"... with comedy!"
Yes, that was the headline of the press release we received from Earl's office hyping his upcoming stand up comedy night.
Apparently Oregon's Congressional representative hosts an annual comedy night, sharing the stage with other local politicians. But this year's event this Monday November 9th at the Tiffany Center downtown will have an extra bitter tinge to it, what with all the death panel hysteria around Earl's end-of-life care policy.
If you're one of those two or three people with 100 extra dollars lying around, it might be worth throwing them toward a ticket for three reasons:
1. David Bragdon will be doing stand up comedy.
2. Lynn Peterson will be doing stand up comedy.
3. None of the "jokes" are vetted.
"It will either be really really funny or it will be disastrously unfunny," says Blumenauer's spokesman Willie Smith.
