1. I've never been.
We were going to try to go a couple years ago but couldn't find the time.

Now, I can't find the money.

If you do, give us a report!

3. Just heard Bernie Sanders will be there. I may change my mind
but it's a lousy meal, expensive and a long drive, so probably not.

4. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont at the Steak Fry "WHOOO HOOOO"
Edited on Tue Aug-30-11 08:17 PM by IADEMO2004
From Harkin e-mail

I am sending you a quick note to share an exciting update about the upcoming Steak Fry.
I am thrilled to announce that my friend Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont will be joining us at the 34th Annual Harkin Steak Fry. Back in December, Bernie's epic eight-hour Senate oration against extending the Bush tax cuts went viral on the Internet - and soon became the New York Times bestselling book "The Speech: A Historic Filibuster on Corporate Greed and the Decline of Our Middle Class."
While, he won't have time to reprise The Speech - you can count on Bernie to fire things up in short order!

See all y'all there.

5. I'll be there!
DD and I are going. I hope for a huge crowd, since the quitter from Wassilla will be at the same place this weekend.

Ken, you really botched things for Saturday. Please, for the sake of the Tea Party Movement, let someone else handle PR and organizing from now on and STFU!
