This diary is short. I just had an idea I'd like to throw out there. This mainly directed at fellow Kossacks living here in Hastert Country, but if anyone from out of the district wants to come and join the fun, you would be obviously be welcome.

At the end of the month, on Sunday, October 29. The Sycamore Pumpkin Day Parade will happen in Sycamore, IL. Last year Denny Hastert was in it (as was Ruben Zamora, the presumed Dem nominee at the time). As of this writing I don't know if Speaker Fatass is planning on being in it this year or not, but there's something I'd like to do if he does. Very simply this: construct a giant rubber stamp with the words Hello, Mr. Speaker on it.

Anyone out there like this idea or have any ideas of their own on how the Speaker should be greeted in Sycamore?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    ...with the Pumpkin Festival and I can tell you that signs or props aren't gonna work. Simple "boo-ing" works well. Except when ABC/ESPN broadcasts fake cheers, it's the boos people remember when Cheney or Bush throw out the first pitch at baseball games. The crowd's done that primarily to Dems who appear, but this year might be very different. It's also entirely possible that NO candidates will be in the parade, as I recall the festival committee was, at one point, considering leaving political parties out of the parade because they weren't a non-profit organization. But then if they did that, they couldn't let huge crowd-pleasers like the big tow-truck "train" from Lovett's, the giant hot rod shopping cart from Jewel or Ronald McDonald in, either.
    Because of security concerns, the committee won't know for certain if Denny will show up until the day of the parade, and then you'll see snipers on the top of the old Henderson's Department store which now is City Hall.

      Well, I guess that takes care of that.

      Oh well, like I said, it was just a thought....
