5. Shaddap, fish
Been to the GOP stronghold of Arizona.

Been to the GOP stronghold of Colorado.

Been to the GOP stronghold of New Hampshire.

Been to the GOP stronghold of Montana.

Been to the fuckin' belly of the GOP beast in Texas.

Florida? Pfft. Wimps.

P.S. I haven't come to Florida yet because no one in Florida has arranged to have me come to Florida. I don't just *show up* places, ya know.

P.P.S. Hint hint.

P.P.P.S. Dolphins = my poop.

7. God yeah...
Will got off easy coming to Austin. Dallas has a nasty haze of evil black rethug karma hanging over it like a funeral shroud. *shudder*

10. Then send me a link to someone who has a link
to someone associated with you who has a link, to get advice on how to get you to Central Florida.

The University of Central Florida has a pretty progressive community and I'm sure we can arrange the event. I'll talk to DU'er TRoosevelt and TAIS about it...(They attend UCF) and see what they can come up with...)

BUT seriously... Who do I reach out to to get this moving?

BTW: We can arrange it around the Pat's/Phins game and I'll throw a big ass football party... ;-)

44. Heh, come to Northeast Florida
It's GOP headquarters. The City Council, Mayor, Sheriff, Business Community, State Representatives, National Representatives, Attorney General, et al are Republican. Jacksonville is where George Bush and Jeb Bush really mopped the floor with the Dems.

And don't get me started on our paper...

8. Cool! I'll be there (Asheville)!
The Unitarian church is about five blocks from where I live. If you need directions or anything, let me know!!!

BTW, you gotta check out our downtown, Will!! Malaprops Bookstore is worth the effort alone.

he's just a little out of pocket the next day or two. He'll likely post a thread explaining the whole thing when he gets back.

15. Normally, I would...
dish the dirt (it's exciting news and he seems awfully happy) but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be keeping it all a secret or not. I'm an idiot and forgot to ask if it had been declassified yet. :-)

You're just gonna have to hang on til he gets back home. Sorry.

21. Man, I wish we could get you to come to Tennessee Tech in Cookeville
They had Molly Ivins speak a few years back, and I believe we're overdue for our next liberal firebrand. But I'm no longer affiliated with the university and therefor couldn't arrange anything. But damn, I'd sure buy you enough drinks to give you a death-dealing hangover that would have you cursing my name. I'd even let you dance with my girlfriend, and I don't say that lightly, hehe.

If you're ever headed to Nashville or Knoxville, give us Tennessee DUers a heads up.
