WASHINGTON--Presumptive GOP nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) hits Chicago on Monday for high dollar fund-raising on LaSalle Street and a stop in McCormick Place for a speech to the National Restaurant Association with a domestic economic focus. Independent Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut--a McCain backer-- will be with McCain during the visit.

After the speech to the restaurant convention, the campaign confirms McCain heads over to the newly merged Chicago Board of Trade/Merc Exchange where he will walk through the trading floor. He'll then headline a reception hosted by LaSalle Street biggies Charles Carey and Jack Sander, with the price $1,000 a person; it will take raising $10,000 to gain entrance to a private reception.

IF HE DOESN'T BRING LEIBERMAN, HOW CAN HE SPEAK?
LEIBERMAN IS THE MAN WHO TELLS HIM WHAT TO SAY!

WHAT A PHONE CALL, HEY JOE I'M GOING TO CHICAGO, LEIBERMAN SAYS
HAVE A GREAT TRIP, MCCAIN SAYS, JOE I NEED YOU TO GO WITH ME,
JOE SAYS, WHY, MCCAIN SAYS, JOE I MIGHT FORGET WHAT TO SAY AND YOU
CAN CORRECT ME, PLEASE GO TO CHI-TOWN WITH ME!
JOE SAYS, OKAY, WHAT TOWN ARE WE GOING TO, AGAIN!
LAUREL AND HARDY WILL BE IN TOWN TOMORROW!

IS HE FLYING ON THE WIFE'S PLANE AGAIN!
TELL MRS. MCCAIN TO RELEASE THOSE TAX RECORDS!
ABBOTT AND COSTELLO WILL BE IN TOWN, I MEAN MCCAIN AND LEIBERMAN!

Phil--stop shouting. Obama went to Connecticut to STUMP for Lieberman as and indy and AGAINST the Democratic candidate.
This is what a neophyte does. It was a MISTAKE.
It's okay--he'll have 8 years to LEARN from Hillary and Bill as veep.

Johnny, Chicago is not interested. Sell your bushism somewhere else.

Could you imagine the damage that could be done with this Frick and Frack team in power?

Please LIE-berman is not an Ind., Democrat he is a Ct.,For LIE-berman for the IND., party had a person in the CT., race and Ned Lamont was running on the DEM., ticket Joe LIE-berman started his own party. Check out( MY LEFT NUT MEG.COM) web site for the facts about LIE-berman and his new party.
