amputee who lost his seat to Republican Saxby Chambliss in the wake of a smear campaign attacking his patriotism, and the late actor Christopher Reeve, whom she criticized for "arguing for stem cell -- embryonic stem-cell research -- not adult stem-cell research."

Claiming, "You never see it on the other side" -- that conservatives don't similarly use their "personal stories" as the catalyst for political activism -- Coulter said, "Just make the argument. Be a man. Step up to the plate."

Host Neil Cavuto apparently agreed, saying, "To challenge them almost looks sacrilegious."

Specifically, Coulter falsely denied that some 9-11 victims' relatives promote President Bush and conservative viewpoints. Coulter said, "To the extent you have had any relatives of 9-11 victims on TV [promoting Republicans or conservative views], you've seen them on one time and it's pretty much in response to the Jersey Girls."

In fact, relatives of victims of the attacks repeatedly appeared on television in support of Bush's 2004 re-election campaign and more recently to rally support for other controversial policies, including the administration's warrantless domestic surveillance program. During the opening night of the 2004 Republican National Convention, three relatives of 9-11 victims gave speeches broadcast on national television -- Debra Burlingame, whose brother died in the attacks; and Deena Burnett and Tara Stackpole, who both lost their husbands. On numerous occasions, Burlingame publicly supported Bush's re-election. Following the public disclosure of Bush's warrantless domestic surveillance program, Burlingame defended the program in a February 6 New York Post op-ed and in appearances on the April 3 edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show and on the January 30 edition of Fox News' Hannity & Colmes. Further, a conservative advocacy group, Progress for America, released an ad in October 2004 in support of Bush's re-election titled "Ashley's Story." In the ad, 16 year-old Ashley Faulkner, whose mother died on 9-11, recounted the story of Bush embracing her at a campaign event. Said Faulkner: "He's the most powerful man in the world and all he wants to do is make sure I'm safe, that I'm OK."

Earlier in the interview, Coulter argued that Osama bin Laden is "completely irrelevant" and compared him to an "old celebrity." She also suggested that Rep. John Murtha (D-PA), a vocal critic of the war in Iraq, had not responded to the news of the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. In fact, Murtha had repeatedly appeared on television that afternoon, describing Zarqawi as "a real thorn in the side of the Americans" and calling his death "significant."

I agree that we need to keep focused on the present. Diana Irey won't be elected because John Murtha did or did not deserve a Bronze Star with a V or because Max Cleland did or did not fall on his own grenade. Diana Irey will be elected because she is the better candidate who will serve her constituents with far greater effectiveness than a career politician who has lost his way. She will bring honor to her district.

""Bet our crowd Sunday will be bigger.""

"I hope you're right, but I wouldn't bet money on it."

Oh I would if I gambled. OTOH, is a "sure thing" gambling?

aka: Sept. 30 - Penn State home game :) I didn't check the schedules for Pitt, IUP, St. Francis, etc., and as I recall, a few area high schools still play on Sat. afternoons.

I have no idea who planned this thing on a Saturday morning at 11 am, in the fall, but they obviously don't know the area. ;)
I figure, at best, they might get the same size crowd they did last time - unless it's raining and then they'll be lucky to get anyone. ;)

And I apologise for seeming to fall off the face of the earth, but these days I can't even make plans from one day to the next and that's the way it's shaping up to be for the foreseeable future. :(

If I'm here and if I'm able, I'll be there on the 1st.
