Is That A Redskin Jersey On Stage With McCain/Palin

Hank Jr. was here with McCain and Palin rally and it looks like he had on a Redskins jersey. I just thought Matty and Saden would like that and I hope the link works.

In heart of a battleground state, McCain vows to fight on | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com

I tried the link and you have to click on the pics to the left and its the third pic.

Joe Gibbs is a huge Republican and I don't hate him. "Don't hate the players, hate the game and the gamers" is my motto.

As opposed to a fake person without real faults? When does being worth 1.2 million, in Alaska mind you, constitute middle class?

Worth does not alway mean how much money one has. I own a business which brings in a good income (middle class) but is worth about $675,000. I own an office building which is worth about $600,000. Now throw in my home and everything else and I'm worth more than Sarah. If you saw how I lived and my income you would call me middle class and even by Obama's scale I'm middle class. So net worth means very little in the real world. Look at farmers who work all day to bring home a decent living but because they own so much land their net worth is allot more then what they will ever see.

I am sure when Hank Jr goes to Nashville or Greenbay he will wear one of their jerseys. He just did it to be crowd friendly. because he was in Skins country.

I have seen him twice in concert back in the late 1980's when he turned a bunch of younger kids on to kick a$$ country and not the cry in your beer stuff.

Country just isn't my thing, and I'm not a fan of champagne either.

Re: Is That A Redskin Jersey On Stage With McCain/Palin

I've been to a couple of Hank Jr shows back in the late 80's and early 90's too.

I don't confess to listening to Hank Jr every day and all the time, but he's got some good music. Not everyone's going to be into it. I was more into that southern rock type of thing in high school but can still listen to it from time to time.

I think Hank Jr. Pulled from the Southern rock crowd which is what helped him to become such a big hit. His music had that country sound with that southern rock kick.

Not to digress here, but i thought these comments from J Gizzle re: the convention were pretty interesting.

Three days before the Republican National Convention I got a call that said, "Would you like to come and speak?" I thought about that and generally I stay away from the political world. I thought about it and I called several people who I have confidence in and we talked it over and the bottom line is I felt as if I should do that. And Jim Dobson probably gave me the best advice...he said, "I generally give it a shot." So I decided to take a shot. So I go there, Pat and I did, and I have my speech as you guys know from watching here on the Inspirational Game Plan. I only talk off of notes, I do not read anything. So I get there and here's how it played out. I think it would be interesting for all of you to hear this. I go in and they have two speech coaches there. They had taken my notes--I said this is what I'm going to talk of--and they had written a speech for me. So I took a look at it and I said I don't like reading off a prompter--I said that's not me, I'm not good at that. And they said, "Please, just try and give us a shot." So I read through it and I said it doesn't sound like me, it's not what I want to say, it's not my speech. So they kept hounding me--not really hounding me, but they wanted me to give this speech that they had written. So eventually I reached a point in there where I was kind of frustrated. And they said yours is still a little bit too long the way I gave it to them. They said maybe you ought to be rewriting this. So I go into another room and I'm kind of frustrated. Pat goes with me and I'm kind of saying to myself, as we do sometimes, why did this happen? And as I'm writing this Pat can tell I'm frustrated and she's just kind of being there giving me some advice.
About that time the door popped open and the person who was kind of running that whole production of the Republican National Convention was standing there and I think he sensed from the people who were in the room with me the frustration I had. When I saw him there I assumed he must be hear to talk about this problem so I immediately started off talking about the problem: "I don't like using the prompter, I don't like was written..."
And I got about that far and he said, "Hey Joe, I'm just here to pray with you." I was totally taken away by that. He grabbed both of my hands and he said lets just have a prayer. And he prayed for a few minutes and I prayed for him.

Then he left the room and Pat said to me, "They want you here, I think you should be here..." It encouraged me, I think it relaxed me. I went back in the room and gave the speech one more time for them and it fit in the time frame. And so I go up on the stage and they're worried about me making the time frame. And this is what happens, this is what happens at some of
these things: Two minutes before I'm supposed to go on a guy comes up and taps me on the shoulder and says, "Things are going a lot faster today. If you want to take more time, take more time." (Laughing) I said I can't, I got the thing rewritten. So I walk out on the stage, I give the speech, and the bottom line was--whatever happened there was the Holy Spirit and all this stuff was going on. Now after that they actually posted on the website my speech but it wasn't really my speech. It was the speech they wrote and it
says some things that I would never say. And so we spent two days trying to get that taken off the website. All I said at the end--and some of the people out there listening to this may be from the Democratic side of things--it is my hope that with this ticket that it would help lead us to a return to God's word and a revival in America. That's what I said and that's what I'm hoping, whatever happens in the election--that's my hope. I was there obviously though because I belief in the platform of the Republicans have. But it was an
interesting thing and that's why I share that with you.

Re: Is That A Redskin Jersey On Stage With McCain/Palin

Thanx SS! Interesting stuff.
I'm not sure there is room in this world for guys like Joe anymore? He has become an endangered species. A good man with Uncomprimising ideals, who places integrity, and character in high regard. It does not seem that sort of thing carries much weight anymore
