Fancy Fred Goes To The Fair

Normally, I don't post such things, but this was too funny not to post.

And this is the same guy who rented a red truck for his candidacy for the Senate.

Oh my. Great start, Freddy Thompson. The man who rides around in a Republican golf cart at a country fair in Ferragamos (albeit it Fixed Noise says they are Gucci) loafers. Gucci's (or Ferragamo's) happen to cost around $315-400 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Dean Pro on John Edwards

The point is about national health care and the need for it. This video is from day #3 of the Iowa bus tour.

I love it when Edwards asks where "Mother" is and how long the Pro's have been married.

Markos on Colbert's Show

This is a riot.


Update: Markos on Charlie Rose here. I think you can view it once for free.

Pics with John Edwards at Yearly Kos

Mona Brooks, one of the official photographers at Yearly Kos, has a set up with JRE and some of us before the break-out session, and from the break-out session too. Yep, I'm in a couple of them, and they aren't the best of me, but I do like the pics because of all of the good people I was with, including John Edwards.

I'm providing a link only as the copyright belongs to Ms. Brooks.


I'll look to see if I'm in other ones as I know she took quite a few of me.


Update: here's one more that I like, which is a group of us at the JRE booth.

The Inspiration for this Blog

My own Benson reminds me of the First Son of our future, soon to be next President, John Edwards. (courtesy of Jackie R, from JRE's blog)

From Iowa..Jack's on the Road again.

Check out this video too.

That's Ed Fallon, a very progressive politician from Iowa, who is introducing JRE. I met him at the campaign kickoff in Iowa back in December.

Good job, JRE...and Jack. He's a smart, but playful kid. Gotta love him.

John Edwards on the Road Again

Today, John and Elizabeth Edwards will be on the road again, this time all week in Iowa. According to Tracy Russo at JRE's blog, they will visit 31 places. In an-email, the campaign reported that they are using B20 biodiesel, a cleaner fuel, to run their bus.

I also read that John will be on C-SPAN tonight. Here's what Serb Hall Celebrator reported on JRE's blog this morning:

John Edwards campaign stop in Iowa tonight will be broadcast LIVE on CSPAN (Monday August 13) at 9 pm ET. On Monday morning's Washington Journal program, CSPAN's upcoming program schedule that scrolls at the bottom of the screen indicated the network plans to televise Edwards' appearance tonight in Iowa. One hour before Edwards, CSPAN's listings indicate they will broadcast an 8 pm ET appearance in New hampshire by Arizona senator JOHN McCAIN so if you tune in and see McCain on your screen, there is a chance the Arizona senator's event went into overtime. For those unable to catch Edwards' initial appearance, check out CSPAN.ORG under the TV Schedules link as CSPAN usually re-airs programming later in the evening and also will re-post content on its website for review.

Excellent, BW readers. We have something to look forward on the teevee instead of the usual summer re-runs.
