I Love You, Wisconsin
Wisconsin man endorses Kerry in wife's obit
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Send no flowers to commemorate Jane Buffett's death, her husband asks. Instead, send John Kerry to the White House.What a wonderful tribute. Here's a link to one of them (scroll down to Buffett, Jane Burrows).
In a paid obituary published in Madison's two daily newspapers, Roger Buffett celebrated his wife's years as a mother, homemaker, grandmother and English teacher. But, he said, she was "outraged" by President Bush's decision to invade Iraq and then expecting "her grandchildren to pay the bills." Other Bush administration policies angered her as well.
And yes, I will be canvassing again tomorrow in Wisconsin, wherever they send me (will think of you, Jane), then coming back and registering voters here in our last big push.
Off again on a victory lap around the internet. We all know, don't we, that it won't last. Rove is cooking up something, you can be very sure.
