From Jim Gilliam's blog archives2004 Republican Convention Scheduled in NYC around 9/11 anniversary
April 21, 2003 10:21 PM
The Republicans have scheduled their convention in NYC around the 9/11 anniversary. This is the latest their convention has ever been. The Bush campaign is going to spend $200 million primarily on television ads; twice as much as the 2000 campaign. He is running unopposed in the primaries.
So with $200 million and a 9/11 lovefest in NYC what might the Bush message be?
Oh I dunno. If you don't vote for Bush you're supporting the terrorists?
Nah. Couldn't be.
UPDATE (9/8/03): It's not too early to start planning for the massive protests that will overtake NYC opposing the exploitation of a national tragedy. Start organizing at counterconvention.org.
