“Coffee with Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins” will be held from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Aug. 19 at the Kansas University School of Pharmacy, 2010 Becker Drive on the West Campus.

The event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, which asks those who plan to attend to make a reservation at lawrencechamber.com or by calling 865-4411.

A similar event scheduled for last month had to be canceled because Jenkins, R-Kan., was still in Washington as Congress worked on budget issues.

I would attend only if the Chamber will allow people to ask her the tough questions that go beyond the political talking points. Otherwise, its a waste of time.

Obama is charging $35,000 for sit with him and have coffee. And Jenkins probably won't answer questions from the public. Remind me, why do we vote for Democrats and Republicans?

because it is still illegal to vote for and elect body parts

Perhaps the honorable congresswoman should have her meet and greet on an evening or weekend when the general public could attend. She'd probably be shredded with not so fun questions.

Will anybody be able to find the School of Pharmacy?

She's an ALEC plant. But I may try to go...I'd love to ask her a few questions.

What is ALEC ? Sounds nice. I like Alec Guiness. I like Guiness. I like to like things.

American Legislative Exchange Council. You should know about them, as they run the state and national legislatures thru boiler plate bills written by those who will profit from them.

Heh. Last time I saw Lynn Jenkins it was before the election when she told a young mother to "Shut up and grow up."

CAIT--SOUNDS LIKE GOOD ADVICE THAT SHE SHOULD FOLLOW HERSELF.

And of course, she only comes when most people are working. She will only get the fat cats who are just giving up their golf time and retired people.
