Gravel Hits the Concord Big Time

Concord, NH -

Chris Dodd's not the only one hyping Red Sox baseball, and Draft Gore's not the only one taking out full page ads these days. On page B3 of today's Concord Monitor, a Mike Gravel supporter has purchased the entire page to tout the candidacy of the former Alaska Senator.

At the top of the ad it says this:

"The Red Sox and Patriots used to be underdogs, too"

Then at the bottom is says, "Root for" and shows a waving pennant with the words "Mike Gravel" written upon it.

The fine print at the bottom encourages people to e-mail or telephone a man named Gregory to receive their free Gravel yard sign.

This advertisement comes as the Senator begins his first New Hampshire trip in ages. He will be in the Granite State for a few events this weekend tied to climate change and independent voters. So there you have it, folks, Gravel isn't just in it to embarrass the frontunners at the debates. He's in it to win it!

I am interested in reading your report about the clean air-cool planet conference. Write soon.

I too will be interested in hearing about the conference.

More importantly yet, I'll be VERY interested in hearing all the zingers from arguably the four wittiest candidates. Richardson. Kucinich. Gravel. HUCKABEE. The latter two are also the most prone to mocking and scorning fellow candidates, which is always welcome. I'd love to see them go head to head. They could both use the publicity. Heck, if that were a pay-per-view event, I'd put down $40 for it.

Biden's fun, too--but in more of a blowhard kinda way. A likable blowhard, but nonetheless.

Excellent! One-on-one debate between Huckabee and Gravel!!!!

Any Democrat who found his/herself rejoicing at the news of Gravel being banned from NBC's Oct. 30th debate needs to take a long hard look in the mirror, as they obviously are not in concert with the tenets of their own political persuassion.
Mike Gravel is a dreamboat Democratic presidential candidate.
Hillary and Obama offer nothing but pleonastic, platitudinous hot trash.
