Silky Selling Family Recipes For Campaign Funds

Dang, but this seems kinda desperate, to me.

John Edwards is having his mama and a few other Dems sell their precious family recipes for campaign dollars.

From Campaign Emails:

Dear Friend,

This is John’s mom, Bobbie. I just wanted to send a quick note from our family to yours to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

John’s dad and I have been out on the campaign trail with him this past week, listening to him talk about change. I couldn’t agree more that we need big change in America today. But at Thanksgiving, it’s nice to take some time to think about all that we have to be thankful for — and to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

And, this Thanksgiving, Elizabeth and I, along with David Bonior and his wife Judy, and Joe Trippi and his wife Kathy, from John’s campaign team, want to share our favorite Thanksgiving recipes with you.

As a member of our campaign family, If you donate just $20.08 (for the year we’ll elect my son the next president of the United States!), I’ll send you Elizabeth’s recipe for bread pudding, David and Judy Bonior’s recipes for “Sweet Potatoes with Apples” and “Mushroom Soup,” along with Joe and Kathy’s recipe for “Old Fashioned Down on the Farm Country Stuffing” — and my own special recipe for one of John’s favorites, Mac n’ Cheese!

You know a recipe I’d like to see? I like to see their recipe for Humble Pie.

And I’d like to see the entire Democratic party eat it when they lose big in ’08 because of their cynical, terrorist-enabling policies.

Well, well, well…wonders never cease:

I get my first Hot Air link for this goofy post!

Hiya, Hot Air readers. Welcome to the “kid’s table”.

Project Valour IT

Nice Deb has joined the Air Force Team of bloggers raising money for Project Valour It, which helps provide voice-controlled and adaptive laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines recovering from severe injuries at major medical centers.

Funds collected, as of today, here.

The goal is $240,000, and we’ve still got a ways to go.

Here’s the PayPal link if you want to help out.

I’m still trying to find a way to put a link button to the Project Valour IT site on my left sidebar, but so far it’s not cooperating.

UPDATE ( November 20):

Good news from Soldiers Angels, New York:

The 3rd Annual Project Valour-IT Fundraising Competition has come to an end. While the total of checks has not yet been reported, the expectation is that the total will be over $200,000.

Thanks much to everyone who contributed.

Kos Kids Support The Troops, YAY!

Now that the toughest, and most grueling, part of the war is over, (when moral support from America was so crucial), and we’ve all but declared victory in Iraq…. Some lefties are jumping on board to “support the troops”.

Watch, as the Kos Kids show us “Wingers” how it’s done:

Today, I’m calling all kossacks with an invitation to show the wingers how to walk the walk by supporting the troops with some good old fashioned care packages. It’s a great way to support those men and women who will not be home for the holidays and sending care packages to the troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan is easier than most folks realize. So, here’s some specific information on where to find soldiers to support, what to send, and the ins and outs of mailing care packages overseas. I promise, it’s easier than you think and you’ll feel wonderful walking away from that post office counter.

That’s mighty magnanimous of them, since they consider the troops to be moral retards.

I’m sure the troops will love all the Noam Chomsky Books, and patchouli they send them.

You want to know how lefties really support the troops?

“Noose” Hysteria Hits High School Level

A discussion about the best knots to use to tie up drum equipment led two Lee’s Summit West High School boys to be suspended for 10 days, and their parents are fuming.

There apparently had been some racial tension in the Band, specifically on the drum line, when both black and white kids were using the “n” word. The band director told them to stop.

They did, but the noose talk landed the kids in big trouble:

Travis Grigsby loves playing drums, but he and his friend Alex Coday weren’t able to play for two weeks after they were suspended. It started after the band’s performance at a football game. Some kids on the drum line said they were talking about the best knots to use to tie up the drum equipment.

“Someone asked if anybody knew how to tie a noose and Travis did admit he knew how to tie a noose,” Kim Grigsby said.

Travis’ mom said her son is almost an Eagle Scout, he knew how to tie it, but told his friends he wouldn’t because you could get in trouble for that. Later, a black student on the drum line told the teacher he was offended.

“Travis was accused of using a racial slur for saying the word ‘noose.’ Then he was suspended for 10 days,” Kim said.

She said the school district accused the boys of having a racially charged conversation about nooses, but Travis and Alex insist that’s not what happened.

“I don’t feel they let Alex or Travis tell their side of the story,” Kim said.

Alex’s parents wrote to the district saying this is pushing the kids apart instead of bringing them together. Other kids and parents agree.

So do I.

“We just want what’s fair for our boys,” Kim said. “They’re good boys, get good grades, participate in school activities.”

The school did shorten the kids’ school suspension to only five days, but it will affect their grades.

“They are being punished beyond what is even near reasonable,” Kim said.

The school district isn’t commenting on the case because of privacy issues, but says no one is aware of any racial tensions at their school.

UPDATE:

Kim Grigsby visited my blog, November 22, and left the following comment:

This kid that felt threatened by my son, does throw the race card daily and does scream “POOP” daily. He has also been suspended for dropping the “F” bomb to girls at school and just last week was given a 3 day suspension for assaulting a white student and in that case he dropped the “MF” bomb. Now where is consistency at that school? Not only is this just unreal that my son received a 10 day suspension, but this black kid got 3 days for assault. HMM…

Political correctness run amuck…that’s what this is.

Greetings Betsy’s Page and Bay Area Riders readers.
