IMMEDIATE RELEASE

1. Little things like this make a difference. United we're strong, divided we fall.

3. I would have loved him to come here and be ignored.
There should be a law against a sitting Senator collecting money for signing autographs. He'll have plenty of time to do that after his term. Koester is putting his butt on the line. I would imagine if Bunning decided to pursue it, he'd have a good civil case for breach of contract.
