Reminder: Duncan BBQ Tomorrow Night


Just a reminder, folks, that Congressman Jimmy Duncan is hosting his family's BBQ Tuesday evening at the Knoxville Coliseum. The event starts at 5:30 and lasts until 8:30 P.M.

Jimmy asked me last Thursday to remind everyone to come. (Not that attendance is ever a problem; it seems that everyone in Knox and Blount Counties shows up for the free grub.) I don't think President Bush will be joining us this time (as he did in 2000), but I'm sure that some surprise guests will make their way to the festivities.

Besides, you should come just for the reason of thanking Congressman Duncan for remaining the only Tennessee Congressman to sign on to support the Fair Tax. He spoke highly of the system last Thursday in South Knox, and he even successfully tied our failing current tax system in with illegal immigration. Kudos for that, Jimmy.

I remember attending this event long ago. I learned one of my first political lessons here:

Run for Congress. Invite everyone for free BBQ and bluegrass music. Win election.

It's a winning formula that every prospective Tennessee politician should note. It's certainly a better campaign tactic than committing career suicide at someone else's press event.

Are Tennesseans really that cluless? I've only lived here 10 years so I give your opinion much credence.

But then I've often wondered how Duncan keeps getting re-elected. He never seems to support anything to help the vast majority of citizens in district 2.
