No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

Gore and the Nashville Parks Department teaming up to save Gore’s heinie

by @ 12:45 on June 20, 2008. Filed under Global "Warming", Politics - National.

This just popped in the inbox from Americans for Prosperity, who are putting on the Hot Air Tour exposing the economic nightmare that is “Global Warming” (there will be a stop at Miller Park July 26)…

FYI breaking news from our team on the ground in Nashville. The Nashville Parks Department is denying us permission to launch the balloon, citing the fact that our permit says balloon rides but not specifically the word “launch.” This despite the fact that we have explained to them on the phone multiple times our precise flight plan and before today there was no indication that there was a problem or any defect in our permit. Clearly, Gore is calling in favors to stop the embarrassing visual and negative coverage surrounding our event and ratcheting up the beating he is taking over his home energy use. Please post about this on blogs and pass this information along to allies. Thanks.

Nothing like using dirty pool to protect oneself from ridicule over a house that is the very definition of hypocrisy.

Revisions/extensions (3:00 pm 6/20/2008) – More info from AFP’s blog (thanks Erik Telford)…

Roy Wilson at the Nashville Parks Department must not have liked our earlier post, since he just completely revoked our permit — even though his department’s own rules state that he can’t do that unless we break a law or one of the department’s rules, which we haven’t done and have no intention of doing. Then he hung up on our legal counsel.

In the meantime, good news to report — we’ve secured a private location for this afternoon’s event. We’ll be in a field at the corner of Sneed and Vaughn Roads — just about a mile and a half from the original event location….

If you’re in the neighborhood, head over there. Do also stop in at AFP’s blog for Chris Muir’s answer to the Nashville Parks Department.

R&E part 2 (6:50 am 6/21/2008) – Turned off the computer too early yesterday, but AFP got the balloon off the ground. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
