Juggling For The General...

Hello Fellow Jugglers!

I've been in New Hampshire for the last 12 days working on the Clark
campaign and juggling for The General.
http://www.clark04.com/

I've been juggling as much as possible at Wes Clark's events up here.
Last Thursday at the Democratic Presidential Debate I juggled five
glowballs in the snow near a bunch of Clark signs. I got the glowballs
for Christmas and hadn't really tried them out yet and it was the first
time I juggled in the snow. It was good times!

I've also been juggling torches while standing near Clark signs. At times
it's too cold up here even for torch juggling.

Last Friday night there was a big event for The General where Ted Danson
and his wife Mary Steenburgen introduced Wes Clark. However, traffic
caused The General to run a little late so I got on stage and juggled for
the audience. It was good times. It was my first experience juggling
five balls on stage in front of an audience of 900 people. And I was
actually able to land a few tricks and only drop a couple of times! Woo
Hoo!

One more quick story:
So, I was standing outside of this diner in Derry, NH juggling with all of
my Clark campaign gear on and John Kerry walks up to me and says, "Hey,
can I try?" And I said, "Sure. Do you want all five?" "No, just three."
So I gave him the three juggling balls, fergies by the way, and he began
to juggle them. Then I took two of them from him and was going to steal
the pattern but he stopped with the third one, looked at me and then kind
of lightly tossed it overhand to me so that it hit me in the chest. He
then went inside the diner. Later I was asked if I would vote for Kerry
now that I juggled with him and here was my response, "No, because Kerry
voted for the War with Iraq. Not only did he vote for the war, but he
voted against financially funding the troops that he sent to war."

Just to let you guys know: I've heard from relatives that this juggling
clip of Kerry and I is circling around the news stations across the
country (Texas, Oklahoma, Maryland and New Hampshire) so if you wonder who
the juggler was, it was me!

Cheers everyone!

That is very cool. If it wasn't for the real issues, like the war, Kerry
would have my (non-existing, because I'm only 16) vote.

Haven't seen it yet, but then again, I don't live in any of those states.
Let me know if it turns up online anywhere.
