Republicans have fun day in Swisher
Republicans participated this morning in Swisher Fun Days. In the photo above, you can see the banner being carried by (L to R) Scott James and his son, Jacob, of Iowa City, and Bob Anderson, of Swisher. They are followed by other Republicans including county supervisor candidates Rich Benn (in the yellow car), Alan Curry (walking with his sign), and Emma Nemecek (and her golf cart).
Swisher gave a warm welcome to all those converging on the charming community, and we had fun, despite the sprinkles of rain during the first part of the parade.
For those of you not familiar with it -- Swisher is Johnson County's northern outpost, just miles from the Linn County border. Signs of growth and young families were everywhere, in this town conveniently located between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.
It was also a treat to be in the heart of a growing RED PRECINCT in Johnson County. Jefferson-West, in which Swisher is located, gave President Bush 54% of the vote in 2004!
So, in honor of the boats, and in repayment for this free publicity, I am encouraging a little creative song-writing in the comments. Come up with some new lyrics to the classic children's song, starting off with the first verse:
Ro, Ro, row your boat . . .
Pelosi, Reid, and Dean
Democrat friends will sink you soon
because they're very mean
Row, row , row your boat
Gently down the stream
Feel sorry for Ro
He's definitely sinking in
with a bunch of PAC checks
special interests ain't for us
re-election hopes are wrecks
If I were Ro I would get a the 394ft. 56ft. Beam, 6 deck, 24-36 guest mega yacht! Now that would leave an impression.
gentlely into a loss,
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Emma will give you the toss.
before it starts to sink,
get PAC money to save your self
praying that you will float.
