MS Dems Press Conference on the Oxford Square

For all the media in town, and for all the locals who want to show their support for a progressive future for America (which is our only hope at this point, honestly), thought I'd pass along the following item.
OXFORD (Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2008) – Mississippi Democrats will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 24, to highlight how Republican presidential nominee John McCain’s stand on the Iraq war has cost us at home.

The news conference will be on the east side of the Oxford Square next to Oxford City Hall, 107 Courthouse Square.

Mississippi Democratic Party Chairman Jamie Franks will lead the news conference and talk about how McCain’s policies threaten to further harm an economy already in turmoil. Other Democratic Party leaders are expected to attend.
Please do show up. With all of the lowlife tactics being used in the run-up to the debate (specifically, trying to eliminate any visible sign of the - quite substantial, I should add - support for Obama that exists here in Oxford as the national media descends upon the town), it sure would be helpful to have every Obama supporter in town show up and show the world they're here.

    We showed up, and we were trumped by a cheap "bailout" tactic from the McCain folks who got us in this mess in the first place.

    Thank goodness my parents taught me the "money-in-the-mattress" rule.

    ps. I'm currently teaching your children at the Univ. of Miss.

    Well, my feeling is that the whole shebang should have been quicker on its feet, and it should have immediately been re-focused on McCain's ham-fisted attempt at political theater, and how transparent was his cowardice and grandstanding. Then he'd be the one trumped.

    But that's just me. The folks at the podium had their own agenda and for whatever reason, they didn't want to veer from it.

    Someone hollered "McCain's a coward," and I'm of the opinion that should have been the theme of the whole presser.

    Again, that's just me.

    ps. I've been in your shoes, and I empathize (and sympathize).
