Thank you for again posting something negative in this thread.

The phrase you are looking for is "hijacking a thread".

Great report and pictures! It was fun yesterday, and thanks to the manager at Borders for figuring out how to pipe the radio show throughout the store so everyone could hear. That, along with making new conservative acquaintances made waiting pleasant. Angelwood's buttons make great calling cards for FR. Everyone seemed to want one! Sean is a great guy -- he sincerely greeted each and every one whose book he signed. When I asked him if he had FR in one of his browser windows on his laptop, he said, "Yes!" Thanks, Sean, for standing by conservative principles is such a forthright manner. That takes courage in this day and time. BTW, dinner at Maggiano's was great, too!

I look forward to seeing whoever can make it Sunday at Kristinn's.

Thanks so much for the report! I've been listening to Sean's live broadcast book signings and it's been really great to hear an audience respond to his show. He should go live more often. :) The eyewitness details are much appreciated!

Question - I didn't get to hear much of the show yesterday, just about a half hour while Laura Ingraham was on, but I did hear mention of Marty and cheers for him - was he there, did they actually bring him down to DC, or were they just practicing greeting him as a group for trashing the lines? I know Sean was disapointed that Marty declined the limo to pick him up for the NYC signing so I thought it might be possible that they actually flew Marty down to DC, but I couldn't tell from the little bit I heard.

I hope he comes to KS...lol.

I didn't find those comments upsetting. Freepers do fight a lot. I don't care if someone says that. It didn't mean he didn't like FR when we stop fighting and get some work done...:).....as he clearly showed at the signing that he does.

Well, he won't be coming anywhere near here.

It is funny that when people sign books they always skip flyover country, despite the fact that we have more in common with conservative authors than people in NYC.

I arrived at 4PM. The line was so long that I didn't reach the signing table until 6:15. A gentleman in line next to me who had to leave to make a funeral at 7:00 trusted me to deliver his two signed copies to him; I will do this tomorrow.

I wonder how many at a Clinton book signing could be similarly trusted?

Clinton to Carvile: Hey Jim, what are you doin' with two extra copies of mah book?

Carvile: Dis gah in dah line gave me de books an axed me to bring him da books latah.

Clinton: Jim, let's sell 'em and pay for a 'ho!

Carville: Good idea!

YES!! Good point. See how everyone stood in line? Try that with self-important liberal Yuppies in my Dupont Circle neighborhood and you'll never get to the front of the line.

I have a *great* story about Bob Schaeffer of CBS news, who some times gets his lunch at the same place I have my lunch, and line-butting. Don't forget to ask me about it sometimes.

Test for whether someone's a liberal or conservative:
Do you believe in democracy? Then you know that no matter how important you are, you have to wait your turn in line.
Do you believe in your own self-importance and power over your fellow citizens: then you are a liberal but you better not try to cut in front of me!

Seab just HAD to have Lanny Davis with him.....and when I heard him saying what a great guy Bill Press was, I turned the radio off.

After 28 years of waking up to WMAL, I no longer listen in the morning. I cannot start the day with Beeel Press. I sure enjoyed listening to Sean though. Great reports, FReepers.

I love your BUMP.

It was a wonderful experience to be in a place where the conservatives cheerfully gathered to listen to Sean Hannity and his guests and patiently waited to get their copies of Sean's book signed. Courtesy was in abundance. And, while it may have looked at times like people were cutting into line, the reality was that some of those waiting had to go on bathroom breaks, smoke breaks, trips outside to put quarters in the parking meter or just take a short walk to stretch. Three or four hours is a long time to stand in a line (but it was worth it!).

It was a treat to find out that one of the men waiting in line near us had attended the large protest that the DC Chapter organized outside the VP's mansion during the 2000 election fiasco. He recounted his experience and said he kept the sign that he used that day. He was fun to talk to and told some funny jokes to pass the time.

A woman a few feet in front of him heard us talking and asked if we were FReepers. We asked her where she heard about FReepers and she told us she was a big Rush Limbaugh fan and heard him talking about meeting FReepers one day on his radio show -- that was when some of us attended his brother, David's, book party. Coincidentally, she is in real estate and travels Massachusetts Avenue frequently. She told us she saw the protesters outside Cheney's House and drove up and down the street honking her horn and holding her BUSH/CHENEY sign out the window. I remember seeing people do that and they really fired up the crowd.

We invited everyone with whom we talked to check out Free Republic and to join us next month when we freep Hillary's next fundraiser.

ironman is good at linking pics. Call him up and get his butt out of bed........just joking. Thanks for the college try. The captions have piqued my interest.

Ironman's in training for Hawaii, so waking him would have been a not good thing, I think. Anyway I got it figured out, eventually.

I didn't see anything on FR about people going but I should have known better. Can you please add me to your ping list?

I've been rather apolitical for the the past two years and I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE!!!

I've put you on the DC Chapter ping list. You'll find that we keep pretty busy, lots of opportunities around this area.

Apolitical for two years? We'll fix that for you.

Why did the DC Chapter of Free Republic refuse to let their pictures be used in the montage shown at the Free Republic Network Conference that was just held in Las Vegas?

If your question hasn't already been answered on the Network thread (I think anymouse made some comments along similar focus) by the time I get around to catching up (again) with the posts there, maybe I'll have a few words to share.

There's a picture you have here that I'd like to copy. May I make a copy of it?

Most of us who take pictures for the DC Chapter copyright our work to make it less likely that someone will misuse our work, or use it to enrich themselves in some way. It also gives us some firm legal footing for those unfortunate situations. Because you're such a new person to FR, I know nothing of your history (here and elsewhere), and the fact that I have never met you in person, I believe that I'd have to say no. For my own personal and professional protection. Thanks for asking.

Well done Warlord, et. al. See you Sunday for the cell meeting.

Do some wrist strengthening exercises before Sunday. BufordP is going to teach us the secret handshake, and FreeTheHostages is going to teach us how to use big words to our strategic advantage.

Relax, FTH. Enjoy your notoriety as the woman whose keyboard is licensed as a deadly weapon. I see you had it on full auto earlier. I was at work all day, and found I have a lot of catching up to do. ;-)

Yes, but unfortunately it is only conservatives who are buying these books. "Preaching to the choir", so to speak. What conservatives need is for "closet conservatives" (i.e., some rare Hollywood or sports types) to stick their heads out and start writing some great works. Aaahhh, what a pipedream, eh?

Actually RFP, my daughter was doing some recon in the bookstore while we were watching Sean's show and waiting in line. She said that there were a bunch of people who were trying to shop for books and CDs who didn't know who Sean was; but as they pretty much had to listen to what he was saying (speakers throughout store piped Sean into every corner), she noticed some people were saying that he sounded pretty good... new converts perhaps? Let's hope, for the sake of our country.

You must be keeping pretty busy with Jay Wolfe's campaign lately. Working on a campaign is long, and tiring work; but when he wins it will all be worthwhile! Thank you for all you're doing in and for WV, RFP. We do miss you when you're not able to come to some of the DC Chapter events; and we love seeing you when we do meet up (last one on Whitehaven was great, wasn't it?)

I checked this out last night while I was waiting for pics to upload online, and you are on the ping list. Right between RabidRalph and FRlurker, some other strong DC Chapter women. The DC Chapter - Strong women, good looking men, etc. And this isn't even Minnesota. ;-)

I'm so far behind, I don't know if I'll ever catch up.

About GWV's jet-ski... I hope it wasn't in his truck when the DC cops lost it...

But from what I have read here lately (and I'm durn far behind), I think maybe he already traded it in on a shared ownership (with BufordP) in a Yugo. I could be wrong.

It is not called a secret handshake, it is known as the "grip." Also required is the secret sign of recogniton.

BufordP has his work cut out for him.

CAMPAIGN UPDATE: I was with Jay Wolfe last evening at the Jefferson County Fair as he met and greeted people. This went VERY well as people were receptive to the issues. County level organization continues statewide. I have been asked to expend my role from Berkeley County Coordinator to eastern panhandle campaign coordinator: five county region of Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan, Mineral, and Hampshire counties. We have activists in these counties and 66% of counties statewide. Please drop me a FReepmail if you can help. This is TOTAL guerilla-style grassroots!

PS: Look for a professional revision of the website, www.jaywolfe.net, within the next couple of weeks.

Isn't that interesting? I wonder if the manager of some tow lot, annoyed that he was ordered to give up your truck, might have done some self-help compensation.

Have you reported the theft to John McCaslin? He might be interested in the story. And it should not be too hard to track down a jet ski in a D.C. area pawn shop.

Yes, I got my book signed during the 20 minutes between his arrival and the start of the show. My son and I had arrived 2 hours early, (But we were not the first ones there!) I was third in line followed by my son, who was ecstatic at meeting not only Hannity but Mark Levin as well. Unfortunately, we were not able to stick around for the show and the positive freeping of Hannity, but it sounds like the DC Chapter gave him a great welcome.

I could hear my words echoing up and down the street off the buildings as I finished by saying, "You should be ashamed of yourself, Lanny Davis," so folks on the sidewalk would know who was being told off. It was a beautiful thing, LOL!"
